As I read my inspiration for my Sargento recipe, I laugh to myself, because this is so fitting to my current season of life.
In October 2012, I was laid off my job - which wasn’t the worst thing that could have happened. I was getting bored with the daily tasks and found that I no longer
could maintain that spark that was so much a part of my professional life. My husband and I decided that I would use this opportunity to reevaluate my professional career before I began ‘beating the pavement’ on the hunt for a new job. Then, we were given
the opportunity to move to Seattle once my husband completes seminary. So I have decided that this is a prime moment in my life to revamp myself. To do something different - to create a new me.
This inspired my new Sargento recipe...Cheesy Couscous Stuffed Pork Chops using Sargento’s 4 State Cheddar
I choose something I’m very comfortable cooking which is pork chops and added an element that I was totally unsure about - the couscous. The pork
chops represents my current life, what I know for sure and what I know I can offer any new employer. The couscous represents Seattle. Its unknown to me - I really don’t know anyone and how to job search, but its exciting and different and I can’t wait to get
The pork chops with the couscous made a perfect marriage of savory and cheesy. Now, each were terrific alone, but eaten together made it a much more
enjoyable meal. That’s how I’m viewing my search for a new job in Seattle. Combining what I know with a little of the unknown to make a perfect recipe for a new job. Wish me luck!
