First sub in a long time

It's been a while since I submitted anything, but I just submitted the postcard fiction "Don't Wake Up!" I think having a low word count limit (200 words) helped me realize that I could do it. Plus, I already had something in the files that I could rework.

I had hoped to also sub another story to an SF humor anthology... but those stories must be at least 4,000 words, and I was starting with something not much longer than 1,000 words. That deadline's past, so I'll just think of other places for that story.

Big stir fry

The tuna and vegetable stir-fry from 1000 Classic Recipes has lots of veggies! I think I'll get more than 4 servings out of this meal.

This is close to a favorite. I think I just need to double the sauce (fresh-squeezed orange juice, orange zest, terriyaki sauce, sherry, and corn starch). OK, the recipe calls for fish sauce, but I was out and substituted terriyaki sauce. And I might consider marinating the fish in the sauce before cooking.
