Why so quiet

I haven't been cooking or blogging because I was busy and then I was sick. Still sickish. The only good part about getting sick is that it renews your appreciation for health.

During this downtime, we finally started watching Glee. Cory Monteith is my new boyfriend. To try to become smarter, I read a Michael Pollan book about building a writing hut and while I know it's not as important and influential as his food work, I enjoyed it more. It's one of those books that has me seeing the world anew, actually thinking about windows and roofs and walls and wood and water. I also read Sarah Silverman's The Bedwetter, which has me seeing Sarah Silverman exactly as I did before: not that funny.  

The next cookbook I'll start, hopefully tomorrow, is Stir by Barbara Lynch, which both my mother and mother-in-law gave me for my birthday.
It has a huge pasta section (!), a tiny dessert section (boo), and I'm just waiting for a burst of vigor to begin. 


  1. totally agree about the michael pollan and sarah silverman. but disagree about the new boyfriend choice.

    and can't wait, i'm in the mood to hear about some pasta dishes.

    we missed you, hope you're feeling better!

  2. Take care, Tipsy. I was just mentioning your blog to an acquaintance this morning--I'm so enthralled with your adorable goats. He and his wife are building a house in Austin, Texas, and he tells me they're thinking--sheep. Woof!

    Hope you'll feel better soon.

  3. cant wait for you to have more food posts!

  4. I can not agree more! I love Glee (after only just starting to watch it) Hope you are 100% better soon :)

  5. Hope you get better soon. A few months back your book contract was mentioned in At the time you were dealing with your mom's health issues and I chose not to mention it.

    Looking forward to hearing about Stir.
