  1. When a new job gives you biscuits, make a breakfast casserole


    May 13, 2015 by Ashlee Clark Thompson

    A dream job seemed like a fantasy. For the past few years, I’ve assumed that a job was something I had to tolerate for eight hours a day so I would have enough money to pursue the activities about which I was really passionate. I was lucky enough to land somewhere that wasn’t too bad. My co-workers were fun. The work was new. I gave up the idea of earning a paycheck from doing what I love and loving what I do (a first-world mantra that glosses over things like taxes, rent and savings accounts) and settled into a content cubicle life.

    Then my dream job showed up, slapped me in the face and reminded me that you can do what you love and get paid for it.

    Last week, I began working at the technology and review website CNET as a senior associate editor. I test and review ovens for a living. Seriously. I can’t make this up. A food writer landed in a job that requires boiling water, broiling burgers and baking biscuits in order to recommend which ranges are a good fit in consumers’ homes.

    Y’all, I’m living the dream. Let’s pause for a praise break.

    Full disclosure: I only follow sports enough to carry on small talk after a big event like the Super Bowl. I am, however, a fan of any occasion that calls for appetizers.

    If you plan on going to or hosting a Super Bowl party, check out one of my boards on Pinterest called Dips, Bites and Other Delights.
