Laurie did you check out Glassdoor? Sometimes you can find actual interview questions on there, and insight as to what the process will be like for the interview. I know it was helpful to my husband when he was looking, especially with big corporations like you are dealing with.
I'm making a big batch of sausage and peppers with this new local chicken sausage I've discovered. My kitchen smells heavenly. I'm on a massive cleaning/throwing away binge in my kids playroom as I prepare to move it all down to the new playroom in the basement. I have a thing for throwing away, makes me insanely happy. Like, manically happy. Tonight is my daughters big end of year show at her preschool. Big night!

Laurie, I promise I will send you that recipe.
I don't serve it with pasta. I don't do it in a red sauce, I roast it, its a little non traditional. I take red potatoes, red bell peppers and sausage (sometimes I add chicken thighs as well), lots of cloves of garlic and fresh rosemary, rub it down with a healthy dose of olive oil, and roast the whole lot of it at 425 for about an hour. Its delish. I usually serve it with a salad, tonight I'm doing it with mixed summer squashes and roasted tomatoes as I have a ton on hand.
As far as pasta substitutes go I have yet to find one that I really love. Its a challenge for an italian girl like me. This is my favorite to date Pasta, Rice and Grains - Pasta - Rustichella d'Abruzzo Pasta - Gluten-Free Pasta - Market Hall Foods and I also like some of the rice pastas as well. I haven't heard of that sausage but will keep an eye out!
I had a nice Mothers Day. I'm not big on celebrating it, it's kind of like Valentines Day to me, I like the sentiment but not the feeling that someone feels forced to do something for me that particular day, kwim? My kids gave me some buttons and marbles that they picked out and paid for with their own money, and made me cards, and recited poems that they wrote & memorized. DH tried to remind them to not fight too much, and we went out for dinner but we'd have probably done that anyway. I enjoyed many glasses of white wine and got all teary-eyed looking at old photos on the computer.
I'm trying very hard to be a good team player but one of my co-worker's is making it very difficult. I think he made our organization look bad in a meeting yesterday but our boss doesn't seem to want to do anything about it. Ugh.
Join the revolution & take back our holidays!
Change Black Friday into Buy Nothing Day, and don't take your credit cards to work on Cyber Monday.
Shift Your Shopping from mass marketers & big box stores to your local independent retailers & small artisans.
Practice a Buy Nothing Christmas. Instead of buying more things, give gifts of your time, your energy, and maybe even some unwanted things around your home; organize a used items gift swap among your family and/or friends.
I got out all the summer stuff, but I am afraid to put away the winter wear yet. Even the snow pants are still piled on the freezer cause it traditionally snows May long weekend. I will put them away after that.

We are all over the weather map too. We went into the negatives at some points this winter and we usually don't go over 90 in the summer but it gets super humid here
