Today started with a long senior executive service meeting at work. It was a really good session. Our department has really grown into a much more positive and engaged agency over the last year and working there is a joy. During a break I started making notes for dinner in Evernote. I knew I didn’t want something heavy, I wanted something light so I decided on a salmon burger.
