It’s the weekend! Was this the longest week ever or is it just me? I think because last Sunday was such a rough day (that was the nail cutting event) I didn’t feel refreshed from the weekend. Never mind that, though, because we made it to Saturday.
We have a low-ish key weekend with a haircut scheduled for me (first one since last summer, yikes) and are finally seeing good friends of ours that we haven’t seen in months. I can’t wait to catch up with them! Other than that I’m ready for sunshine to resume so I can start being outside more and taking L to the pool and the park again.
Giveaway time: THE WORLD ON A PLATE: 40 Cuisines, 100 Recipes, and the Stories Behind Them by Mina Holland
I was sent a copy of The World on a Plate by Mina Holland and get to give one away as well! I just started reading it, but can already tell you that it is a great book for anyone that loves food (especially if you love food AND travel). Mina basically explores forty cuisines from all over the world and breaks them down for you. Plus, each cuisine comes with a couple of recipes. My takeaway so far? Time to drink more wine and get back to Europe. With L around, a trip to Europe isn’t happening so fast, though, so I guess we will have to try some of the recipes from places we want to visit instead.
Anyway, if you are interested in winning a free copy of her book, just leave any comment on this post. Giveaway will end Friday June 12th midnight EST. Open to US residents only.
