I worked very hard today on buying books for work--it's so time consuming.   Nonfiction titles for now; I'll work on fiction again at some point.

Another Julia Child recipe tonight!  Bouef A La Catalane--a stew made of beef, rice, onions and tomatoes.  It was delicious, but it took 3 1/2 hours to make.  I didn't mind, though, as the process of cooking was what I wanted.  It went well with some green beans from this week's produce box .  I was a little concerned, since they were so big, but a little extended cooking time made them tender and tasty.

Checks! You posted pictures of food when I'm hungry! That does look reeeeally good though.

*must make rice for dinner tonight*

Hope your rice was as yummy as mine was! And, leftovers tonight, so yay.

That does look good. Produce box! I should get one of those except I don't think I could ever eat it all. And I don't know how to cook half the vegetables out there. But other than that, it would go splendidly.

It's definitely too much for one or even two. I end up giving some of it away, usually. It's nice, though, they send along recipes for many of the things in the box, and it's forced me to try some new things. Plus, it includes fruit, which is really nice. I can skip a week any time it has too many things I don't like in it.

I do think it's increased my veggie intake, which was the whole point of ordering it.
