THURSDAY POTPOURRI: THE TEA IS STEEPING & THE BOOK IS DELICIOUS — AUGUST 22

dining room

Welcome to Thursday Potpourri.  Another blissful morning greets me, as I sit here with the cool breeze sifting in and I wait for the tea to steep.  Preparing a container of iced tea gets my day off to a great start.

And I’m loving my read of Blue Plate Special, by Kate Christensen, a “ mouthwatering literary memoir about an unusual upbringing and the long, winding path to happiness.”

To say that the book is delicious is an understatement.  I am trying very hard to savor this book without overeating, but with each food description, I am drooling and wondering how long it would take me, a reluctant cook, to throw together one of the feasts described within these pages.  And helpfully, there are recipes.

After stashing my canister full of tea in the fridge, I decided to take a walk around the neighborhood.  A way to keep myself from grabbing a snack or two.

Now I have returned….and it is close enough to lunch that I can plan out something delicious.  The French toast selections sound so good to me right now, but I’ll probably have cheese on toast with a big tomato on top.  Sort of like this:

Do you ever eat read books about food and find yourself salivating?  Or snacking more?
