My house has gone through plenty of change.

Tonight, I had the reigns of metamorphosis in my hands. I took a chance and changed one of my favorite recipes. I replaced the white rice with wild rice in the Stuffed Bell Peppers recipe. I also used one pound of ground pork and no hamburger. I added 1/2 cup of catchup and 1/2 tsp. of garlic salt and chili powder. It tasted great. Without the chili powder and garlic salt the  pork flavor was to sweet for the peppers. Those spices really ‘beefed’ it up.

I finally finished my three month love affair with The Count of Monte Cristo. I miss him and I’m thinking about rereading it immediately! After Dumas put an abrupt end to M. Dantes’s nightly visits to my bed chambers, I picked up a new book, something written by Harry Turdledove. I succeded in reading two paragraphs and felt so spoiled by Alexandre Dumas that I picked out The Three Musketeers instead. I see now why they called him a lady’s man!

I’m reading on The Amazon Kindle 2 and all of the books I read are either free downloads or they are at the most $1.99.  I enjoy the Kindle so much! It allows me to read a book that is normally 1100 pages plus without the pain involved with holding that massive piece of luggage. I understand people who wont get one because of the Fahrenheit 451 syndrome, I too was a bit leery because of that. On the other hand, it is a great way for someone like me to be able to read, it is a great way to save paper, and it is a great space saver because it can hold over one thousand books magazines and news papers.

    I’m not sold on eBook readers, although everyone I know who has a Kindle seems to love it. But what about the Nook?

      I’m going to have to look into the Nook, this is the first I heard of it. My Kindle was a surprise birthday present from an Amazon staffer.. Weird.. ask me about it next time I see you!
