Just a few little notes about what’s on my playlist, my nightstand, and my stove these days.
On my playlist: I’ve been slowly listening to this great interview with Glennon Doyle Melton on the Beautiful Writers podcast. I stumbled on Glennon’s blog years ago and always appreciate her ability to have these amazing no-nonsense, honest conversations about relationships and success and failure and all the highs-highs and low-lows. She’s really, really good at describing the messy parts of life in a way that makes you feel heard and understood and not alone. This podcast is full of all that.
On my nightstand: I’m moderating a fabulous panel about writing romantic fiction at the James River Writers Conference in October (It’s the 14th-16th! You should come!). In preparation, I’ll be reading some of the panelist’s books. Up first, Sarah MacLean’s NO GOOD DUKE GOES UNPUNISHED. Super excited!
On my stove: Looking for something different to do with quinoa (or something to do with it at all)? I love this recipe from Minimalist Baker for seasoned, baked quinoa. It’s really great as taco filling, as mentioned in the recipe, but it’s also excellent over lettuce and topped with salsa and crushed tortillas. I used this great frozen, pre-cooked quinoa that can be reheated in the microwave, which cuts down the time involved. Yum!
Now it’s your turn! What can’t you stop listing to? What book can’t you put down? What the best thing you eaten recently? I would LOVE to hear all about it in the comments below!
