    Gift Guide: Attorneys

    Fast and Easy Potluck Options

    As I start preparing for the year to wind down, I look at my calendar and realize I have quite a few potlucks and group lunches on schedule.  I really enjoy this time of year because it lets me try out new dishes.  But I also remember in law school there was talk about the book Nice Girls Don’t Get the Corner Office and how it was verboten to bring food because it would make the women look…weak, I guess?  Or it brought attention to our femininity.  No se.  I’ve never read the book, but I think providing food and comfort really is dependent on the culture of your office.…
