I don't have anything fannish to give you, but I haven't posted in a while, so. Here, have some recipes. All three are vegan, and totally delicious.

Turns out, I've completely lost control of my [ profile] dysfuncentine fic. About a quarter of the way in, it just started writing itself, and what's going on now isn't even on a nodding acquaintance with what I'd had in mind when I first sat down to write it. The pairing is the same, but everything else went right out the window. Suprise! emo fic for the fail. /o\

Also, it's acting like it needs more words, which... I do not have time for, since it's due tomorrow, and everything.

I went to Whole Foods for breakfast, and had some amazing cauilflower hash with onions, sliced carrots, and fake cheese. I'm not big on fake cheese as a rule, but in this it worked nicely. I'm on my third cup of coffee; hopefully I can translate the caffiene into getting this fic finished.

I got my [ profile] hp_beholder assignment yesterday. I'm half-excited and half-terrified, so. We'll see how that goes.

Dear God, someone needs to tell me that Chipotle isn't exactly diet food. Just because they offer vegan burritos doesn't mean I should eat three of them in two days. So very yummy, though. Also, kind of messy. The one I ate just now fell apart before I'd really even opened it, and I ended up holding the foil like a platter and shoveling burrito bits into my mouth by hand.

Also, the farmer's market that sets up outside my work on Saturdays now has four -- four! -- vendors who deal entirely in vegan junk food. One guy sells hummus and pita, and another guy sells various kinds of dips, sauces, and pestos, and yet another guy sells a variety of stuffed flatbreads, and also there's a girl who sells cookies, cakes, fudge, and brownies.

I can already see my plans for weight loss domination swirling down the pipes.


In other news, I somehow managed to get my [ profile] sirius_black fic finished over the weekend!

Oddly, that wasn't how I expected things to turn out. I signed up for [ profile] sirius_black and [ profile] dysfuncentine a couple of days apart, and when I got the final prompts, I really thought I'd end up writing [ profile] dysfuncentine first. My premise for that is a little more straightforward, and also the deadline for [ profile] sirius_black is nearly four weeks longer.

As for [ profile] dysfuncentine -- I'm about 400 words in, and it's already shitty, shitty crackfic. I'm not sure if the problem is the pairing -- it's one I haven't written in yonks -- or if the problem is just me in general. I either write ridiculous, slapstick, pie-in-the-face comedies, or the one where everyone is flat-out miserable because I've laid the angst on with a trowel. What I'm trying to do with this fic requires a delicacy I really just don't have.

My mother has the heat turned up so high I feel like I'm sitting in a furnace. UGH.

eat your greens.

One of my numerous New Year's Resolutions is to eat out less and rely less on pre-packaged foods. Thusly, I've been cooking quite a bit over the last week. I know it's not exactly salad season, but I've been making a lot of salads, anyway. Mainly because they're so easy to throw together, but also, it's terribly hot here.

Here, have some salad recipes. All of them are vegan.
