Beer Brined Corned Beer Sliders with Pickled Cabbage Slaw
I just turned my completed book into my publisher.
One hundred recipes, along with sixty-five photos, are now out of my hands. You’d think I’d be relieved, so did I, but I’m worried. I just let go of the summation of 90 percent of my waking hours from the past 4 months. It’s in someone else’s care, and that scares the crap out of me.
I have these momentary panics:
Did I make the pavlovas enough, do the directions make sense?
I say jackass in the book, will people hate that?!
Was I clear about how grateful I am for this, or will I come off as smug?!
I even worry about whether or not you’ll like it, as if I’m just an insecure school girl. I thought I would be relieved and elated, but I’m more anxious than I’ve been during this entire process. I want people to love it, to leave me glowing reviews on Amazon and tell their friends about how much they love it. I hope that happens, but for now, I’m still losing sleep.
For the time being, I have a St. Patricks Day recipe for you. I posted my veggie lovers St Patricks Day offering last week, but this one is about that corned beef we all associate with that Irish Holiday.
So if you will, drink a pint and say an Irish prayer for me and my forthcoming book.
