Friday Fare: 10/27/17

This article seems timely with Halloween upon us.

I think I’ve talked before about how much I appreciate good journalism. Obviously, that stems from my past life as a reporter.  But there’s nothing more satisfying to me than a well executed series of stories.  Check out this one from the Los Angeles Times about a woman who fell in love with the wrong man.  (Bonus:  It’s already run in its entirety so you can binge at once.)

This soup is my secret weapon.  Chicken.  Wild Rice.  Crockpot.  (And because I’m lazy – erm, busy – I get everything from Trader Joe’s, including their pre-cut mirepoix, and all I need to do is dump everything in the crockpot and let it cook.)

Listening: Always worth a watch:

Reading: I finished Jenny Kales’s “Secrets and Pie” her latest installment in her Callie’s Kitchen Mysteries series.  Cozy mysteries aren’t usually my jam, but there’s something addictive about Jenny’s combination of a kick ass character, authentic Greek recipes, and a mystery series set in a quaint Wisconsin town.

Writing Life: Dragonfly – Edits. Edits. Edits. I’ve surmounted my pacing issue (I hope?) and am plugging along.  Cooked To Death – I have a short story that was published in a short story anthology called “Cooked To Death: Lying on a Plate.”  I’m incredibly proud to be included with some killer authors – Kristi Belcamino, Wendy Webb, Christine Husom among some of them.  See my Publications page for purchasing details!
