Not Just About A Book Club Reads "Remarkably Bright Creatures"


 “Remarkably Bright Creatures” a debut novel by Shelby Van Pelt. This is a charming, witty exploration of friendship, reckoning, and hope that traces a widow's unlikely connection with a giant Pacific octopus named Marcellus.


  Our co hosts Judy and  Jo  created a lovely sea themed luncheon.






A wonderful discussion followed.




Huge "Thank You" to our hostesses Jo and Judy for such a perfect afternoon of food, fun and interesting conversation. Thank you also to them for the goodie bags and also to Marcia for an assortment of wonderful Octopus treats. 



Another wonderful book club meeting.  

Thank you Jo and Judy for such a lovely afternoon.

 I’ve been challenging myself with cooking easy meals during this hot spell and also using our garden tomatoes. This morning I thought of gazpacho. Using Ina Garten’s recipe it was a snap to make.  Now it just chills til dinner.



Link to recipe:


My gourmet cook friend Rob says a proper Gazpacho required sherry vinegar or sherry. So please add and be warned this recipe makes a lot. I would definitely cut in half the next time.

 Celebrating a one month birthday.



Easy Summer Pasta Dinner

 For dinner I sautéed garlic in olive oil and made pasta. Added peas, fresh basil and garden tomatoes. It was a simple meal but good for this hot weather.
