A visit to Willow Tree Apps, job interview theatrics and an unlikely favorite recipe

  After being back in the office officially for just a little over a week after having my second daughter—it’s certain to say I don’t necessarily have the time to write on our blog today.  But sometimes, you have to stop and reflect and document a day.  Because it was that good.

Last week’s “top 5 highlights” at The PB &J Kitchen

1. Spending 101 smiling camper hours in the kitchen… 2. The invention of the word “Quickle” Our 35 Keystone Produce shares scattered around downtown Charlottesville businesses received as their weekly “demonstration of how to use an item of produce in your bag this week”  DELICIOUS quick pickles.
