This past Saturday morning the hubby and I went out to breakfast. The little local restaurant we went to makes the most delicious homemade hot coco, with a scoop of rich whipped cream. Thought I would share with you a photo of my cup of coco, since it is Tuesday, which means it is:
You can check out and participate in this fun challenge by popping on over to .Elizabeth'sblog.
After breakfast we drove to Boston for the boat show, and there I had a little light lunch snack.
New England style clam chowder and cold beer. It was particularly good beer, a Sam Adam brick red. The chowder was good for mass produced chowder but not as good as homemade chowder.
So today we have cold precipitation turning over to rain. I have a 2 hour delay- which meant I could go back to sleep for a little bit!
Good bye frigid polar vortex cold and hello back to temperatures right around freezing.
And what's better with a nice warm cup of coco, tea or coffee than a good read. I am really enjoying my latest book.
I like it because it is history and travel woven together. Anything with Julia Child in it is interesting to me. She had a fascinating life as an American celebrity and an interesting life before that. If you don't know anything about her, she was a spy during World War II, moved to Paris with her husband after war and not only learned French but went to cooking school, wrote 2 cookbooks along with 2 other French women (Simone Beck and Louisette Bertholle) , went on to become a TV celebrity with her own Public Television cooking show, and then went on to write other cookbooks.
I didn't know anything about MK Fisher except she wrote many books related to food and James Beard I knew wrote cookbooks but I knew nothing about him. I love how this book has tied them all together in a place and time that we can't go back to other than through a book or film.
I've also been reading a new art technique book too.
Which I also recommend. It is really directed towards still life styles. But since I've been into playing around with that type of painting lately, its been a really good choice.
So no new art for me today. I am off in the wet weather going to work. Counting down until Friday when my vacation begins after school lets out.
Big Smile for me.
Hope your day is one that makes you smile too.
