It’s Monday



Where did that weekend go?


We tried out a new-to-us restaurant in Palo Alto, and a new cuisine – Caribbean food. We had oxtail stew which came with fried plantain and beans and rice. Jerk chicken. And a roasted sea bass that had a yummy coconut milk sauce with okra and spinach. Also the top photo is a sampler platter of spicy beef patties, coconut shrimp, jerk wings.

Made more walnut bread this week!

Some recent finished projects – a Magikarp hat!

Working on some African flower hexagons to use up leftover yarn. Haven’t quite figured out what to do with it yet.

It’s going to be a much warmer week so won’t do so much baked stuff. Maybe noodles. Rice and dishes.

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



  1. Your crochet projects make me want to pick up my hooks again. The walnut bread looks delicious!


  2. Oh my gosh that hat! It’s absolutely adorable! And I haven’t had breakfast yet so all of your food pictures are making me hungry. lol. I read the Maggie O’Farrell book last year and loved it. I have another one of her books on my shelf and really look forward to reading it. Have a good week!
