Dark days and cookbooks

Well, it is starting to get dark here by 3pm and is completely dark by 4pm. Thank god the winter solstice is only 15 days away. And on that note, I will be leaving for my Christmas trip to Southern Ireland that day, going on a backpacker tour. Will have a day or so in Dublin on either end and can’t wait to get going. I haven’t been to the island of Ireland since I left last September, so this is the longest I’ve been away in over 3 years.

On another note, I’ve decide to submit a story and recipe to a cookbook an author I admire is planning on putting together.

Well, I read Rita’s story. That was fantastic. But was disappointed that i couldn’t get at the recipe that went with it. Is your story that amazing?

Well, the recipe you will have to wait on, as she will no doubt wait to share until the book is published. It did say it was going to be a finger food though;)

Um, my story is not that….heated, shall we say, but it will have a warm and fuzzy element. And I’m stealing your sloppy joe recipe to send in;)

Update: The author emailed me back and said she liked my writing. Good stuff, getting a compliment like that from a writer one respects, and gives me a little balance between feedback, as my research/academic writing skills are lacking at the moment (very hard to change one’s writing style).

Sure, I’ll email you the story and recipe. Don’t think the book will be published anytime soon.
