Hello Fellow CDM, CFPPs! I hope this finds everyone healthy and trying to find a doable “work/life balance” and a great hobby to keep your mind in a quiet place each day! In the past few weeks during this pandemic, my thoughts have gone out to all the states and counties that are having to cancel their state and county fairs this summer. I grew up in rural Nebraska as a 4H kid who learned many talents through this wonderful program! I can proudly say many of the talented “Blue Ribbon” bakers back home could work circles around Martha Stewart, and we were lucky to have them share their wonderful farm life skills with us as small kids. We were all in it together; ...

Hyped on Hobbies

Be the first person to recommend this.
To be really happy and really safe, one ought to have at least two or three hobbies, and they must all be real. - Winston Churchill I find Churchill’s quote profound in that he offers his perspective and points out that two or three hobbies would make it real! It makes me happy to know that my many, many (too many to count, and at times to control) hobbies fall well into the category of making it real! I told my husband not to worry about the amount of yarn hanging about the house! The many pandemic pitfalls we are living through currently makes having a hobby a great stress outlet to ground yourself and slow down the chaos within your life. It’s also a ...

Corralling Chaos

Be the first person to recommend this.
A long walk in the corn fields, canyons, or watching the cows graze or horses run was a great way to “slow down the world” and just take in the beauty of the day! This was how I was raised; “just go outside for a while and things will look better.” That’s what my grandmother would always say. She’s no longer with us but her wisdom still reigns! I find myself sharing her wisdom with many these days as we need to “slow down the chaos” and try corralling it. A hometown “cowgirl” friend shared the following devotional reading. It fits what we need to ponder in the upcoming COVID-19 days… TRUST THE DRIVER. As a general rule, horses don’t like trailers, and ...

Do YOU Lead your Day, or Does IT Lead You? Reflect for a moment on this quote: “ A LEADER IS ONE WHO KNOWS THE WAY, GOES THE WAY, AND SHOWS THE WAY!" - John C. Maxwell Now, honestly ask yourself: are you leading or being led once you walk into your job? Burnout, wipeout, put out, all can happen once you become acclimated in your work culture. I always left my house joyful, excited, and energized with my mug of coffee in hand, smiling and greeting those I met along the way! THEN I WOULD SEE MY OFFICE DOOR. I let that define my mood and day depending on how many notes were taped to it or stuffed under the door. The pink colored notes blinded me from ...

Have you ever asked yourself, heard from your staff or even your child, “how am I supposed to know all of that?” Have you ever given or heard the response, “because you should know?” Or, worse yet, “Because it’s your job!” We know what we know because we are curious enough to figure it out. Or, our curiosity led us to seek it out through education! As CDM, CFPPs, we did just that. We became certified in foodservice management and food safety! Do we have all the answers to our job’s daily questions? Are we all Jeopardy masters, able to clear the game board? Probably not, BUT we are expected to know where to look and how to share what we know! Here are some ...

Do you really know what the initials behind your name mean and how they are regulated? I am always amazed when I see business cards with a virtual alphabet soup behind the person’s name, and am interested to learn what their credentials mean as they decipher them for me. So let me ask: Can you clearly state what the CDM, CFPP initials signify when asked by those outside the foodservice world? In general, our colleagues in health care have a better idea than most as to what they mean, but at times might ask for a refresher. My mother has yet to fully understand what I do (I’ve been a CDM, CFPP for 22 years), so to help with questions that arise when she attempts ...

It is budget time around ANFP. This requires a great deal of tedious work at the computer. Today we have a bit of a reprieve from the snow, but it is still very cold. Nice to at least get a glimpse of the sun. We also have a family of foxes who live on our premises. To my knowledge, they are a family of four. Today one of the pups has been out all day. It may be time to name him. Any ideas?
