Food is a big part of my life - I studied it, I teach it and, of course, I eat it (sometimes way too much of it). So consider this a weekly share of a salad (or soup or ... something healthy) that I'm loving at the moment - plus the book that currently has me hostage.
Consuming: Tasty Raw Corn & Chicken Salad - Leafy green lettuce, shredded carrots, corn kernels (who knew raw corn was sweet), chicken strips (previously grilled), and almond slices (much more was loaded on top before eating). For the salad dressing - there was some homemade stuff in the fridge (the husband does it, not I). Let me tell you - this was beyond delicious!
Reading Incoming Book: Welcome to Bordertown (Borderland #5), Ellen Kushner & Holly Black (Editors). I met the fantastic duo of Holly Black & Ellen Kushner at Book Expo America, and since they had run out of books, they promised to send me one in the mail ... and here it is.
Summary: A shared-universe original anthology series set in an imaginary city in which humans and magical creatures could meet and interact. Bordertown: a city on the border between our human world and the elfin realm. Runaway teens come from both sides of the border to find adventure, to find themselves. Elves play in rock bands and race down the street on spell-powered motorbikes. Human kids recreate themselves in the squats and clubs and artists' studios of Soho.
Thinking: Running 20-30 minutes every day this week has helped me get back into the habit. Over the weekend, I need to tune my bike & get out on the trail a few times a week too.
