223/365 Chez Dezra



I used to have cookouts on the balcony where I worked. I would bring my little single-serving George Foreman grill, plug it into the outside outlet, and grill steak and green peppers. I carried out my diffenbachia and placed a lovely tabletop palm on the table, always a nice touch. Cushions from chairs became seats. Shoes off is mandatory! Then I would have a nice, outdoor lunch. I called my little outdoor cafe Chez Dezra.

My co-workers would join me sometimes and if they couldn’t, they would put in an order to go. Fun times!

Two WONDERFUL women!

  1. I think you would be a fun person to work with! Why do you speak of this in past tense?

    • I no longer work there. A new administration took over and destroyed what we had. My whole department, with the exception of three people, left.

      But it was so much fun and the people I worked with were wonderful. I doubt I’ll ever work in such an idyllic environment again. I have beautiful memories of that time.

  2. Of course I do not advocate it but you might have a sense, as I do, as to why some people, after losing a job they loved, go back and start shooting.
    You are a beauty Dezra.

  3. Mmmm, I’ll have a large order of the steak (mediium-rare) & green peppers. Any chance of a lightly-chilled India Pale Ale to go with that?
