With the first semester almost in the books, the Thida (and Noonoy) teachers were treated to a great dinner at Sizzler by Peter! For some, it was our first time there; for others, it was a nice break from market meals and the usual go to spots.
Obviously, Sizzler is known for their salad bar! Frankly, it was refreshing to have a proper salad–both Caesar and greens. All the toppings are there–croutons, bacon bits, cucumbers/vegetables, corn, dressing, etc. It felt quite nice to give my body some greens! Also, there are some excellent soups (I didn’t partake in them, but gives me something to look forward to!).
I recommend the southwest chicken/pork chop combo! It’s filling, delicious, and well worth the money. After that entree and a few trips to the salad bar, well there was no way to treat myself to dessert! I can safely speak for everybody when I say we all rolled out of the restaurant!
Of course, the bigger pictures was to get everybody together and appreciate everybody’s efforts for a job well done this term! It’s been a long term and we’re down to the final hour and each and every teacher has done an excellent job keeping the train going. Often times, it’s easy to pack it away early, but I’m proud everybody is finishing strong!
Many times we don’t get as much of a chance to socalize and talk about outside interests. It was great to hear everybody’s plans for the long holiday–lots of travels, visits home, chilling out. Each one sounds great! We had a great turn out and it was a great dinner!
Thida (and Noonoy) break for the semester next Friday, September 30th. We’re in the process currently of giving and marking final exams. Still a good bit to do, however. Trips to immigration, sorting out grade sheets, having one last party with our kids.
I know I’m thankful for this break to recharge my batteries! I love working at Thida but sometimes time away to refresh kickstarts the short second semester!
Note: I typically forget to take pictures at these dinners and Sizzler was no different. I was too busy stuffing my face!!
