#Fridaydinner #booksandfood #booksandbooze #grittycomestodinner

Slow going with this book. Not enjoying it -
But rather than bailing, wanting to see the ending.

Crazeedi I'm thinking thumbs up for the pizza though ! Looks yummy! 2mo
kspenmoll @Crazeedi You predicted correctly; pizza yummy, book meh...not so good. 2mo

TheNerdyProfessor @Bklover Dinner is at 5:30! We always make way too much because those uncooked noodles never quite look like enough food 😂 10mo
Bklover Oh yay! I know what you mean - I always make way too many noodles. 10mo

The Eustace Diamonds | Anthony Trollope, John Sutherland, Stephen Gill
post image

It‘s, ‘The Eustace Diamonds‘, this evening with a side of homemade chicken fried rice & freshly baked croissants. On cold winter nights, cooking/baking is my absolute favourite. I‘ll usually put on a podcast or audiobook whilst clattering around the kitchen, & I find any stress instantly melt away. After dinner (& a movie), I‘ll finish up the evening with, ‘Magic for Marigold‘ by L. M. Montgomery.

My last thai dinner in a while coupled with a re-read of the interesting biography of Maya Angelou.


Samplergal I‘m listening to this atm. So good. I‘d never read it before. 1y
hilded I agree, it‘s excellent. Although some parts are really tough to read. I have only read this one, so want to read the rest of her biographies as well at some point @Samplergal 1y
batsy So very good, but I agree—difficult to read, in parts. 1y
Reviewsbylola That looks so delicious!! 1y
hilded It was 😋 @Reviewsbylola 1y

I am hooked to this book.

It‘s my day off and I‘m on the edge of maybe getting a cold and the best cure for a cold is JOOK. Korean rice porridge to the rescue.

DivineDiana Glad you‘re being proactive! 👍🏻 1y

Jude the Obscure | Thomas Hardy
post image

I started this fine Saturday with lofty goals:

-yard work
-prepare elaborate dinner for my kids
-finish The Bear and the Nightingale

It is now almost 10 pm, my yard and house are in the same condition, I‘m eating takeout Mongolian beef literally over the sink, and have not opened Bear.

I have read 22 (and counting) issues of Jude the Obscure though. 🤷🏻‍♀️

I‘m a #SerialReader failure. 😂

Liz_M What a perfect day! 2y
Readerann Ha! I‘ve had the same ‘issue‘ with Serial Reader! 😂 And let me add that I love Thomas Hardy... (edited) 2y
sprainedbrain @Readerann this was my third Hardy and I‘ve loved them all, so I think it‘s safe to say I do, too! 2y
VSAtkinson @sprainedbrain I‘m hopeless with Serial, too. 2y

Kids are gone so I'm finishing off my holiday by reading the last couple chapters and putting back an Atlantic Canada must try - Donair Poutine!!!
Not pictured: The ice cold beer you have to have with this gravy smothered awesomeness 😍 Trust me, I have one cracked 😉

Shemac77 Atlantic Canada; I‘m Nova Scotian! Donair poutine is delicious! 2y
CSeydel 🤤🤤🤤 2y
FantasyChick @Shemac77 Me too!!!! Actually, now that I think about it, I think donair poutine is really just a NS thing lol. We have some great ideas! 2y
Earlene Shouldn‘t it be donair sauce instead of gravy? Either way it looks yummy. (edited) 2y
Leftcoastzen Want that! 2y
