Evening of cooking and email

I got home yesterday to a very large bunch of fresh vegetables! So, what to do? I started to cook! But wait, what were these veggies? I'd never seen some of them before. To the batcave - vegetarian cookbook! Aha! Chard and fennel! What the hell are those!?

Anyhow, I found a pretty good slow cooker recipe for chard, sauteed some spinach, and made myself a bombtacular salad. Put my latest Amazon bounty into the iTuneser, and ate with Trent Reznor and John Coltrane while catching up on some serious email backloggage.

Books

On the train this morning I finished A Place to Live, a book of essays by Natalia Ginzburg. It was great. Book a week! Yay! Next week I'm either going to read something in Hebrew for the first time in a long time, or maybe not? I'm looking at A Civil Action and Gödel, Escher and Bach, and would like to borrow Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close from jarsofwind whenever we next get a chance to hang out.
