November, November.

November is the month for NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month, and NaBloPoMo, National Blog Posting Month. Why did they have to concentrate these activities in November? Is it the N? November is such a busy month. What about March? There’s nothing major going on in March.

I had every intention of doing NaNoWriMo this time around, but with my travel schedule this month it seems unlikely that I’d be able to write 50,000 words by the end. Maybe NaBloPoMo is more realistic. Sadly, that means I should have posted yesterday. We’ll see how much progress I make on either one of these projects. I’m also getting back in to running. Maybe November *is* the month for ambitions or ambitious projects after all.

This morning I woke up early (thanks, fall back day!), went running at the gym, and spent the rest of the day cooking and baking, rather than writing. Here’s what I made today: socca, two loaves of cracked wheat bread, five dozen chocolate chip cookies, one pumpkin pie, and pressure cooker brown rice “breakfast pudding”. Photos and recipes to come this week. I will say that while everything is delicious, I’m particularly proud of the bread and the pumpkin pie. I tried a new pie crust recipe (easy, will share) and a new filling recipe (also easy) and it was definitely a success. I accidentally left an ingredient out of the filling and it was still delicious (no, it wasn’t the pumpkin).
