Chocolate truffles on Sunday

Hooray--Cooks Illustrated has finally published a book of light recipes! I want it!

I'm debating whether or not to make chocolate truffles today--I probably won't. We usually have to delay our Valentine's Day celebrations until the weekend, so maybe I'll make some then.

Except that Tom Raworth is reading at UCSD this Thursday, and then there's a "woo hoo Tom" party on Saturday, and another reading Saturday evening--Stephanie Young and Eileen Myles. I'm glad that there are some events down/over here, tho the hanging out in and around events is sadly a major geographical challenge--cars, driving, etc.

If you have some extra money and don't want to use it to by some international real estate or you rightly have other concerns, then you might consider either a) spending it on art or at your local independent book store or b) donating to RAINN.

"I think she will feel... ashamed," says alp. "And i think she will -- she will want to get rid of us."

"No, she won't!" says Rachel. "Lorraine loves us!"
