Book club was a success! And Adam got off of his shift early and got to spend the afternoon with me, so it was a great day all-around.
I got up early to do some final cleaning (when people come over I like to pretend that we’re not slobs) and snacked on a bag of popcorn and a slice of 2% provolone while I worked.
I also did some major 2-for-me-and-1-for-the-bowl-ing while I prepped the fruit salad.
At 10 my friends arrived and we feasted.
We may not have really talked about the book (I Was Told There’d Be Cake) but at least we had some good eats!
My plate had potatoes,
cheesy baked eggs,
and a crepe (so cool!) with Biscoff spread on the inside.
We also made hibiscus mimosas.
It was all great fun. No people pictures though because we suck at remembering to take them. I always have my camera with me (duh) so I need to do a better job at snapping candids.
We book clubbed until after 3pm and then my cultural meal pattern group and I baked some Irish soda bread to bring to our presentation tomorrow. By the time they left I was starving again and my study motivation was seriously waning. But I have an important cumulative exam – spanning two semesters and material from 2 courses – tomorrow. What to do, what to do?
Somehow the husband and I decided that the solution was to go out to dinner and study at the table while other people prepared our food!
We went to an all-you-can-eat sushi spot that has a longish wait between courses and it was actually perfect. I’m not prepared for tomorrow by any means, but I got a lot more done than I would have at home.
I also ate a lot. I just plain don’t have time to break the pictures down, but here’s a shot of what I ate.
Wow! Highlights included edamame, tamago (sweet egg) sushi, and tempura zucchini.
And we stopped at Wegmans for a candy cane for dessert.
