The Count Counts Scary Things | Stephanie St. Pierre

#SoaringScores
Don‘t #CountMeOut even though I wanted to tag “Out and About with the Count” & it wasn‘t in the Litsy database.😐Remember when Scratch ‘n Sniff was all the rage? 👃🏻The Count is probably my favorite Sesame Street character so I immediately thought of him for this prompt.🤗🦇🧛🏻‍♂️🖤

I Can Cook Vegan | Isa Chandra Moskowitz
post image
Pickpick

Even though I‘ve just cooked the Creamy Chickpea Bow Tie Soup (so far) from this book, I‘m going to go ahead & give it a pick because...well...it‘s Isa Chandra Moskowitz. Whether new cook, new vegan, wanting to eat more veg-friendly or like me, just want good food on the table quickly, this book has something to offer. The soup is rich, delicious & easy to make. I‘ll be using this cookbook, part of #abramsdinnerparty, A LOT. Recipe/review link👇🏻

I love Neil Patrick Harris & his husband David Burtka (they were adorable cooking with Ina Garten on her show not that long ago). I think Burtka, an actor, chef & event planner is definitely a #PartyMan as evidenced by his book‘s title. 😉

Back at Half-Moon Hollow with some favorite characters for this week‘s #audiosouping as I needed something light & fun & good for October since it‘s full of vampires & other supernaturals. Today‘s soup is Creamy Chickpea Bow Tie Soup from Isa Chandra Moskowitz‘s newest cookbook. This is before it gets the cashew cream to give it the promised “pot-pie vibes.”😋Finished soup pics coming later.

It‘s funny, I used these same books and a similar shot two years ago for a prompt & only realized it when I went to post this one. 🤷‍♀️ Anyway, I reviewed this book series for a book tour, drawn in by the Downton Abbey-like setting & family. In this sweeping saga I‘m sure at least one person wondered #DidIMakeTheMostOfLovingYou ?

#SoaringScores #CatchUp
Set in the Scottish Highlands with boats, hills & fog, I think this book works as a catch up for #LeavingPort #MistyMountains & #TheSkyeBoatSong 😉Finished early in the week. The usual Colgan sweet & a nice revisit to the characters from The Bookshop on the Corner with a new MC helping out Nina. I wasn‘t sure of Zoe at first but she won me over & I adored the two young boys Hari & Patrick. Not my favorite but easy & good.

DebinHawaii I just realized the description must be for the British version as the MC & son‘s names are totally different. Odd. 🤔 (edited) 3d

I had to listen to the end today to finish & find out what happens. I tried to stay away from all the hype it got as I think it can color my opinion to the negative, so I slowly worked my way through it & loved both the story & Cassandra Campbell‘s narration. Kya & her marsh were both beautiful & touched my heart. There were a few slow parts meandering along the way but when I let myself get caught up in the prose & the nature, it was magical🧡

I love books about people who trek & go adventuring & checked this one out from the library as it starts in Washington & the Pacific Northwest which used to be my #Homeland before I moved to Oahu in 2001.😉

At about 75% complete, it‘s today‘s #audiosouping choice. Part of me wants to read ahead in the print version but I‘m enjoying the narration & storytelling too much. Today‘s soup is a simple creamy tomato—a Mark Bittman recipe from How to Cook Everything. It‘s still not quite tomato soup weather here (too humid) but it will be welcome for lunches in my cold office this week. Finished soup pics coming later.

What I liked best was learning about “The Reno Cure” where women would go live in Reno, Nevada for 6 weeks in order to establish residency & get an uncontested divorce. Set in 1952, 3 women follow #TheCallOfDestiny (one more reluctantly than the others) to new lives in a time when it wasn‘t easy to take a different path than the happily ever after they expected. Paired with Chop Suey for my book tour review link to post👇🏻

This was only my second Nicci French book but I really enjoyed it. Neve risks a 29-year marriage on an affair with her married boss & when she finds him dead, scrubs the crime scene in hopes of keeping the affair secret. Good pacing, twists & turns that had me guessing & although I didn‘t start out liking Neve that much, I was rooting for her by the end. Here with Sour Cream Scrambled Egg Toasts for my book tour review. Recipe/review link👇🏻

#RedRoseSeptember (I caught up!🤗)

This book is historical fiction about the secret city of Oak Ridge, Tennessee. Created as part of The Manhattan Project during WW2, the majority of workers living there didn‘t know they were helping enrich uranium for the atomic bomb. Many women worked on #TheThingummyBob machines & even if they suspected or wondered what they were doing beyond “aiding in the war efforts”—they weren‘t allowed to talk about it.

There are more than #TwoTribes in the Philippines, in fact there are 134 ethnic groups, mostly indigenous, there. About a dozen tribes were put on display at the St. Louis Exposition, the most popular were the Igorrotes & a tribe of them was recruited & brought for display at Coney Island in 1905. I like to give this fascinating yet dismaying book about their treatment a little love now & then—it‘s a great book.

This is (Not) Chicken Enchilada Soup from Eating Well, subbing in jackfruit for the chicken to make it meat free. It‘s really good, as is the book so far. I had not heard of women in the ‘40s & ‘50s taking the “Reno cure”-staying in Reno, Nevada for 6 weeks to get a fast divorce. I like historical fiction that teaches me something.🤓
