The Whole Enchilada

Yesterday was the first chilly day in months. It was finally cool enough to use the oven and not regret it the rest of the day. So, I made enchiladas from scratch. This was a first for me and it was a success. Next time, I'll send out a dinner invite on enchilada night.

As the dish bubbled in the oven and I washed the dishes with warm suds, I was thinking about writing. I had a good writing week... Beyond this little blog, I have a new piece that will hopefully be ready soon. Cooking is about adding and mixing ingredients. For me, writing has become more about when to subtract - words, ideas, whole pages... It's not about revealing the whole enchilada... It's about arranging the dishes.

Tomorrow is a busy day, tonight I'm lighting a fire.
