October Reading List

yes, i know November is almost over. I just completely forgot!

1-64 Ascend Trylle #3 - Amanda Hocking (10/9) - free/gail loan
2-65 Death Masks - Jim Butcher (10/11) - free/library
3-66 Blood Rites - Jim Butcher (10/21) - free/library
4-67 Kiss the Dead - Laurell K Hamilton (10/27) - free/library
5-68 Time Untime - Sherilyn Kenyon (10/30) - free/library

ok so was ok, but the ending was too happy. Someone should have died.

Death Masks was actually a re-read, i'd forgotten which Dresden book i was on and picked it up again. This one is great. I miss Shiro already. Blood Rites was GREAT! yes, caps. I love these books, once you get past the second one they're fantastic.

Kiss the Dead....Really LKH? really? Affliction better be worth it, or i might just stop reading these books..nah, probably not. But they're kinda ridiculous now.

Time Untime. Kenyon NEVER disappoints. ever. I have loved every single book of hers i've read, even the CIA sniper romance novels...weird but true. This one walks a little more away from the Greek Dark Hunters and explores OTHER cultures trying to end the world, the Mayans. Yup..the End of the Mayan calendar. and Ash is in it, so it's all good.

Oh look! A recipe!

Some of the husbeast's favorite meals are two things. Simple. And vegetarian.

This last meal plan was cheap and easy. And needed to use a lot of stuff sitting in the pantry and the freezer! I had a bag of frozen mixed broccoli and cauliflower. And two boxes of rice a roni long grain wild rice (my favorite!).

Roasted Parmesan veggies

Dump the veggies in a big bowl (I thawed mine first)
Add a drizzle of olive oil
About a tablespoon of lemon juice
Minced garlic (I used about a tablespoon)
Salt and pepper
A teaspoon of red pepper flakes
1/4 - 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Toss really well and dump onto an aluminum foil lined baking sheet (mine had a lip)

Cook at 425 degrees (preheated) for 20 minutes, stirring every 5 or so.

I served mine with the rice. It was nummy!
