Because of some computer problems I don’t quite understand (that’s what the IT geeks are there for), my last editing project went slightly over deadline and prevented me from blogging. I finally released the manuscript to the publisher yesterday and – as always – there’s a certain sense of loss that accompanies the relief of finishing a job. It’s much like saying goodbye at the end of a holiday romance.
Said computer glitches mean that I didn’t get email updates of posts on my friends’ blogs done between around 6pm on Saturday and around midday on Monday (GMT), so I am having to work my way around trying to catch up.
Tandy’s seasonal ingredient challenge of the week is to use pumpkin and squash. She didn’t specify what kind of squash, so I used butternut. I’d been tantalized when I read that she was cooking short ribs on Friday night, so I went out and bought some too; I was very keen to try out NoMU’s Cajun Rub and made a hearty stew and turned the leftovers into a really good soup (which I forgot to take a picture of).
