Cookbooks and rules

Of late, a lot of my reading has been cookbooks and new recipes along with the rules to new board games.

The hubby is seriously looking at going vegan and GenCon was two weeks ago, so we’re eating new foods and playing new games.

Even though it’s still August, on the food front, we’re doing a lot of soups and stew type things. I’m not ready to tackle cooking tofu yet, but we’ve made a lot of good other dishes.

On the game front, we’re doing ok too.



Santorini is a 2-4 player game but really shines with two. Think of like like 3D tic-tac-toe but the board is 6×6 (I think). We’ve only played a couple times, but I definitely want to keep working on this one.

He also got the Marvel Legendary card game.

This was the original sorting-out-all-the-cards bit. We’ve played twice and won twice, so that’s awesome.

Vacation Reading List and Other Priorities

It’s official, I have too many potential books to read for my upcoming vacation and now I don’t know which to read.

I’d read the whole time except I get to meet this fluffy-face while I’m away.


This is my new dog-brother, Reggie, and I’m sure playing with puppy might actually beat out reading books.
