That looks delicious. I can't wait to try it.

Tip for the adobo can leftovers: tear of a number of squares of saran wrap, divide the can into equal portions of 1 pepper and some sauce, placing each in the center of some saran wrap. each piece of wrap can then be lifted at the four corners and twisted shut. place all of them into a ziploc bag and throw them in the freezer. whenever you need a pepper, pull one out and soak the saran wrap in hot tap water (i use a small bowl) for ~10 minutes and you're good to go.

Mmmmm...my mouth is watering! By the way, we're having your Shepherd's Pie for the third time tonight. Can't get enough of it!

Great tip, Jason! I think I'll do the same with my leftover tomato paste and broth! I've heard an ice cube tray works well for freezing broth.

Kim, for broth, I use a bunch of 1 cup containers and freeze them in that. I can't recommend enough making your own broth. It is soooooo easy. Here's an inelegant way that chefs would probably hate but I think is just fine: Take the leftover carcass/pieces from a rotisserie (roasted) chicken [this makes a good dinner!] put in a big stock pot (12-16 quarts), fill with cold water so it's covered, if you have some carrots or an onion or celery (or all of them) lying around, toss those in the pot, cover pot, place on stove at the lowest heat setting you have, and come back in 4-6 hours. Don't stir it.

Then you just get some tongs to pull all the big pieces out and strain the rest through a fine mesh (throw some cheese cloth in there if you have it). Let that sit for a bit, skim the fat (not cause I'm fat-phobic, just cause it gives you more flexibility) and freeze in 1 cup containers. Winter's a nice time to do this cause you can let the containers cool way down outside.

It tastes 1000x better than canned stock.

Total labor: less than 30 minutes.

Or, just use water: http://blog.ruhlman.com/2008/09/in-defense-of-w.html

The only problem with making stock is once you do it once, you'll want to do it forever.

Congratulations Corey. I remember feeling very similiar when finishing my first novel. I also write late at night and had no one to call. Instead of calling someone, I wrote about how fantastic it felt in my journal. I still look at the entry when I need some spirit boosting.

I look forward to reading your book.
