It’s Monday and I’m reading the graphic novel adaptation of Kindred

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog   and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date

 

 

My mum returned to Singapore early Thursday morning so the rest of last week was all about returning to regula programming. The husband had a busy weekend of working from home so we didn’t do much. But we did have some in-N-Out on a sunshiney blue-sky California Saturday. 

I’ve been experimenting with the tangzhong method (which requires a roux) of making bread. And am considering writing a post about it. 

And we made pizza 🍕

  1. Your pictures in this post are gorgeous. I have an ARC ok the Kindred Graphic Novel which I need to get too soon, although it’s not in color I’m sure it will be as fabulous as the finished copy! Have you read the novel already?
