So. Tired.  
I actually finished chapter two on SBX4. Go me. 2700 words, which isn't a LOT, but it's not bad, particularly for my brain being all gooey and tired. Then I read Michele Hauf's GOSSAMYR, so it's been a nice quiet evening.

Ok, the truth is, the only real reason I have for making this post is to keep track of my ytd wordcount.

Well, that and to mention that Ted made honey-dijon marinated pork chops and some sort of rather exotic mashed potatoes that involved yogurt and leeks and cabbage for dinner. It was really good.

ytd wordcount: 142,500

Yay writing! 2700 words is still quite a few words!

And your dinner sounds nummy. I may have to try the yogurt thing in mashed potatoes. (I've been using Laughing Cow Garlic & Herb and fat-free sour cream to good effect)

Ted got both those recipes out of the WW cookbook. I can give you them if you want, or you can probably find 'em on ww.com if I found their proper names. :)

Go Ted! :)

I'll look for 'em by ingredient/name at some point if I'm feeling adventurous. :)

They have soooo many recipes I haven't tried yet.

I'm mildly amused that you proclaim mashed potatoes with leeks and cabbage "exotic" when you're living in *Ireland*, which is the home of all things potato-leek-cabbage. The yogurt, I'll admit, is quite daring, but the rest? Sounds suspiciously like colcannon to me... :)

Yeah, that's what it's called.

Ah, Michele Hauf's GOSSAMYR...I liked that one. I didn't necessarily agree with her version of the fairy world, but then I didn't grow up knowing the actual stories about fairies. I just saw pictures and knew what they were called, so I have quite a different impression of them than is probably accurate, historically speaking. But since they're mythical beings, I don't care if I'm wrong. Anyway, I liked that one. I had bad dreams where I was popping colorful balloony, bubbly things afterwards, though.
