Probably because I'm old, I don't sleep much. At least during the night.
(What? Those day time naps? No effect...none at all. Nhuh-uh. Shut up).
So to while away the night time hours, I read a lot of blogs; mostly about writing and self publishing. Those aside, and I've mentioned him before, I love Chuck Wendig's Terribleminds
blog. He mostly writes about writing, and his lists of "25 things..." are without peer (25 ways to screw your protagonist, 25 ways to be a happy writer, 25 Plot Twists, etc.etc.). You should read them. Srsly.
Beside thoughts and observations about writing, he occasionally gets around to sharing recipes, and the two today
are about soups. A Saussage-Kale Soup and a Vegetable Soup. I fuckin' love soups. (Mostly because the Bear Cave doesn't have an oven. I've got one of those four burner glass topped cookers that I fuckin' loathe. Seriously, if anything needs a Viking funeral, this piece of shit is it. Really, heat control? This thing has two speeds, OFF and Melt Lead. I really need a Fry-O-Lator, as I am a firm believer that there is little that can't be improved by immersing it in boiling fat. Or adding bacon. Or both. Ummmm, bacon!).
Uh, where was I? Oh, Chuck's blog.
A caveat about his blog however. Chuck's language is....colorful. In his own words, "Chuck Wendig is a novelist, screenwriter and game designer. This is his blog. He talks a lot about writing. And food. And the madness of toddlers. He uses lots of naughty language. NSFW. Probably NSFL. Be advised."
More like, Be afraid...very,very afraid.
But the soups look damn good.
