Since I don't quite fit into the available memes and am notoriously erratic posting these things, we bring you books and bites this week. Maybe we shall do this again. Maybe I will flake out and not. Disclaimer - either scenario is entirely possible.
A stretch for this culinarily-challenged chick the gyro meatballs and sauce from the Against All Grain cookbook which I heart. (The recipe is here in burger form. Same same though) It's been a very long time since I have had lamb but this was a surprising hit here. I have no pic of the zoodles on my plate which is ok because the spiralizer is not here yet so my zoodles are less than photogenic. But yum nonetheless.
In reading news I am working through the boys' book report boys with gusto so we can discuss as they go. This month it is The Singing Tree for Kieran and Lilies of the Field for Aidan. The Singing Tree is the second "children's" book I have read in recent months and ended up laughing and crying my way through. This one however hits rather close to home having a son in the military in an unstable world. Sometimes it seems we have not progressed all that much from 1914 to 2014. Anyway, a very good read.
Lilies of the Field is on deck tomorrow. I admit my only reference is Sidney Poitier. We shall fix that. Upside of waiting this long to read it is that I have recently lived in Germany. Aidan can read the dialect lines quite well. ; )
