Yes, The Eggplant Thing Is A Real Book I Actually Bought.

Yesterday was the local library's big (well, big-ish; it's a small library) Friends of the Library book sale. As always, I told myself I was going to be restrained, and mostly just look for stuff that was already on my wishlist, and, as usual, I left with a big pile of books I had no intention of buying, anyway. There's just nothing like a $2-a-bag price tag to make you suddenly convinced that if you don't go home with a copy of something called Alone in the Kitchen with an Eggplant, you will somehow regret it for the rest of your life.

Well, at least I can say that my books acquired total for the year is still smaller than my books read total. So far. I did intend to help that along by spending the rest of the day reading, but I was so tired from getting up at noon to buy books after working all night that I had trouble keeping my eyes open. Ah, well. I have the rest of the year to spend working on it, right?


  1. Catchy title. However, I don't need more recipes in the "cooking for one" category. What would really be useful for us single folk is a grocery store that will sell you just one carrot or one stalk of celery.

    1. I'm not sure it has actual recipes, so much as it's just a bunch of people talking about food. Which normally does not interest me that much, but the title was so much fun! And how often does talk about food involve talking about eating by yourself, as some of us regularly do?

      I have seen large carrots sold loose and individually. I almost never actually use up a whole package of celery before it goes all limp and unappealing, though.
