Found Food :: A Doctoral Dissertation :: Bribery with Food

This week has been low on tech time for me, thus only this post so far. My husband defended his doctoral dissertation today and I provided the food for the "event". Don't you think that possibly contentious or even high-stress events are eased with a complimentary presentation of breads, cheeses and grapes? I added the cupcakes from Cupcake Chic (Orem, Utah) to add a little sweet tooth to the spread. In my previous life I catered events and I can't just hide that part of me away when I have the opportunity to share food in a pleasant way. 

This time it wasn't in an elegant setting, but I liked adding a little flair to a doctoral dissertation defense!

And whether it was the food or the presenter (I'm sure it had a lot to do with the presenter), my husband passed his defense!

  1. First, if ever I do a doctoral defense, will you please cater it? Second, congrats to you and Adam both for passing! That's awesome news.

  2. That is a sure thing. Maybe I should start a side business - doctoral defense caterer... hmmm. Thanks!
