Novel by Emma Donoghue, published in 1995. It's about a girl in Ireland who goes to University and rents a flat with a lesbian couple. The story follows her relationship with them, and her transition to this new, independent life.

In my opinion, this book was well written, but the story seemed far too contrived. I must also say the characters were quite believable, and all the Irish slang was fun to read.

A simple method of cooking that is often associated with oriental cooking in which you quickly fry small amounts of food in a large pan over very high heat while constantly stirring. Often performed in a wok, but a large skillet or pan will work also.

Generally done by pre-heating the pan/wok with a tablespoon or two of cooking oil in it. After the pan is heated add some food (like mixed vegetables), stirring them constantly for several minutes (2-5) until they have become crisp and tender. For the cooking oil I’ve generally used vegetable oil or peanut oil, but I imagine others could be used

Usually several items are done this way individually then combined in the pan and finally served over rice.

Hot Oil Warning: You are cooking with hot oil. It Splatters! So for God’s sake, and more importantly your own, don’t stir-fry in the nude!

Don’t forget to wash your hands before cooking. (You didn’t cut off your fingers bias slicing your carrots did you? So I know you are still picking your nose.) Good luck and keep cookin’.
