I have been busy with work, so not as much time for other things. Still mourning the loss of the Angelika movie theater, haven't seen any new movies lately. I hear the new Ben Affleck movie is worth checking out, will try to make some time later this weekend. Otherwise have started a new photography class (7 sessions) at Rice University's Continuing Education School. I might have to move from the Thursday (advanced) to the Wednesday (intermediate) class. I am not yet proficient with Photoshop and judging by the class curriculum, practically half the time will be spent on editing and processing. I still need help on the technical aspects of the photo taking process, so will likely benefit more from the intermediate class.
Also cooking quite a bit, just got a new cookbook the other day: Robin Robertson's 'Vegan on the Cheap'. Have tried 4 recipes so far and each of them have been a winner: Moroccan Chickpeas and Couscous (I substituted the required golden raisins with regular raisins); Penne-Wise Peanutty Pasta; Three-Bean Loaf (had some sandwiches with the leftovers just like old-fashioned meat loaf) and Garden Rotini and Chickpea Salad with Inner Goddess Dressing. Used a different type of pasta which I picked up at Whole Foods - made from quinoa and corn. Tasty. And as vegans know, if you eat quinoa more than twice a week you go straight to being an operating thetan Level VII... Just kidding.
