It’s not what you know, but . . .

 . . . who you know, and I know some brilliant folks. I spent the day making karhi and the best basmati rice ever, reading Isabel Allende’s Daughter of Fortune (fun!) and also making extra-dark chocolate pudding for dessert. I’m too pooped to even try to riff off of somebody else’s blog post. But you can visit Averil’s blog for a very literary and intriguing interview with Laura Maylene Walter, author of the hot-off-the-press short story collection, Living Arrangements. I have yet to get it from Amazon, but it’s getting raves from everyone I know who’s read it.

Hmm. Shall I have a second serving of pudding?

I’m not sure which one I’m craving more right now, basmati (oh, that scent!) or pudding . . . but I’ll believe I’ll be making lentil dal for dinner!

Have another serving for me, Tulasi-Priya!

I have this wonderful recipe for lentils braised in red wine. They’re full of pearl onions, served on garlic toast with wilted spinach. Now I know what we’ll be having for dessert.

Nom nom nom . . .

I bow down to all of you. I wish I didn’t have such hard core issues in the kitchen. Cooking has always seemed like such a wonderful way to live.

Don’t make me ride in on my broomstick and swat you with a wooden spoon, MSB. Why the issues? What’s not to love about being in the kitchen?
