We are still freezing our tushies off here in Oregon (mostly because it is a damp, wet, soggy cold), but there are some definite signs of spring around my house. Here they are, in no particular order:
- Daffodils, Crocuses (Croci?), and the hot pink Hyacinth I need to replant because it bugs me so close to my red front door.
- Household projects including ripping out old carpet and sanding/refinishing a beautiful wood floor. (Should have done that years ago.)
- I’m dreaming of summer. (Something I only allow myself to do after Equinox, TYVM.)
- I’m thinking of publishing an Official Ripple Trilogy Cookbook.
Yes, you heard right. As if the Space Trilogy, Ballet and Goblin Standalone, and Greek Novel currently in varying stages of development weren’t enough, I’ve almost decided to write down all those recipes for the food that gets mentioned in the Ripple Trilogy. I mean, come summer, with fresh tomatoes in the garden, I’m going to want Will’s salsa recipe, no? (Although I probably won’t use a Serrano pepper)
(That’s a loaf of Will’s Sourdough Bread. With edits of Unfurl in the background.)
So what do you think? Would you like to see a recipe from your fave character or two of the series? (Please don’t pick Sir Walter. I dread to think what was considered yummy in the 14th century! Oh, wait, didn’t he make a cassoulet? *runs to check in Chameleon* Why, yes, he did!)
Time to whip out your copies of Rippler, Chameleon, and Unfurl. What food did you read about that you would like to see a recipe for? Enter your requested recipe below for a chance to win something fun, and signed, that I’ve never given away before. (Hint: I went browsing on one of those online “We print your images on Stuff” sites and found something I couldn’t resist.) This giveaway will be US unless I get more than twenty five entries. At that point I’d be open to shipping this item international . . .
Hugs and Hyacinths,
