Name change; Game change

The last four months have been so full of change. After nearly 10 years of marriage, I changed my name to Angela Bedell. No hyphens, just Bedell. (When you have a child and they go to school, it's amazing how confusing it can get to have different names.)

I'm nearly four months into a new job as Executive Director of "Metro Med," or Kansas City's local medical society. I'm enjoying working with this physician community even more than I anticipated. My Board of Directors is incredibly savvy and smart.

Life is good, life is full.

The only way to eat lobster

I have fallen in love with Ruth Reichel's cookbooks, books and blog.  Here is a post I had to share steal.

A Perfect Meal

“I also stubbornly maintain that the only real way to cook lobsters is in three or four inches of sea water, in a covered kettle, for about twelve minutes (pound and a quarter lobsters being the ideal size). You then drape these dazzling creatures over the rocks until they cool off a bit, tear them apart with the bare hands, dip each piece in melted butter and guzzle. There should be from two to six lobsters per person. While the lobsters cook and cool off, two dry martinis should be served. Nothing whatever else should be served- we are eating all the lobster we want, we are not fooling around with salad, or strawberry shortcake or even coffee. All you need are the martinis, plenty of lobsters, millions of paper napkins and a view.”

Wheels around the world

Alaska, Chicago, New Orleans.
All in 2007.

My "wheel" isn't quite as high since my C-section at the young age of 43, but I can still {barely} do one.
