I had the perfectly balanced weekend – a lot of "boy," as usual, time carved out for a cooking class with Mom and some reading. What am I reading? Thanks for asking! I'm charging full speed ahead through the "Flavia de Luce" mystery series by Alan Bradley and loving every poisonous second!
Here are the reviews:
Cooking class - WONDERFUL! Taken through Cooks of Crocus Hill on Grand Avenue in Saint Paul. It was a brief, basic class on homemade pizza and more importantly a fabulous dough technique. While sitting along the stone counter watching three masters at work, I was recharged for this weeks cooking demands.
Book series - An 11-year-old girl obsessed with chemistry and poisons. She is a super sleuth who stumbles upon trouble (a.k.a - dead body) and digs for more (a.k.a - breaking and entering) with unmatched wit and charm. Set in 1950's England, you'll absorb a bit of culture, a bit of class and a bit of academia. I LOVE this book series in which there are six for now...will there be more? A TV series?
Remainder of weekend - Boys, boys, boys. One enjoyed the outdoors, a sleepover with Nana and helped with Grandpas project. The other I spent most of my time "dancing to sleep."
That's what I've been up to :)
