Stir-fried Green Beans

I picked the first of my garden green beans today and decided to get creative in the kitchen. Here's the result!

Stir-fried Green Beans

1/2 pound or so fresh green beans
2-3 large cloves of garlic, minced
1 teaspoon garlic chili pepper sauce
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons water

Heat the olive oil in a wok over medium-high heat until hot. Add garlic and green beans. Stir-fry until beans begin to turn bright green. Add water and cover. Steam about five minutes, stirring occasionally. Add garlic chili pepper sauce and toss well. Serve as a side dish or with steamed rice.

Yummy!!!

Summer Vacation???

Remember the days of summer vacation? Not happening. My husband helped our daughter move from her apartment at Purdue to her new apartment at Kent State last weekend--which means I've spent the last week trying to make room for a new bedroom suite since she got our old one. This job has morphed into cleaning the spare room to find space for the desk that's currently in my bedroom and adding more attic floor in the garage for more storage space. On top of that, the garden has decided it needs attention. At least, we're taking a break today to go see the last Harry Potter movie. I'm hoping to get in some writing today, too!

Home Again

I had a terrific time in NYC at the RWA National Conference, but I'm glad to be home. Even after almost twelve hours of sleep last night, I'm still recovering from late nights and early mornings. Good thing it only happens once a year!

This month will be another busy one--a family reunion/vacation at Salt Fork State Park in Ohio, picking up the key for my daughter's new apartment and getting her moved from Purdue to Kent State, keeping up with the garden, and writing, of course :) August looks about the same, with a trip to Colorado and school starting again.

Many thanks to those of you who have bought The Sextet Anthologies Volumes 1 & 2! I'm on the Siren 30-day Bestselling Authors list!!! Volume 3 is due out July 29th, so I should be getting the cover and final edits soon. I'll post the new cover as soon as I get it!

Off to write some more!
