My mum arrived from Singapore on Friday for a visit! Hooray! She’s staying with us for a month before she flies off back home for Chinese New Year.
City on Fire – Garth Risk Hallberg
OK I have no idea whether I can finish this before the e-book expires. I am trying and I am intrigued enough to continue with this very very long book.
I’m still making my way through The Americans, but have also watched the first episode of The Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce, which stars Lisa
Cuddy Edelstein of House MD, one of my all-time favourite tv series.
The husband asked his colleague to pick up some shortbread cookies when she was vacationing in Hawaii, and she bought these Big Island Candies macadamia nut cookies for us. Yum!
Earl Grey tea.
I’m thinking of cooking some oyakodon (or chicken and egg rice bowl) and this recipe from Two Red Bowls sounds doable
And maybe some slow-cooked Boeuf Bourguignon. I recently bought a new crockpot to replace my old one so have been wanting to test it out!
Also, I want to read ALL THE BOOKS – The Millions’ most anticipated releases of 2016. But wait! First I have to read all the buzzed about books from 2015?! So that I can follow along with the Tournament of Books! Not to mention all those books from 2014 that I never read…
So I made a Root Beer Bundt (recipe link here – please note that I cut the sugar in both the cake batter and the icing and it was still awesome) the other day, why not make a Coca-cola chocolate slice!!?!
Delicious Foods – James Hannaham
Thoughts on the book later this week I hope!
D.A. – Connie Willis
A Little Life – read it! read it!
What are you reading this week?
