#bookandlunch 🥪 🥑 📖

Hoping to finish this one today.

ImperfectCJ Beautiful photo! Is that GF bread? 1mo
4thhouseontheleft @ImperfectCJ It is! Udi‘s. Not my first choice for GF bread, but I always keep a bit on hand in the freezer. 1mo
ImperfectCJ @4thhouseontheleft Thought it looked familiar! Trader Joe's Multigrain GF is my not-favorite-but-on-hand. My favorite store-bought is from a local bakery that supplies the Whole Foods in Asheville, NC (or at least it did in 2014). Insight Meditation Center in Barre, MA, also has spectacular GF bread. I got the recipe, but it's for large batches and doesn't scale down well. And so ends my “GF breads of the US“ tour. 🙄 1mo

Sharpeipup Udi‘s is not my favorite either but they‘ve improved the recipe in recent years. 1mo
Sharpeipup @ImperfectCJ add sift gluten free to your GF bread map...it‘s a small batch bakery in Minneapolis 1mo
ImperfectCJ @Sharpeipup Time for a visit to Minnesota! (City Cakes in Salt Lake City is excellent, too. Vegan as well as GF.) 1mo
4thhouseontheleft @ImperfectCJ Which bakery? We‘ve bought delicious GF bread from an Asheville bakery before, Rhu! It‘s available in the grocery delivery coop we belong to, most of the products are from Western NC. (edited) 1mo
ImperfectCJ @4thhouseontheleft I actually don't know the name of the bakery. I just remember that I got it at Whole Foods and it was from NC. There used to be a dedicated GF bakery (in Mooresville, maybe?) that supplied WF, and I think I assumed it was from that one. But we're headed through Asheville again next summer, and now I know to check out Rhu! 1mo
tracey38 That's a pretty fall picture. Your lunch looks yummy. 1mo
4thhouseontheleft @tracey38 Thank you! It was yummy. 1mo

Besides the ones I haven‘t finished in June, here‘s My new #CurrentRead for July. I‘m sure I‘ve read it back in high school centuries ago! 😂 But TBH I don‘t remember much 😆 So it‘s good to read it again with this new edition 📚💚 And I can‘t wait for the movie #DoctorSleep (Love the book!)
Will you be watching the movie?

Jari-chan Truly one of Kings best works! ❤️ 5mo
TrishB Great cover 👍🏻 I hadn‘t realised they were making a Dr Sleep. I‘m not really a film person but I loved the book. 5mo
BooknerdsLife My other current read is 5mo

scripturient I recently bought the same edition because I want to reread the book. I read it in high school as well i.e. what seems like a lifetime ago. :) 5mo
BooknerdsLife @Jari-chan Yes! Love all his older works! I remember being really scared by this one too 😆🙈 5mo
BooknerdsLife @TrishB Same here! I still haven‘t watched the Shinning the movie 😂🙈 But really love the book Dr Sleep & so am curious about it this time 😁 5mo
BooknerdsLife @scripturient Happy reread to you 🙌🏼📚💚 😂😂Hahaaa I‘m sure I‘m much older ...everything from high school are just a bit hazy...kind of a blur to me now 😂😂 5mo
rretzler I read his first several books when they came out and then I think somewhere in HS outgrew the horror genre. I would also like to read Dr Sleep though because I did enjoy The Shining. My favorite King by far though is 5mo
JennyM You have the perfect set up there! 5mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz Hi Eliza! Do you have an email which you download your kindle books? 5mo
scripturient @BooknerdsLife LOL! I know what you mean. 🤣 I‘m 43 so yes, high school is a bit of a blur by now. 🤣🤣 5mo
BooknerdsLife @rretzler Same! I haven‘t read any Kings books for many years til Doctor Sleep and really loved it! Hope you‘ll enjoy it too 🤗 Ah! I have The Stand in my bookshelf for years but too intimidated to read it yet 😆 5mo
BooknerdsLife @JennyM Thank you 😄💕💖 5mo
BooknerdsLife @Jee_HookedOnBookz Hello Jee my sweet friend 🤗💕 How are you doing? Yes I do have a few email add for my Kindle ... here‘s one : eliza.cheung_85dec9@kindle.com 5mo
BooknerdsLife @Jee_HookedOnBookz or does it has to be the one I normally receive my books from? 🙈 5mo
BooknerdsLife @scripturient 😂😂😂 Exactly! 5mo
rretzler Other than the fact that The Stand is a chunkster, it‘s not scary like a lot of his other work. It‘s really more of a dystopian SciFi novel with elements of the supernatural happening mainly in the second half. I‘ve always liked the book, but felt that some of the supernatural stuff could have been left out and the book would have been a perfect dystopian work. 5mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz @BooknerdsLife the one that you get your ebooks ☺️ 5mo
BooknerdsLife @rretzler Hahaa it‘s the size of the book that scares me off reading it 😅🙈That tomb of a book is quite intimidating 😅 5mo

Day 29: #bookandlunch

I rarely ever take pics of food + books, so I decided to throw this edit together instead. Watermelon is my favorite fruit, and it‘s definitely a great representation of summer! ☀️🍉

#30junebooks @howjessreads #bookandlunch I went with a book on how to make lunch for this one. Because my real lunch wasn‘t healthy today and no one wants to see that...

#BookAndLunch #30JuneBooks

The soup is parsnip and apple, which I made after reading about the characters eating it in Louise Penny's The Nature of the Beast.

robinb Yummm! I love reading what my characters are dining on! 😊👍🤣 5mo
JennyM Delish! 5mo
Cathythoughts I love parsnips... looks divine 5mo
CarolynM @robinb @JennyM @Cathythoughts It is pretty good, if I do say so myself - I used the BBC Food recipe😋 5mo

#bookandlunch I'm loving this book! A memoir by an English professor who retired due to ME and was saved by books. She just wrote "I read it in Italy - I had plenty of time since I had to take every other day off from the rigors of the tour we were on." ? I've never seen this aspect of my life with chronic illness in a book! That every other day life tho.

jb72 Interesting. I‘ll have to give it a look. Being born disabled has been a difficult road. 6mo

Summer lunches typically look like this. We did stop reading to talk to each other for a few minutes. 😃 #bookandlunch

Caterina How's the weather for y'all? It's barely raining here, but I hear there are flash floods and tornado watches near y'all. 6mo
4thhouseontheleft @Caterina It‘s been raining buckets! There is a fair bit of flooding in the region, and they just issued a flood warning for the nearby lake. We don‘t live in a flood zone, so we‘re not personally in any danger. My daughter is outside enjoying the brief respite before the next ⛈ rolls in. 6mo
Caterina So glad y'all are safe from the flooding! ❤️ Hope you get lots of cozy reading in. 😊 6mo
