Now that I know what a meme is (thanks Marta and Softdrink!), I think I'll do one.
This is from softdrink's blog and here are the rules:
1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people.
Okay, I'm using the book I finished last night. It's here on my desk at work, and I'm getting ready to return it to the co-worker who loaned it to me.
Bill Buford's Heat (An Amateur's Adventure as Kitchen Slave, Line Cook, Pasta-Maker, and Apprentice to a Dante-Quoting Butcher in Tuscany)
"You recheck your basket: the tortelloni are floating. You go back to the pan and swirl it again - almost ready, looking like a custard. But three more orders come in, you deal with them, and by the time you get back to the pan, just thirty seconds later, the liquid is mottled: still a sauce but a diseased one, very ugly, not something you want to eat."
On another note, I'm really enjoying reading everyone's blogs during this February challenge. I was just blown away by Andasamo's grandmother's paintings - they are so interesting and beautiful.
