My Favorite Thanksgiving Recipe

Since it's Thanksgiving I'm going to post my favorite Thanksgiving recipe. I need to think of a cool name for it, but for now it's called Berry Sweet Potato Bake:

Combine: 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup oats
Cut in: 1/3 cup butter until mixture is coarse crumbs
Toss 1 cup of the crumbs with 2 or 3 cubed sweet potatoes and 2 cups fresh cranberries. Put in a greased casserole dish and top with remaining crumbs. Bake at 350 degrees for about 35 minutes.

You need a good topping to sweet potato ratio. Maybe this should be called Oatmeal-Cranberry Cookie Sweet Potatoes.

No matter what it's called, it's mackin'.

Not Feeling It

I haven't felt like posting lately. Maybe it's because I was gearing up for promotion of my book and now I get an extra year. Maybe it's because I was trying to do nano and found that it wasn't my style. Or maybe it's because I have been waiting on a requested rewrite. I don't know.
I did write a new story yesterday. It's about a mouse and a seed. Sounds original, eh?

A Toast to Winter

Today is the first day of winter. At least it's the first day of my winter. It's been snowing and blowing since last night. Here we go...

Sliding down the driveway in the car, wheee! Walking miles when the snow gets too thick to drive through, yay! Freezing my butt off...today I'm wearing a long sleeve shirt, a sweatshirt, a long, thick sweater, and Uggs(pants too of course); and that's in the house.

So here's a toast to winter. Fill up your eggnog and raise a glass. Hey, I see you over there! No spiking, we've got at least five months to go.

Winter, you are beautiful, fun, and we love you, but why do you have to be so hard?
