Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.

Soup sounds intriguing. I like the name of the squash! Congratulations on the story request, and I see on Linked In that it has picked up a prize. With any luck, this will be the year that you will be lauded and recognized as you deserve to be.ReplyDelete
Yes, you would like it! Shall dig up a link, as I found it online.ReplyDelete
Prize? There are various awards and citations for different stories, but I can't even remember one for that one--just the prior pub with Sharyn November's anthology. Maybe I made a mistake in typing up? Of course, not remembering something could be incipient brain rot... Shall check next time I go by LinkedIn. I'm afraid that I rarely go there.
Thanks for the good wish, Robbi. Honestly, I feel like Mr. Bennett when people say things like that--you know, when the narrator (I think--more brain rot) says that after so many years with Mrs. Bennett (the invariable silly Mrs. Bennett) he might not even relish intelligence and reason, should it sprout up. But any increase in readers is always lovely.
Okay, here it is: http://noteatingoutinny.com/2009/10/21/coconut-curry-butternut-squash-soup/ I think that I might use lime instead of lemon next time, and try a smidge of fresh ginger. And I was a little heavier on the curry and cayenne than called for...
Now back to bills and page proofs.
I would like it, but my husband, who hates sweet potatoes and squash, would not. So unless I make it only for myself, I guess I won't be making it! I personally love sweet potatoes, butternut squash, coconut, and the like. He hates watermelon too. Some southerner, hm?ReplyDelete
What an abomination! No sweet taters, no watermelon. Richard, you do not know what you are missing. Must be a guy thing. My guys (the progeny) are relentlessly picky.ReplyDelete
