It was a pretty good salad and a nice way to finish a day after a few long days at work. We’ve got the Ebola Response Taskforce going plus the Frozen Berries contaminated by Hepatitis A virus situation as well as the usual sort of work in the department.  We had senate estimates yesterday. Our outcomes were on first thing as part of the whole of portfolio session and then late last night when communicable diseases and health security sessions were on. 

So what’s your salad of choice after a long day at work?
