Weak at the knees.

Facts:1. I started my first job when I was 15. Since then, I've held a steady string of jobs to for a number of reasons: pay bills, learn responsibility, fund my shoe addiction. Somewhere between juggling 3 jobs (in one semester) and an 18 credit semester - I didn't learn the basics in the kitchen. It was much easier for me to grab a turkey sandwich.

2. I don't have a background in public speaking. Although I was an active FFA member, I didn't do speeches. I wish I would have, but I didn't.

Standing in front of an audience makes my knees forget they're supposed to hold me steady, my forehead becomes chilled with sweat and my vocabulary takes a right turn for the worst.

3. I love agriculture and communications. Although I write much like I would talk in everyday conversation on this blog - in my professional life I'm obsessed with AP Style. These two {agriculture and communications} have crashed in a multiple-car pile-up to give me an opportunity as a professional in the communications - and agricultural - industries.

On a good note, each Thursday I get to meet the wonderful homeowners who invite us into their backyard. Look at these guys - they're naturals!

I wear shorts to work.

I work downtown.

See - that's the view from my office. It's a pretty sweet gig.


Downtown it's pretty usual to see black suits, black heels, black glasses - basically your usual Men-in-Black scenario.

But, on Thursdays I put on my shorts.

It's weird, I know.

It's because my job puts me in a News on 6 viewer's backyard where I have the opportunity to talk about pork and the various ways to prepare pork during the grilling season.

It's pretty cool, really. Viewer's enter pictures of their backyard, and then on Thursday's the crew shows up - cameras, meteorologist, grill.... pork.

Today we're grilling Southwestern Grilled Pork Tenderloin. To be fair - I always look into how much time goes in to preparing the meals. So, be assured this recipe is pretty simple - and delicious.

Oh, and if you're not keeping up with Oklahoma Weather let me fill you in. It's hot. Shorts are very much appropriate.
