Early Voting!

Today I'm thankful for early voting which has made my voting experience in the last six years very easy. In the three times I've voted, I've yet to vote on an official election day and I've always been slightly more informed about the candidates as a result of having the forms in front of me along with access to the candidate and issue websites.

I'm also thankful for the ability to apply to jobs online. It often feels like I'm simply sending applications out into the void, but when I do finally get some responses, it seems worth it.

Tonight we're getting together with some friends for dinner and I'm taking along one of my favorite salads, Mozzarella, Tomato, and Avocado, found here.

Mozzarella, Tomato, and Avocado Salad
1 container cherry tomatoes, cut in half
1 carton fresh mozzarella cheese pearls, drained
1 avocado, peeled and diced
1/3 cup basil, julienned
2 tablespoons fresh parsley
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup olive oil
salt and pepper

1. In a large bowl, combine the tomatoes, mozzarella, basil and parsley. Set aside.
2. In a small bowl, whisk the lemon juice, oil, salt and pepper. Pour over tomato mixture. Toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.
3. Just before serving the salad, stir in the chopped avocados. Serve salad with toasty bread.
