Peach & Blueberry Pie

This peach & blueberry pie recipe was given to me by my cousin, Jeni … I have NO IDEA where it came from beyond her, but it’s tastebud twisting yummy! So the next time you find yourself with a few extra peaches that you haven’t eaten quickly enough (I know, I know -- yeah, right, extra peaches), I highly recommend you give this pie a taste test! It’s DELICIOUS! Enjoy!!!

Spicy Jalapeno Shrimp Pasta

Here's a delicious recipe I made this summer. I like to use fresh shrimp (size 16-20 count, meaning 16-20 per pound) and linguine in this recipe but any pasta will work.

Wednesday, July 29, 2020 to Saturday, August 29, 2020

Looking into the future, NCAR/UCAR faces unprecedented changes in the environmental, social, political, and technological areas that impact our work leading and facilitating Earth system science (ESS) for a better world. That’s why the UCAR/NCAR Workforce Management team is taking a close look at what our workforce needs will be within the next 10 years to ensure NCAR/UCAR remains a strong and relevant influencer in the global ESS community.

The team is holding three virtual summits to gather staff input that will guide implementation strategies for UCAR’s Workforce Management Plan. You’ll have the chance to share your thoughts on topics such as:

  • Talent acquisition
  • Talent management, career development, and retention
  • Performance management
  • Succession, retirement, and legacy planning
  • Organizational structure/working environment

 

SUMMIT DETAILS

All three virtual summits will cover the same topics and follow the same agenda, but each one will approach the topics from the perspective of a different career stage:

 

 

 

Because many factors other than years of experience can play a role in determining an individual’s career stage, the Workforce Management team has chosen to not define the stages and instead asks participants to self-identify.

*Any staff member, regardless of their career stage, may participate in any of the summits (and may register for more than one).*

Spots are limited, so register today using the links above.

Questions? Reach out to Sue Brundege, Talent & Learning Development Manager in HR (contact information below).

For your Taco Tuesday cravings ...

Ancho Lime Lentil Tacos

This recipe is the one my family tried first when we first wanted to add a vegetarian meal to our weekly plan, but (I won’t lie) we were afraid.  Tacos are friendly -- so this was a go.  And yes, we loved them and have made them since.  Embarrassed to admit how easy it is to add a vegetarian meal.  Hello … Old Dog, meet New trick.

Grilled Fish Tacos with Crema

In my house -- we don’t add lettuce, cheese or anything else to these tacos.  But hey, food is personal, if you like it add it and let me know what your family tried!  Enjoy!

Avocado Salsa

This is a recipe that is extremely common within my culture. Easy to make and great taste. This could easily be used to go with the avocado toast or upcoming recipes for tacos and salads. Enjoy!

Smashed Avocado Toast

If you know me, you know I love a good Avocado Toast! It’s quick and simple, and you can add whatever you like on it ... like a pizza but with an avocado base. I usually make this at home for breakfast, brunch, or lunch, but I’ve also made it into an event favorite in the past by turning it into an Avocado Toast Bar with all different toppings. Enjoy!
