Second, I'm working on a post about writing for the Foreign Service. I figure I got a lot of help with my writing, it's only fair that I give back a little. Hopefully it will help other people trying to join the FS.
Third, I am still waiting
Four, I've been cooking new and interesting things lately. I made borscht in early December and it was great, I highly recommend it. Sorry the picture isn't better, but trust me, it was good stuff.
I got an immersion blender and a slow cooker for Christmas, so lots of new goodies are in the plan. I even used the blender to make squash soup. I hadn't eaten squash since I was a kid(and even then, only on pain of death) and I was pleasantly surprised to find that I don't hate it anymore. So of course then I got cocky and tried using the immersion blender instead of a whisk to make cupcakes. Let's just say it ended badly....
That's really about all. Life is pretty quiet these days. I'm working this week and next and then I add classes back in on the 17th. Four more months of class to go.
