I finished a great first book in a series.....
This is definitely a "cozy mystery" and I loved it! One of those books that you don't want to put down and can't wait to pick up again. The tale starts with the main character getting a letter from her elderly Aunt who lives in a small town on the Maine coast. The main character lives in New York City, works as a textile designer and works for her French boyfriend in his design business. That's all I'm going to say but the houses and the renovations are really cool and there's even directions in the back for some of the projects she does! I love it!!!! I'm already reading the next book in the series and so far so good also!
Been working on the quilt blocks among other things. Oh, BTW....that GMA pasta recipe was "okay" but not compared to the amount of dishes dirtied and the time it took to put together. It called for 4 different cheeses and it didn't even taste that cheesy! It is good but could be lots better. Next time I'll choose my own cheeses, the Maria Rosa sauce is excellent but you could use Mario Batali's which to me is tastier considering there is no meat in it and easier. I used spinach instead of Swiss Chard since I couldn't find it. Jarlsburg cheese is like a baby swiss cheese so I used baby swiss and I used provolone instead of what they used (I can't remember what it was but the store didn't have it). I'm adding more sauce to it tonight because it was dry. I never got my carrot cake made because the pasta dish took so long to make. Hopefully, today I'll get the carrot cake made....my sweet tooth is aching! LOL!
Here's the blocks so far....I have 5 more blocks to sew buttons on today/tonight....getting closer! They have to be ready before Wednesday!
I hope you are all enjoying your weekend! TTYS!
