    Tonight – homemade pizza; mushroom and margharita. I put up 8 crusts – we’ll probably use 4 or 5 and I’ll freeze the rest. We’ll have cut up veggies – peppers, carrots, celery.

    Monday – I made (and froze) this great whole wheat bread w/sunflower seeds that I’ll have for breakfast with some butter & salt. For lunch it’ll be veggies and hummus that I made with garlic and parsley, and possibly a squash and bean soup if I’m still hungry, with homemade yogurt. Dinner will be salmon on the grill, with polenta and more yogurt and chives from the garden (the only thing growing right now), and a tomato salad with parsley.

    Tuesday – MOAR SUNFLOWER BREAD. And then the same lunch as Monday. For dinner, DH is in charge – if he went to Costco, it’ll probably be lamb chops.

    Wednesday – Hard boiled eggs for breakfast. The rest of the day is unpredictable till dinner, in which case it’s salmon/polenta again.

    Thursday – repeat Tuesday.

    Friday – repeat Wednesday morning, and then I do a run to the Food Coop to determine the rest of the day/weekend/next week.

      Keira, for the Mexican Casserole, make sure you follow the updated recipe. I had to edit it because Josh had made it the other night (following my recipe) and I realized after the fact I’d left out the taco seasoning, to season the beef with! You can do it without, but it’s not quite as flavorful. Also, I have an excellent recipe for homemade taco seasoning if you want it.

    Angie, I’m glad I came here before making the dish. The taco seasoning was very tasty. I didn’t have time to ask for the recipe of your homemade seasoning, but I’d love to have the recipe so when I make it again, I can use it. Thank you!!

    Dawn, your grapefruit-mint chicken really tickles my fancy. Apples and pineapples are the only fruits I’ve tried in food so far. I recently made carmelized mint corn that was really delicious so I’m primed for mint recipes, if you wouldn’t mind sharing.

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!

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).
