So…here’s the thing…I wanted to read something that was sorta fluffy, sorta foodie, sorta sweet, sorta beachy and sorta nothing I really have to pressure myself to read…so…up popped catering Penelope! Penelope is catering for a movie. Filming is on a small island in Florida. The book is filled with sand and shrimp and drinks and beach walks and then two teen aged girls who work for Penelope disappear! It was a totally fun addictive book. Well…other than the missing girls. I loved it.
Saturday night stay at home dinner…baked cheesy rigatoni…this was so good!
Seriously good! The recipe and this photo are from a site called the Stir.
I also read this book over the week end…quite the opposite of the one above.
So…this one was written by a local author. It was fast paced and so down and dirty my head was spinning. Vivid images are stuck in my head from this book. I could not put it down! Vicious nasty people disguised as pillars of the community do some really nasty stuff in this book. One…maybe two…good guys were against all of the bad ones. It also had the added attraction of being formatted in Philadelphia…which is not far from me. So landmarks mentioned…even the fieldstone old farmhouses…were familiar to me and fun to read about! The main character even had a duck pond…like me…but a car with a dead guy in it never landed in mine…yet…although one of our “way behind” neighbor’s car rolled into our pine tree…a few years ago.
Den was supposed to be away on Sunday through Tuesday but his trip was cancelled…so we had a relaxing and enjoying more normal Sunday.
I made a Dutch Baby Pancake for breakfast…so much fun to watch this baby puff up! You are seeing what’s left of it in its flattened stage!
That was my week end…
Reading this now…it is seriously good! Based on the life of the real Jean Harlow! It’s a bit of a page turner!
Soooo…Monday…I am longing around with coffee…reading…and in between chapters I am getting boring stuff done…
Have a great day!
