All Clear by Connie Willis
Why I picked it up: It's the sequel to Blackout, by which I mean "They were supposed to be one book, but it got too long," so it's more of a immediate continuation than a sequel, if you know what I mean.
Goodreads Rating: 4/5

I'm finding out that I REALLY like lamb. It's a bit expensive here in SoCal, but it's definitely worth splurging on every once in a while. The thing is, it's really easy to over-cook, as I learned the hard way last time I bought some. But I think that with practice I'm getting better. Last night, with both of us not feeling all that great, I made the following: (I would have waited until I felt better, but I didn't want to put the lamb in the freezer).

Lamb with Rosemary and Port
Roasted Potatoes (the recipe was on the back of the Lipton onion soup box...)
Yellow squash with butter and sugar (There's no recipe for this. I listened to what R. said her grandmother did and tried to replicate it.)

It was REALLY good. I managed to cook the lamb enough to make it safe without completely drying it out, and when the onion-y roasted potatoes sat on the plate in the port/garlic/rosemary combo that had run off the meat... it was delicious.

Cooking while slightly sick: GREAT SUCCESS.
