I definitely got my fill of walking in!! After walking to and from Great Harvest, I ran into Matt on the downtown mall after getting a haircut. Love haircut days!
I was able to pass of a heavy bag of feta cheese and cameras and go for a walk with this girl, who just happened to be heading out on a walk when I texted her that we should be walking together!
We covered a few miles around downtown. [Love my fashion statement? Last minute outfit ; ) ]
At home I made an easy pasta salad to take to book club!
Pasta (Italian pasta Karen brought back from her trip last year]
Tossed with some herby olive oil
To which I added a nice cube of feta cheese, some olives, chopped tomato and spinach plus a drizzle of balsamic.
The ladies at book club seemed to really like it! I think it was the herby olive oil 🙂
Tonight’s book was A Visit From The Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan. It won a Pulitzer Prize!
Unfortunately I didn’t love the book. It’s kind of a collection of short stories about characters who are vaguely intertwined. Therefore, there wasn’t much of a plot. I really liked parts of the book, but then that part would be over and a whole new set of characters, setting and voice were introduced and the book essentially started over. Perhaps I was just a bit distracted when I read because others were able to make connections between the chapters. Not my favorite book of all times.
The FOOD, however, was quite delicious tonight!!
I finally got to try one of Dr. Ho’s Humble Pies. This pizza was GOOD but I think I need to experience it again to get the true meaning : )
Alice made nachos on the spot!
Reds for sipping! Can’t have book club without vino.
Plate of food.
We passed around Seamane’s Chocolate Peanut Butter-Stuffed Brownies for dessert! Plus some delicious cookies Becca brought.
Thanks to Ashley and her four-legged family for hosting!
