I suck at the food pr0n too...

Sometimes I wish I could write the yummy delicious food porn, but then realize that I made my characters vampires, or vegetarians (so much for writing about the scorpions-on-a-stick or adventures in eel-cooking). Gah. But then I realize it would all just come out like this:

Last night's dinner: Some random fish thing

Ingredients:

  • fresh trout fillet (one per person)
  • cooking oil
  • olive oil, lemon juice, soy sauce, ginger, red and black pepper (mix and marinade the fish in it for a few minutes)
  • a bunch of fresh spinach (wash and trim this first)
  • cooking oil, salt, garlic (chop into chunks and put in the oil)
  • bread or rice or something

Heat oil in pan. Add the trout fillets and pour "marinade" over it. Cook on medium heat for 6-7 minutes on each side. Add a bit of water as needed. Heat oil in other pan. Add the spinach. Cook on high heat for about 5 minutes (stirring frequently) until done. Serve with the bread or rice or whatever. Await appreciative reaction.

"Fish! Again!? Ewwww!"

"I hate this supper!"

"Remmie! OFF! No stealing food!"

"Can I have macaroni and cheese?"

Um. Yeah. Maybe I'll try writing my paranormal erotica/romance again. (But not the one with the sweet cuddly tentacle rape. The whole "Sex with everyone in a 10' radius" area attack is just...words fail me.) So I have this angel/demon thing I wanted to do, but then I keep getting distracted with random thoughts, like, "Ok, so the angels are all naked except for their robes of Light. So what does that look like exactly!?" and "Just how perverted am I for thinking Brigitte Lin is soooo hot in that scene where she's being tortured in that movie that I've watched too many times and how can I rip off that scene so it works in my story?" Well, it's something to do before NaNo. (I'm going to try to write the Shambhala romance during NaNo...which is just over a month away!)
