Total Twitter Turkey Time!

So, I’m planning to make a turkey dinner today. I wouldn’t say with all of the trimmings (which here in Newfoundland often includes salt meat and a side of turnips), but I’ll mash some potatoes, do stuffing (stovetop) and attempt gravy. Why am I telling you this? Because I find cooking boring, so I’m going to tweet the whole thing, starting now. If this turns out to be a disaster, at least there will be entertainment value in it, right?

Feel free to follow along, tweet back with advice or snarky-yet-good-natured comments, and enjoy what will almost certainly devolve into a prime opportunity for schaudenfreude. Someone might as well enjoy this…

(No, this is not my first turkey, but it’s like a wedding. SOMETHING always goes wrong.)

I’m @kate_sparkes, and I’ll use the hashtag #turkeydinner, unless someone has a better suggestion, and only when I remember to use it.

TO THE COOKATORIUM!

Sunday ROW80 Update: Turkey Soup Edition

Good (whatever time of day it is), everyone! I hope you’re having a great weekend, whatever that means to you.

It’s time for my ROW80 update. I got a bit of work done this morning, but got sidetracked by this:

I cooked a turkey a few days ago, and yesterday (for the first time ever), I made soup stock from the carcass. We’ll see how this goes…

Anyway, back to my goals! Since one project is off with readers (can you feel me trying to emotionally detach myself from it?), I’m working on finalizing the outline for the next book. So far, so good… I won’t be working while we’re away, but when we get back the goal will be 1500 words a day. I guess I won’t be posting updates while we’re gone, either. Weird.

As far as reading goals go, I’ve started alpha reading an interesting story, an another book made me burn something I was cooking. Silly book.

I’m off to try that soup, now. Stop by the link and see what all of the other people participating in this Round of Words are up to!
