Steaming Up the Kitchen

Is it already Thursday? The sad part about the holidays is it flies by and everyone starts talking about their New Year’s Resolutions. People like me. To get in enough of the holiday feel, I think I’ll do a repeat of watching Christmas shows before Halloween. Santa doesn’t need to know that my tree went up on the spookiest day of the year.

If I’m in the holiday spirit this weekend, I might even wrap my presents early. Then, it’s off to watch Polish dancers at the European Market. My husband doesn’t know it but he’s getting kidnapped to find more Christmas light displays. Oh yes! It’s a Minnesota winter drive-by.

Can you smell the crock pots steaming up their cold weather stews? I’m going to try another cut of meat. Then, we’ll vote on weather or not it’s better than the chuck roast. I’ve watched too many holiday baking shows, and I want to create some yummy treats but those require exact measurements. Mine have always been a little of this and a little of that – maybe it’s the Korean in me. I guess I should stick to my miniature clay creatures of the real thing. I still bake those fire the clay.

Speaking of cooking. What about a writing prompt for someone who enrolls themselves in cooking school to impress their significant other, only to have them get dumped right after they sign up? They go to their lesson and in walks a very good looking chef ready to give you an individual lesson. Let the kitchen steam begin! Write for 5-10 minutes.

My posts are Monday through Friday.

I’m an author in Minnesota who started out writing and illustrating Children’s books. I’ve published poetry and adult Romance Novels. I created my website and social media to reach out to other writers because the process can be lonely. I wanted to reach out to readers, writers, and those with a dream of finishing “that” novel. I share the advice of other writers and the tools I use to create my stories.
