November was an insane month, and a big part of that was my decision to participate in my very first NaNoWriMo or National Novel Writing Month. I’ve had so many people tell me I should write a cookbook, and I plan to, but I’ve always wanted to write a fun and frivolous murder mystery and decided this was the event to give me the kick in the pants. I’m happy to say that I’m now over 50,000 words into my novel and though I have more to go, I’ll no longer be trying to get thousands of words a day to meet a deadline. That means I’ll be back to posting more regularly! December is going to be full of affordable edible gifts, holiday dinner dishes and seasonal options. See you Monday!
