Food for the Writer's Soul
I was thinking about NaNoWriMo today and wondered, what goodies should I stock-pile as incentives during November?
White tea? Definitely.
But mostly, I love rewarding myself by spending money on ingredients for a fancy meal. Today, I discovered a meal that doesn't cost a lot and is easy to make. And I wish I could eat it continuously without getting full, it's that good.
Cumin-Spiced Chicken with Chunky Tomato Sauce
Creamy Squash Risotto
I used Cub brand cooked squash 'cause I couldn't find frozen butternut squash and it still tasted good. I also used 5-minute pre-cooked rice so it didn't take me as long to heat things up in the microwave.
Husband, friends, and family: If you want to make my day, cook me this. :)
I'm going to use it as word-count motivator during November as a reward for reaching a certain word goal.
If you have a favorite way of rewarding yourself for making your goals during NaNoWriMo, or for writing in general, share in the comments! I'd love to hear them.
Looking forward to tomorrow's lunch of leftovers! :)
