And the Heavenly Stole works for audiobooks, but not for television, so I cast on for Tempting II last night:
Writing: I was done with the first chapter until I decided to add a scene yesterday. Now I'm done with the first chapter!
Reading: Still on White Teeth. Good book.
Cooking: I've been on a soup kick lately. Here's yesterday's:
1 tsp olive oil
1 small onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
3 cups vegetable stock
1 medium zucchini, diced
3/4 cup frozen spinach
1 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/4 cup alphabet or other tiny pasta
Heat the olive oil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic and cook until onion is translucent, about 7 minutes. Add vegetable stock, zucchini, spinach, salt, and pepper, and bring to a boil. Add pasta. Reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes. Adjust seasonings as needed.
