It has been more than three years since I wrote a note. I blogged a lot in the mid-aughts, but then acquiesced to the reality that when it comes to writing, I am my biggest and main fan. However, tonight I have a perfectly good reason to write a note. There’s too much snow on the ground, my daily chores are done, and I had a good success in the kitchen this evening. I made chop suey (almost) from scratch, and did it in less than an hour. I know it was a success because Stephen asked for a second helping, albeit smaller.
