Appetites: a Cookbook | Anthony Bourdain
post image

Happy Thanksgiving, Litsy family! ☺️ I‘m up before dawn, getting started on cooking my first-ever Thanksgiving dinner, with the help of Anthony Bourdain here. Just finished making this garlic herb butter with lemon zest, mmmm. I have so much to be thankful for this year! 🙏🏻 Wishing the same for all of you. ❤️

BookBabe Note: I got the lemon herb butter recipe from Gordon Ramsay on YouTube 😬 https://youtu.be/e5PFXhdfVT8 2w
wordslinger42 Sounds yummy!! Happy Thanksgiving 🦃💚 2w
Megabooks Happy thanksgiving! I hope your pregnancy is going well! Wishing you a good holiday season! 2w

Gissy @BookBabe So sorry to hear about that but I respect your decision. You are so talent person. Then I'm honored to have some of your last works. But if for any reason you decide to do it again in the future, let me know. Once again, Congratulations! My best wishes for you and your husband!💞 2mo

This dinner was too good to read during(although I did have my Kindle with me as always)...but I still had to share it with you! It‘s my favorite meal at my favorite restaurant. Fresh salad & delicious sangria, flaming chorizo sausage, seasoned rice, and thick filet mignon on a hot stone. You cook it bite by bite right at the table, it‘s amazing! Never a cold bite, all cooked to your liking. Restaurant Valença in Elizabeth NJ—highly recommend!❤️?

DGRachel That looks amazing! I love sangria, but I'd be terrified of burning myself on that hot stone. 3mo

The Adventures Of The Librarian: Quest For The Spear | Christopher Tracy, David Titcher
post image

This movie would probably be a hit with a lot of Littens. 😊 He lands a highly coveted job as a librarian at a really awesome library, and is in charge of guarding the world‘s greatest treasures (think the Ark of the Covenant and the real Mona Lisa), and goes on an epic adventure to protect these treasures. The Librarian is the hero!

There‘s a book adaptation of it too.

umbrellagirl I liked this series. Enjoy! 3mo

A Kindle of Kittens | Rumer Godden

Here‘s a side-by-side comparison of my original first gen Kindle Oasis and the new 3rd gen Oasis. You can see the difference in screen size and screen warmth. (Plus a sleepy #Coale because cats make any picture more fun!😸)

SassyBookworm I‘ve always stuck with the paperwhites (my most recent is the waterproof one), do you like the oasis? Worth the extra cost? Just curious ☺️ 3mo

BookBabe @SassyBookworm I love the Oasis! The weight is balanced nicely in the hand, since the battery is all on once side. Much more ergonomic experience. Love the physical page turn buttons. I‘ve never owned a Paperwhite but I did have the Voyage briefly and returned it. The Oasis accomplished what the Voyage didn‘t. 😊 3mo
SassyBookworm @BookBabe thank you! I will have to check out the Oasis! ☺️ 3mo
BookBabe @SassyBookworm Forgot to mention, I adore the warm light setting! It‘s a big help at night, and it makes the Kindle feel more like a book. 😊👍🏻 3mo

Yes!!! My new 3rd Gen Kindle Oasis has arrived! I love it, it‘s awesome. Bigger screen, waterproof, and best of all it has a warm light setting! 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 Just in time for a fabulous #DinnerAndABook with some yummy middle eastern food—chicken kebab with yellow seasoned basmati rice, tabboule, baba gannoush, grilled pita, and salad with feta and grape leaves. And wine, of course. 😋 #Kindle #Oasis

#LunchAndABook! It‘s a beautiful day, so I‘m sitting in the garden at my favorite cafe in the dappled sunlight, listening to jazz while I read, sipping a ginger turmeric iced tea and nibbling on a yummy ham & cheese sandwich with arugula and red pepper aioli. 😋 Cold brew iced coffee and shortbread for dessert.

Any Josh Turner fans here? I had awesome 2nd row seats at his show over the weekend! 😃 I snapped this photo just as he tossed his guitar pick into the audience.

Tried to buy his book from the merch stand after the show but it was sold out, so I‘m going to order it from his website. I‘m sure it‘s geared more towards men, judging from the title😛...but I still want to read it anyway.
Here‘s my favorite song of his:

BookNAround Does he read it on audio? I bet that would make it an amazing listen! 4mo

Nice day for a #LitsyWalkers outing. 😁 It was warm enough and the snow is finally disappearing. I explored some of the surrounding area today, and walked along the creek by the house. Thoroughly enjoyable. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 I‘ve been doing 3-hour workouts every day. Usually 1 hour of cardio and 2 hours of walking. Much of it has been indoors because of the brutal winter we‘ve been having, but now it‘s getting nice out again! 😄

Penny_LiteraryHoarders Awesome! I need this motivation and get out walking like that!! 9mo

#BookNDinner! #Thai Edition! Accompaniment this cold and snow-blanketed evening was: pan-seared sesame-crusted ahi tuna, in a yellow curry sauce, with asparagus and other veggies, and hot ginger tea. MMMMmmm 😋! Happy reads & happy eats!

LiteratiCafe This was one of the saddest books I‘ve read. When I finished all I could think was how does someone come up with such a story. Truly an amazing imagination, but oh so dark. This one is on my recommendation list of books with feels. The list includes The Dogs of Babel and Good Grief. All three are so good and so sad. 7mo

We had our monthly meeting of #ThePoconoBookClub this afternoon 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻! Since we were meeting at an Irish pub in March, I got a giant plate of corned beef & cabbage with boiled potato. Potato leek soup first though. Yum! 😋 Fireplace was roaring. Cozy! We had a great discussion, especially since some of us enjoyed the selection and some of us didn‘t—always makes for interesting conversation. 👍🏻👍🏻 Have you read this book?

SusieCakes Looks delish 9mo

Another great meeting of the #2030SomethingBookClub that @MrBook and I run in #NYC! Excellent discussion. And there was a lot to discuss about this book. Have you read it? What did you think?

C.Perone I loved this book. The whole bizarre doors thing was great. 10mo
Reviewsbylola I HATED this book. 🙈 10mo
Reviewsbylola Which in a way can elicit it‘s own great discussion. 10mo
ladyneverwhere I loved this book! It was one of my favorites I read last year! 10mo
Billypar I really liked it: for a short novel, I felt like it captured the relationship between the main characters in a realistic way, even as it covered the larger societal implications of the doors. For me it combined the appeals of a magical realist novel and a short story. 10mo

Forgot to post this during yesterday‘s snow storm. ❄️ Very uncharacteristic of me to venture out in bad weather, but something about the way the snow was falling excited me and I wanted to see how it looked covering the train tracks. Very glad I took a stroll to see it! It was so beautiful and peaceful. ❤️ #LitsyWalkers #audiowalk

#BookNDinner! #Thai edition! I tried a new (to me) Thai place tonight. Exquisite cuisine! Lovely ambiance too. I had a Tom Kha coconut milk soup followed by pan-seared bass in ginger sauce with veggies. Paired with a Thai iced tea with a twist—it was spiked with coconut rum. Soooo yummy! 😋 Happy reads & happy eats!

#BookNBrunch! #ValentinesDay Edition! Tried to go to a trendy boutique brunch spot, and that was a nope...they were slammed, understaffed, and there was a line. So, back to the local 50‘s diner it is! At least the food and service are always consistently good here.

Since it‘s a special occasion, I‘m going carb-indulgent today. Ham/spinach/cheese omelet, crispy hash brown patties, and raisin toast, with coffee.😋 Happy reads & happy eats!
