    Last night my wife and I sat down and created a nice, balanced, dinner menu for the rest of the week.  No more wondering what we will cook or if we need to run to the store, and forget the "We have nothing to eat" phrase.  Plus, we will be able to check off some of these other food challenges by planning them into our meals.

    Welcome to the Interface Team!

    We have set (3) internal goal for our team to help gauge participation and plan for future challenges.  What are they? Its a mystery for now,  but here are some hints to..point.. you along: 
    1. You did it!  (wasn't that easy? Now poke your neighbor, politely)
    2. Thought for food (I mean..food for thought..wait..did you say food?)
    3. Think Grand (no, its not a trip to the Grand Canyon)
    Goals will be reviled at the end of the competition during our close out event. 

    Until then, have some fun and keep up the good habits folks!

    So many options for challenges, it seems impossibly hard to not find something interesting to participate in.
