PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE

“ Think of the past as our lesson, the present as our gift, and the future as our motivation. ” ~Unknown

TELL US ABOUT YOUR STAY-AT-HOME DUTIES AND COWORKERS

Linda Speight (Westhampton Golf Shop): “ My stay-at-home duties are entertaining a 3-year-old or her entertaining me, LOL. This day she was Peppa Pig who is also English. She is also jumping in muddy puddles. ”

Adrienne Neel (Communications): “ My new coworker, Porter (2.5 years old), drew all over himself with marker while I answered a quick email. ”

Chris White (Security): “ Shortly after the school shutdown, my wife (being the amazing teacher she is) decided to post something to the school FB page to engage the kids. Well, our three-year-old yellow lab Wallace was not having it. He apparently did not like the activity and he took it down. He is now on a ‘ behavior plan. ’”

CCV STORY TIME

Jon Cowne (Building Services): “ One night, during my time as night watchperson, after I had turned down most of the lights throughout the building earlier in the evening, I got up to make a round of the building. About halfway down the Main Hall, I saw an object about head high floating. The hair on the back of my neck stood up, adrenaline started to course through me, and I prepared for a confrontation as there should not be anyone there, thinking it was either a person or a ghost. I shone my flashlight upon the object, and it was a helium balloon from a party earlier in the evening, starting to lose the helium and sinking to the floor. Whew!”

GOT THE HOME SCHOOLING BLUES? HERE ARE SOME TIPS:

Kathy Haynes (Accounting): “ The best thing that we have found as a family that has helped with their school work is to print out a monthly calendar, and write out when all their school work is due. At the start of the week, I also like to help them break down their workload for the week by writing on each day what they should work on. This way they are not as overwhelmed, and all work is completed on time.”

PASTA ALLA LO:

Lo Honeycutt (Golf), shared this receipe that she likes to make with her husband.

Ingredients: -

2 cups of flour (your choice of flour) - 1/2 teaspoon of salt - 3 eggs Also need: - Whisk or fork - Mixing bowl - Counter space - Clean dish towel - Rolling pin Steps : -

Whisk together the flour and salt in a big bowl. - In the flour mixture, create a well to add the cracked eggs to. - Scramble the eggs. Gradually incorporate flour to the eggs. Do not rush this step! - The egg and flour mixture should be like a dough now. It is time to start kneading! - Put the dough on a clean counter with flour lightly sprinkled to prevent the dough from sticking. - To knead the dough, gently fold the dough on itself. Fold, flattening, and folding again. If the dough starts to get sticky, add some flour. - Test the dough when you think you are done. To do this use a paring knife to slice the dough. If the dough looks like it had a lot of air bubbles, you need to keep kneading! - Time to rest the dough now. Put the dough into a clean big bowl. Cover with a clean dish towel. And let sit on your counter for at least 30 minutes. - After your dough has rested, sprinkle your counter again with flour. Take the dough from the bowl and place on the counter. Divide the dough into four equal parts by using a knife. - Using one of the four dough balls, roll the pasta with a roller. The goal is to get your pasta as flat as possible. Keep moving the dough you are working with so it does not stick to the counter and gets rolled evenly flat. - Once your dough is as flat as you would like your noodles. Lightly fold the dough to cut long strips with a very sharp knife. Toss the newly cut noodles with flour. - Boil a large pot of water with a generous amount of salt. Cook the pasta to your desired texture, 4-5 minutes. - Add your favorite pasta sauce. And enjoy!

IF YOU COULD HAVE ONE EMPLOYEE MEAL RIGHT NOW, WHAT WOULD IT BE? Sean Bonner (The Grill): “The spaghetti sounds really good right about now.”

Sherrod Hartridge (Support Services): “The grilled salmon. Whoever cooks it puts everything into it. It’s good!”

Kasia Zieba (Banquets): “I would love to make a salami, ham and t urkey sandwich from the sandwich bar day. It is easy and tasty.” Thijs Rot (Valet): The broccoli and rice casserole, chicken nuggets with fries, or a grilled cheese sandwich with tomato soup. Any of those would be great!

Stafford Terrell (Cool Springs Cafe): “Definitely the BBQ, spoonbread, and greens! That combination is mouth-watering good!”
