Reading and Cooking

Over the past week or two I've read:
Like mother, like daughter!
  • The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows
  • March by by Geraldine Brooks
  • The Heretic's Daughter by by Kathleen Kent
  • Sanctuary of Outcasts by by Neil White
  • Proven Guilty by Jim Butcher
  • probably a couple more I've forgotten,
  • like Case Histories by Kate Atkinson,
  • and gotten ahead on my Newsweeks.
This one, too.


One of Ellie's all time favorite dishes is pearled couscous and she's always thrilled to help prepare it. Also served with this meal: Greek salad, spanakopita, and roasted chicken and potatoes seasoned with basil and rosemary. (I didn't make the spanakopita from scratch; that would have cut too far into my reading time!)
