I finally made it to the local Din Tai Fung.
Delicious & only a 15 minute wait for lunch at 1:30 on a Friday!
I wouldn't have realized this, except a local company reached out and tried to hire me for an in-house position. And I was actually interested. I prepared a resume for the first time in 12 years. It felt good to look at a list of all that I've accomplished professionally since I last tried to get hired. Ultimately, the job was not a good fit -- the job description was a little aspirational -- describing what the hiring manager would love for the role to evolve into at some point in the future rather than a true description of what the job actually would be on day 1. There were a couple of other issues that made it not a great option for me as well, but it was fun to get a sense of how desirable my skill set is in a corporate environment after 8 years of being on my own.

After agreeing to speak with the law firm, I realized I should probably explore my options more fully if that's what I'm doing. So, I spoke with a recruiter who I put on hold 'til next week and reached out to a firm I'd turned down in the past but really liked to set up a chat with them.
Time to research recipes led me to brown rice straciatella -- so good!
This is going to be a regular in the soup rotation.
