This is a salsa post. I’m talking the kind with tomatoes and onions and jalapenos and cilantro and all that good stuff. I currently have a great big pot of the stuff simmering on the stove, and I have to stay up till it sludgifies so I can stick it in containers and freeze it. (I’m to lazy to go the canning route.) And while I’m waiting for it to cook down, I thought I’d come blog. (I told you my life was boring.)
I’ve been waiting a while for tomatoes to get cheap enough to buy a bunch of them, and finally they did. At this price, I can make a buttload of salsa for a lot less than what it costs to buy the good stuff, and the homemade is LOTS better than the storebought. And I only cut myself once, right at the very end of the chopping portion of the job–cutting oneself while making salsa is Really Bad, because the acid in the tomatoes burns like crazy, and the jalapeno juice isn’t that great either. And I don’t know how anybody can make it without cutting themselves at all…they’re more coordinated than I am.
So, besides the salsa bubbling away in the kitchen, it’s been a good day otherwise. The editor liked my answers to her questions in the revision letter. She liked my idea for the option book, and she liked the thought I had about future books set in Adara. Which means that when it comes time to start the next proposal for Luna, I’ll be writing sexy Victorian steam-punk…
But first I have to finish The Eternal Rose. Which means sitting down tomorrow to do it. Work, work, work.
