and wine too!
Thanks again to Ellie Krieger and The Food You Crave. Tonight I made the Lamb Stew with Orange. Let me just tell you, it had a lot more than oranges. Among other things: chickpeas and red wine. On top of that, it was a one-pot wonder, as opposed to a one-hit wonder I suppose. Anyway, the wine was a highlight, because that means I have to finish the bottle. I chose Sterling Merlot and was quite pleased.
I’m sorry to say that it isn’t really that photogenic, which is probably why there wasn’t a picture in the book.
In other news, I just finished reading My Sister’s Voice by Mary Carter. It was excellent and I’m not just saying that because we went to elementary school together. Really, I’m not. However, I did buy it last year because a mutual friend posted it on facebook. It seemed interesting and one of the main characters is a Deaf artist. I worked with Deaf students for a while, so it’s a subject I find interesting. hence, I added it to my pile. Then a few month’s ago my Aunt Penny mentioned she was reading this book about twins and she told me the name. I said, hmm, that sounds familiar. who wrote it? Mary Carter, she says. To which I shouted, I went to school with her! seriously, though, it was an interesting tale with some very funny parts and an ending that I didn’t see coming. To me, that’s a recipe for a great book. I will definitely add Mary’s other books to my pile.
