We’ve been hibernating at bit this weekend, how about you? We’re really enjoying binging on The Newsroom and Alpha House (John Goodman! John Goodman! John Goodman!). Then, I finished Across the Great Barrier last night and dove right into the next book in the young adult series, The Far West. My insta review: highly readable; the best quickie description would be Little House on the Prairie meets Harry Potter. The main character grows and stretches and learns to be independent and know her own mind in a very satisfying emotional “arc”. As a bonus, Alex even enjoyed the parts I read aloud today about scouting in the “Wild West” (with only a bit editing from me on the fly). What are you reading and watching this weekend?
PS I made these scones today, in a scramble when I realized the larder was bare and a friend was coming over in a half and hour, and they turned out flaky and very scone like. Internet recipe success!
