I‘m having a hard time getting into the second Percy Jackson book. Someone tell me it gets better?

At least I am enjoying some hot and sour soup on this cold, rainy day! Just battled through crazy parking lots and shoppers to pick up a prescription and rabbit litter. I don‘t think I‘m stepping foot near a shopping complex until January. People are being jerks right now! #booksandlunch

gradcat There‘s something very ironic about the way people behave the closer it gets to a religious holiday, imho.... 5d
LibrarianRyan It does, it just takes a bit. 5d
4thhouseontheleft @gradcat I know, right? 5d

4thhouseontheleft @LibrarianRyan Thanks! That may give me enough boost to sit down and keep reading this afternoon. 😊 5d
Sharpeipup It is a slower read. 5d
gradcat You have a rabbit? That just entered my brain...I just read “litter,” and thought cat. Pictures? 🐰 🐇 ♥️ (edited) 5d
4thhouseontheleft @gradcat Yes! We have 2 🐈 and one 🐇. The rabbit uses a different litter. I‘ll try to tag you in some of my past rabbit posts. 5d
LeahBergen I love Hot and Sour soup! 4d
gradcat I would love to see your bunny. Is it @monalyisha that also has bunnies? Or another Litten? I know I saw some posts when I first joined last year. 🐰♥️🐇 3d
monalyisha @gradcat It‘s me! #rabbitsoflitsy (edited) 3d
gradcat @monalyisha I thought so! You‘re the first person that I knew that had “freely roaming” rabbits in her house! I think they‘re so adorable!! 🐇😍🐰 3d

Here we go again. I suspect that I am going to get pulled in, but that is not a bad thing. I am glad I have a strong stomach. #booksandlunch #currentlyreading #thrillerseries #Amishfiction ⚠️😳

Lazy day lunch with a GF English muffin and lox. I‘m craving bagels, and needed some kind of substitute so I don‘t raid Maya‘s bagel supply. ? #booksandlunch

Back to Jo Nesbø! #seriesread

catebutler This look delicious! One of my favourite combinations on a bagel! I haven‘t tried it on an muffin though, I should give it a try! (edited) 11mo
4thhouseontheleft @catebutler It was good! But it was missing capers. I didn‘t have any. I‘m super picky with bagels, and can‘t get a decent GF one where I live. (edited) 11mo

My loaded miso 🍜 is perfect for a day like today! And since everyone else ate at Pita Pit 🥙 while I was grocery 🛍 🛒 , I am taking some quiet reading time too! #booksandlunch #fairytaleretelling

Cathythoughts Everything looks good 👍🏻♥️ 11mo
4thhouseontheleft @Cathythoughts It is! Variations of this soup are my go-to quick meal this winter! 11mo
Christine The soup looks fantastic! Do you use a particular base recipe? 11mo

4thhouseontheleft @Christine This was my original inspiration, but I do it differently each time! https://www.yummymummykitchen.com/2016/09/nourishing-miso-soup-recipe.html 11mo
ephemeralwaltz That looks incredible! 11mo
Christine Yum, thanks for sharing the recipe!! Onto my meal plan for the week it goes. 😋 11mo
Megabooks Looks great! Beautiful picture! 11mo
4thhouseontheleft @ephemeralwaltz @Megabooks Thanks! @christine For the version I had today, I actually used the Lotus GF Ramen, and added extra miso into it. And I always add fresh bok choy into my bowl and pour the soup on top. The heat cooks it slightly without overdoing it. Today‘s bowl also had 2 big handfuls of shredded cabbage/Brussels sprouts/kale, and a few small meatballs. 11mo
Megabooks @4thhouseontheleft where do you find gf ramen? I have celiac disease and I‘ve never seen it. 😋😋 11mo
4thhouseontheleft @Megabooks I buy them at Whole Foods, but I think they are on Amazon, too. I love the Wakame and brown rice one. I usually don‘t use the flavor packets, but I have once or twice and it‘s pretty good! https://www.lotusfoods.com 11mo
Megabooks @4thhouseontheleft Thank you!! 👍🏻😊 11mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Megabooks I just saw GF ramen at Costco this weekend. 11mo
Megabooks @BarbaraTheBibliophage Thank you for thinking of me!! 💜💜 11mo

Making slow progress with this, due to constant interruptions, 😂 but it is just as wonderful as I remember it being as a kid! I love when #childhoodfavorites stand up to the test of time.

On p. 76/223.

After a week of rain, this gorgeous sunny day is calling my name. A reading hiatus is coming up!

rubyslippersreads ❤️ this book! 2y
PursuitofSanity I grew up in Wethersfield, and I honestly didn‘t realize anyone outside our town read that book. A childhood fave around town for sure . 2y
KathyWheeler I must‘ve read this book about 40 times when I was young. I should read it again. 2y
4thhouseontheleft @PursuitofSanity @KathyWheeler I also read this book dozens of times as a kid, but it‘s probably been 20 years since I last read it! 2y

Leftover soup for lunch on this sunny but cool day.

The recipe is from the tagged cookbook: Spiced carrot and pepper soup with a couscous swirl.

#booksandlunch #cookbook

EvieBee Looks delish! 🍲 2y
Tamra Yum! 2y
4thhouseontheleft @EvieBee The couscous really makes it!! Otherwise, it is a little boring. 😃 It‘s seasoned with harissa, ginger, cumin and a touch of cinnamon, next time I think I will add more harissa than the recipe called for. 2y
