I wish I had clever things to say about the long holiday weekend. I cooked a lot. I haven’t felt like I’ve had a lot of time to cook lately, so that was a nice thing. I learned to make cranberry chutney, honey roasted root vegetables, pumpkin dumplings, acorn squash gnocchi, and I managed to successfully make the disaster cheesecake recipe. It’s gorgeous, and delicious. I’m definitely keeping that one around. I shared a lot of good food with a lot of good people, which is easily one of the best things a person can do with their time.

And I finished my first draft of Shuteye #6, AND I made it all the way to the end of Wawku shrine in Okami. I haven’t beaten Lechku and Nechku quite yet. So I’m feeling pretty productive.
