It's Sunday and summer is here. The docks are in, the boat is ready for cruising around the lake, and I'm almost done with the flowerpots. My plan was to finish them on Friday, but I ended up reading instead...
Finished this week//
The Children by Ann LearyIf you're craving some dysfunctional family drama this summer, look no further! I'll have a mini-review up soon.
The Nightingale by Kristin HannahThe first half was slow, but I raced through the rest of this book. It was much better and more enjoyable than expected. I'll post a review of this one, too.
Note to self: sign up for Andi's Reviewathon!
Sweetbitter by Stephanie Danler
I was just going to sample this last night, but ended up reading seventy-five pages. Can't wait to pick it up again tonight!
Cranford by Elizabeth Gaskell
On the blog//
There was definitely more reading than blogging last week. I only posted once:
My Summer Reading List
In the kitchen//
I needed a quick and easy dinner Wednesday night, so tried a Chicken and Green Beans Stir-Fry from The Lemon Bowl. It's a keeper. I'll change up the vegetables and make it again soon... maybe water chestnuts, sliced carrots, and broccoli next time.
Today I'm going to bake Marcella’s Butter Almond Cake from Sweet Amandine for our family dinner... with a side of fresh berries.
First, another cup of coffee and the New York Times. Later, I'll bake that almond cake, get more flowers at the nursery, and then we'll all have dinner at my sister's. I do love Sundays!
