We had a great book club last night.
We all loved this book and all feel it was one of the best books we've read in a long while. We are all looking forward to more from M. L. Stedman.
We had great food including:
- Chicken, bacon, mushroom & cheese quesadillas (based on an Outback Restaurant Alice Springs recipe)
- Shrimp on the barb
- Shrimp Cocktail
- Chicken Salad Sandwiches
- Multiple salads (Tarragon Potato Salad, Greens with Blueberries & Strawberries, Ramen Slaw, Chickpea, Mango, Cilantro Salad)
- Lamington Cupcakes
- Fruit Cocktail Cake
Our next book is Wild by Cheryl Strayed.
At twenty-two, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother’s death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life. With no experience or training, driven only by blind will, she would hike more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State—and she would do it alone. Told with suspense and style, sparkling with warmth and humor,Wild powerfully captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddened, strengthened, and ultimately healed her.
