Garden Vegetable Tomato Sauce

This recipe is great if you happen to grow a lot of these vegetables & herbs in your garden! Here is an easy way to boost your vegetable intake while adding lots of flavor to your pizza, pasta, lasagna, zucchini noodles, or anything else you can think of. We used to make a “Revved Up Tomato Sauce” in the schools I worked in that seemed like it had everything in it, from parsnips to spinach, so if you have leftover vegetables you can add it in the recipe as well. Since a lot of the students would only eat pasta with tomato sauce, at least they were eating more of a variety of vegetables. So if you have picky kids at home you can take it a step further and blend the sauce so that they don’t pick out the chunks!

Latin American Filet Mignon with Chimichurri, Avocado & Jicama Salad

I found this recipe by Tyler Florence about 20 years ago on the Food Network.  I immediately fell in love with it and always bring it out for special occasions.  I love the fresh flavors of the chimichurri and jicama, and of course I always love a filet mignon.  This salad is a great summertime salad and I make it all of the time.

Now that we are all working from home, this may be a great time for you to explore some virtual training, education or certificate programs that support your work and advance your professional or career development. We’d like to highlight two key learning benefits that UCAR offers to all employees: Workday Learning and the Education Assistance program.

Workday Learning, a component of Workday, is a Learning Management System (LMS) that combines professional development, peer learning, and required training into a single intuitive application, so employees can engage in learning at their own time and pace.

Although many of you have already taken advantage of Workday Learning, we’d like to share some highlights around the new learning opportunities available to all employees. In addition, we’d like to introduce you to the extensive elearning content provided by LinkedIn Learning (formerly Lynda.com) through Workday!

For example, if you’re interested in exploring self-care and wellness resources on LinkedIn Learning, check out these videos.

For more details, read the Workday Learning and LinkedIn Learning FAQ.

UCAR's Education Assistance Program assists eligible employees by offering financial support for qualifying educational programs, such as course work or degrees from accredited educational institutions, or certification programs through professional societies. Self-directed learning—such as taking elearning courses through Workday Learning or work-related seminars or conferences—is not covered by this program, but may be supported by your lab, program, or department.

For more information on how to take advantage of this great employee benefit, visit the UCAR Education Assistance Program webpage, email Stefania Damiani or call her at x8715.
