We had Book Club on Monday and it was seriously some of the best food we have had in quite awhile. It was SO good and we were so excited about it that we totally forgot to take any before photos. We did take a quick photo before the food was all gone but after we had already been eating.
There were some requests for the zucchini bread recipe (you can see it on the table next to the bread) and you can print it off HERE. (Note: the zucchini can be substituted for bananas if you want to use it for banana bread.)
No one really wanted to get their photo taken while eating so we just skipped a group photo for that day. So we will just keep recycling our summer reading kick off photo because that one turned out so well and we can keep rocking that one for as long as we want.
Our book club book was House Calls and Hitching Posts which was a nonfiction book about an Amish doctor and his patients. The famous line of the book was something along the lines of “You can learn something from everyone”.
The reviews of the book were mixed. Some people really liked the book. Some suffered through. Some began the book and decided not to read it.
The one thing we all agreed on was we love veggie straws.
Have you heard of Veggie Straws? We hadn’t but Naomi brought them assuring us that Amish always have Veggie Straws at potlucks and we could not keep eating them. She finds them at Costco but they can be found at Walmart as well as Meijer and,Amazon pantry has them as well.
We gave up even trying to pretend we could stop eating them and just put them on the table with us. VEGGIE STRAWS WITH SEA SALT. Go get them.
Our next book is The Race for Paris by Meg Waite Clayton. We haven’t read a war book for a few months (shocker for us this year, who knew we would have accidentally picked so many war books at the beginning of the year?) and we seem to have some excitement brewing over this book.
What was really cool is that when we mentioned on facebook that we would be reading this book, the author commented on it!
How cool was THAT?
Join us on Monday, September 26 at 1pm as we read The Race For Paris by our Meggie (we can call her “our Meggie” now that we are chums, right?).
B&N had a recent sale on this book so some of you may have purchased it for your Nook for $1.99 or something like that. If you want to get an ebook from the library, be aware there is a hold waiting list on it. But you can put your name to the list HERE.
If you want to check it out from MeL, go HERE.
Any way you get a book, just be sure to join us for the fun discussion on Monday, September 26. All you have to do is show up. But it does help if you have read the book and having something to share with us to eat is always nice too.
