But I find it hard to list. I have had periods devoted to Agatha Christie, Ed McBain, Enid Blyton, Ernest Hemingway, Erich Maria Remarque...
But I also enjoy Curtis Sittenfeld, Dave Eggers, Jeffery Eugenides (the foreword to his collection of love stories is among the most heart breaking things I've ever read), Nick Hornby, Sarah Waters. There are so many and I am deeply grateful. Their words, their work have enriched my life in so many ways.

I am always looking for/thinking about recepies without meat. Here's one I came up with earlier this week and the great thing about it was that even the kids loved it.
It goes something like this:
Parboiled broccoli tossed into a sauce made of soured cream (28%fat at least)and spices/herbs (I used home made veggie stock, lemon zest, salt and black pepper). Mix the sauce with pasta and sprinkle with roasted sunflower seeds and fresh cut basil.
