It is a rare occasion when I go out to lunch. Today was the Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce Women’s Resource Council Lunch (that’s a mouthful) at Green Valley Country Club. I was really looking forward to going. It is the one time a month I get to spend time with my mom and go to a professional outing. Mom is a big supported of the Chamber, she loves all their events and shares them with everyone. So I get a date with mom and a networking function all in one.
What a nice event. The women in this Chamber are so friendly and supportive of each other. A group of women who are out on a mission of being professionals and being a real part of the community. I am so impressed with everyone I meet there, I wish the luncheons were more often. We usually have our lunch at Peppers in King of Prussia. Peppers always starts with bread, Italian roasted peppers, then a salad, then a huge portion of lunch that is either pasta or a meat & veggie plate, followed by dessert and great coffee. I always take half home.
Today’s meal was on the light side. A mesclun salad topped with either salmon, chicken or tofu, green apple, dried cranberries, pine nuts, and cherry tomatoes in a vinaigrette. It was served with a multigrain dinner roll. Dessert for the vegan was fresh fruit, the non-vegans had warm apples, raisins, cinnamon with ice cream on top and we all had a good cup of coffee. It was nice, a meal that did not leave you tired. I always feel energized after these luncheons. I love speaking with all the women and learning what they do and sharing what I do. The speaker today was excellent. Dr. Kristin Marcussen, a chiropractor, who addressed how to handle stress through the holidays. Very informative. Who knew your spinal disks were hydrated by water? I love learning new things. Dr. Kristen did a great job and had everyone’s full attention. I can’t wait to go to all the events the Women’s Council has planned for the new year. I will keep you updated!
