Wednesday wisdom

So today I wanted to re-register/reactivate myself with a few area focus group companies. Of the 3 I worked with in past years, one no longer has an office near me.

So in addition to reactivating the other two, I did a search online for "CT focus group companies" and wound up registering for another 4 or 5 more I hadn't known about. So hopefully this will results in some small income.

Tonight I went to an MS dinner meeting sponsored by a drug company. It's not the drug I take but I like to stay abreast of all the MS drugs should I ever need to use them, and so I don't need to just rely on my doctor's advice.

Plus it's a free dinner. Smile And I enjoy the social aspect of meeting others there and even practicing my public speaking by asking the doctor questions. This one was at a hotel about 35 minutes away and I must say, everything at the buffet was excellent, including the mushroom salad, chicken, mashed potatoes and broccolini and apple crisp for dessert.

I made a habit of seeking out these meetings when I wasn't working in the past by going on the drug makers' websites.

I attended a Networking with Linked In webinar. She went thru a lot of important stuff very quickly but it's apparent I need to spend a LOT more time on Linked In, especially to identify my "target" companies. Right now, I don't really have any target companies, ie companies you've decided you want to work for.

Tomorrow, dad may possibly come over in the afternoon so we can take some large boxes of art supplies that won't fit in my honda up to a certain gallery owner who said she'd take them.

This is one thing I really like about not having a regular job. Every day is a little different. It's not the same boring routine.

I also need to cook up the 2 eggplant i picked, to make more baba ganousch. Once I find a recipe I like, i stick with it. Smile

    Try Deborah Madison's! The only baba I've truly loved.

    I have the cookbook, so will share the recipe for "roasted eggplant puree" that's part of this recipe if you're interested.

    I'm enjoying your daily alliteration!

    Hi, Ceejay. That link did not work for me but yes, I'd like to see the recipe if you have it. Mine just has 5 ingredients: eggplant, olive oil, garlic, tahini and sesame seeds.

    Did you take the space out after the https:// ? I have to put it in or I can't post a link to comments.

    I'll try to remember to post the recipe tonight when I'm near my cookbook!

  5. PatientSaver Says:

    Thanks, Ceejay. I've got it now. It's identical to the recipe I now use except for adding the olive oil in a depression in the dip with the sprinkled parsley. I will try that!

    Free food and free info, usually a good combination. Smile
