Heat Wave

As if there weren't enough good things about Nathan Fillion, he now signs books as Richard Castle! I am going to be in Nathan-Heaven!

Have you watched Castle yet? If not, you SHOULD. You can watch online or order the DVDs

Time for a new series to read. So far the few reviews I have read have been favorable

And now, off to order my copy from Amazon so I can get it signed on 10/19
-I'm not obsessed, really!

Chicken Tandoori

It’s not red/orange because you don’t use any food coloring and well, I don’t have a tandoor oven or BBQ. This moist, delicious, and simply NOM recipe has an equally interesting history. There is also an alternative recipe on that site. This is as homemade as you can get without buying the Tandoori sauce from somewhere like Trader Joe's.
Prep Time: 8 hours, 45 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes
Ingredients:1 (3-pound) chicken, cut into serving pieces, skinned and trimmed of all visible fat 1/2 cup to 1 cup plain yogurt (start with 1/2 and add more yogurt to taste.

Today's post is brought to you by the number 9 and the letter "F" - for frantic, frazzled, frenzied, and be-fuddled.

I've been busy with work, my commute is a bit longer, but these are in general good things. The being employed is. I am not ready to join the ranks of the "funemployed". Besides, I'm not sure I know anyone funemployed who also has kids to raise ... but I digress.

Just a quick update on this most auspicious of days - I'm behind on everything personal since I got moved to another department in mid-August. I will eventually find the time to get back to photo processing, blogging on a regular basis and um ... everything else I used to do. My brain and stomach are demanding lunch now (another side effect of this job, I'm up earlier and hungry by noon!). I miss tweeting, and facebooking, and flickring, and going on photoshoots, and all that fun stuff.
In other news, anyone going to see "9" tonight or this weekend?
