Hello, I’m Pam …
A wine-crazed culinary school grad who is a geocaching nut! Facing daily life with my dad (who has Alzheimer’s,) my mom who is his main caregiver, my own children who are grown, our first grandchild, loving my husband and trying to fit it all in.
At 40, I finally decided what I wanted to do when I grow up – cook. So, I took a leap and went to culinary school. My life before had been a series of jobs – not career choices. Secretarial, administrative, lots of non-profit work and even video editing. I’d always loved cooking for others and decided to try that…it worked.
Today, I manage the cafe’ at our church. Menu-planning and cooking for Wednesday Dinner and for Sunday breakfast. Wednesdays are a plated dinner with at least three choices and dessert. We’ve served up to 150 people on Wednesdays, but are currently in a transitional period and serving less. Sundays are biscuits & gravy, omelettes, corned beef hash and eggs, breakfast burritios and breakfast sandwiches … all freshly made each Sunday. I love working here; it gives me the illusion of running a restaurant without all the pain and worry!
But, being like you, I have a wide and varied array of interests. I spend a lot of time geocaching with my husband, Steve. We love wine tasting and have even helped in the production of our own wines, made in my brother’s garage! I love photography and takes lots and lots of photos and I love reading. It seems there’s never enough time for all I want to do!! How about you??
