As is true most of the time at the end of a work day at the library, I am cold and hungry. Cold because the stacks kept cool for the preservation of books, and hungry...well because I don't do well if I can't eat something every hour or so.
So I thought that I might share with you two discoveries that I've made recently. One is that I really love brusselsprouts. Tell you what...they're delicious, like cabbage but less likely to reap havoc on your belly.
I discovered a very delicious thing to do to my chicken breasts. Now, I profess to hate chicken, that's because it is what I can afford to eat and I get bored of it. However the other night I just pan fried a chicken breast with coarse mustard smeared over it and a touch of soysauce splashed on. Tasty tasty meal (I also had brussel sprouts)
I also may have gone on about my favorite soup that I crave often. It's Tom Yum soup, however some tom yum soup is too sweet, so you have to be careful. I fake it sometimes by adding rice vinegar to chicken stock that I have cooked chicken, shrimp, snow peas, and some other veggies in with hot pepper. This is good, but just adding vinegar can make your tummy grumble. They probably make it sour with lemon grass.
Aside for being hungry things are all quite the same here. I have about one audition a week. Work is the same as ever (though we're doing a little sleuthing for Juan Diego Florez, which is tremendously cool). I'm singing a bunch at the synagogue, which is always quite nice. So yeah. No news here...
(oh except for that the CD I was going to send you all for Christmas is finally approaching completion!)
