Happy Weekend: Need Your Book Recs!

I love a good book recommendation. A friend/cousin (frousin?) recommended Portrait of An Addict as a Young Man by Bill Clegg. It was a short read but a wild ride that narrows in on a successful literary agent’s addiction and recovery. What should I read next?

Speaking of nothing related to books…I am loving a fanny pack these days (or as the highbrows call them, ‘belt bags’). Kind of eyeing this one for Fall/Winter.

I scheduled my yearly physical for this month so I will spend Saturday morning fasting and getting my blood drawn. FUN! Consider this your friendly reminder to prioritize your health and Β get these annoying-but-necessary appointments on the calendar.

Last night I attended my first ever Moms Demand Action meeting. They are a bipartisan group that counts firearm owners and non-firearm owners in their membership and their focus is on responsible gun ownership and laws. The meeting was short, succinct, and action packed (we drafted postcards to legislators, signed petitions, celebrated new developments) and I’m really glad I went. Check them out here.

Happy weekend!

 

Happy Weekend: May it include tomatoes

tomato tart

Years ago, I made this Tomato Tart (via Martha Stewart) and fell completely in love. We had it this past Tuesday when a dear family member came for dinner and Gus was more than happy to lend a hand. Oh, and I never make my own dough because I loathe a rolling pin. Highly recommend Trader Joe’s frozen pie crust. πŸ™‚

Gus’ class pet is a bearded dragon named Rita.

I just finished reading Daisy Jones & The Six. I LOVED the first half of the book. The second-half was just so-so. What did you think?

Tomorrow we’re meeting up with some neighbors and my kids are begging me to make this for dessert.

Happy Weekend, friends.
