There are many things I love about a ride down a country back road. This is one of them. Seeing this very unexpected line of guinea fowl crossing the road. Very slowly....keeping cars from passing as they inched forward.
Yes, people could just blow through and leave a mangled mess of feathers and dead birds but I am pleased that a slower pace and politeness won the moment.
Books and Reading Challenges
On the reading front I have finished another Maggie O’Farrell book – The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox and have been fortunate enough to snag the newest book (Paris) by Edward Rutherfurd. I have read both books in his Ireland series as well as The Forest. Very much enjoyed them.
Since it's December - (yikes how did that get here so quickly?!) I am looking ahead to my reading goals. Just joined in with Shelly Rae at her site Book'd Out for her 2014 Eclectic Reader Challenge. Check it out HERE. I have enjoyed being part of the reading challenge group at Beth Fish Reads for 2013 and need to get hustling to finish up the What's in a Name
Last but certainly not least, here is a wonderful Navarin d'Agneau from French Classics by Richard Grausman. I have made this version many times and it never disappoints. If you'd like to see my previous efforts (and the recipe) check it out HERE
Coming up will be more Donna Hay dishes, Nigel Slater books and wine reviews.
The latest foodie website to catch my fancy is The Pie Patch...check it out. Lots of great recipes, DIY projects and witty writing. Love it.
Take care out there.
