Working on something new . . .

on September 13th, 2009 by Shannon


What I’m working on: I’m working on a new story, the plotline of which I’m keeping to myself for right now. Unfortunately, it has an impossible deadline of Tuesday. I want to submit it to the Good Housekeeping Short Story Contest, which is being judged by Jodi Picoult. Grand prize is $3000, and while I’d dearly love the money, even better would be if Ms. Picoult read my story and liked it. Imagine, one of my literary idols appreciating my work. The very idea leaves me so giddy I can barely strike the keys to type! So for now, I will put it out of my head and get back to work. Wish me luck!


What I’m reading:  Neil Gaiman’s “The Graveyard Book.” This is a wonderful piece of literature that I can’t wait to share with my children. I wanted to read it first to be sure that it wasn’t too scary. The opening scene is a little disturbing, what with the scary Jack killing everyone in Bod’s family, but as it moves on, the wonders Bod encounters - being raised in a graveyard and taught by ghosts - temper the fearful parts. This book won the Newberry this year, for those of you who don’t follow these things, and deservedly so. The idea is new and fresh and creepy enough to give you a great case of the shivers. For those of you whose children like to read Goosebumps, give them the Graveyard Book instead, and you’ll feel like they are getting a full nutritous literary experience instead of empty word calories.


What I’m listening to:  Linda Ronstadt.  “Blue Bayou” is one of my all-time favorites, along with “It’s So Easy,” “Poor, Poor, Pitiful Me” and “That’ll be the Day.”  Sort of in a nostalgia mood.


What I’m eating:  I’ve seen other blogs where people tell you what’s on their ipod, or kindle, but since I routinely share my food experiences with anyone who will listen, I’m telling you, too. Last night I finally(!) came up with a nutritious meal that everyone in the family enjoyed. Shocking, I know! And what is this little dish of nirvana, you might ask?  Turkey, broccoli, rice, and cheese. I’ve been making this for years, changing it up, altering recipes, trying to come up with something they will choke down. Last night I did it.  I simmered the turkey in chicken broth, along with onion and garlic. I cooked jasmine rice in broth as well. I sauteed the broccoli and seasoned that with salt, pepper, and garlic. And I made a cheddar cheese sauce (dairy-free, of course) with a roux of Smart Balance and rice flour, then added almond milk and rice cheese, ground mustard, and a splash of white wine. I put everything on the table and let them assemble their own meal, and guess what? They ate everything, even the broccoli, and they liked it.  It’s enough to make a mother smile.  Although in the interest of honesty, I must tell you that Cameron was less impressed with his rice after he drowned it in ketchup, against our better judgment. Apparently, ketchup does not make everything better after all.
