    We’re grilling steak tonight, and it’s -20 celcius out … which is like 9 degrees farenheit. So call us crazy too! LOL!

    Sun: Lo Mein Pork
    Mon: T-bones and mash
    Tue: Chilli con carne
    Wed: Veal/Sausage/meatballs/potatoes traditional ragout
    Thu: Cheese lasagna
    Fri: Meat pie

    And the leftovers make some fine lunches throughout the week 🙂

    …and I have to thank you for giving me the idea of planning the weeknight meals over the weekend (and thus doing the groceries accordingly); it’s been a life saver!

    Next weekend starts Mardi Gras and I’m not sure how many people will be in town for the fun… Or how warm/cold it will be. Makes it a little tough to plan.

    Sun: Baked Ham
    Mon: chicken-spinach enchiladas
    Tues: Chili & beans (I cook them separately, in their own pot. Then people can add beans to their preference.) with g/f cornbread
    Weds: Ham curry
    Thurs: leftovers
    Fri: Boy Scout Eagle Banquet
    Sat: Mediterranean beef ragout (I have zucchini to use)

    And ditto to Christine’s thanks. 🙂

About Me

Angela James

There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.

However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!

Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.


Find Me Here

First, I blog once or twice a week at theCarina Press blog, talking about the job, the authors, the books and other things Carina Press. And, of course, you can always find me on Twitter. Or Facebook, if you prefer (mostly the same content, one feeds the other). I also run the Carina Press Twitter and Facebook accounts. Social media, it's where it's at (well, it's where I'm at, anyway).
