Friday Wrap Up!



I am liking this new wrap up I do- on Friday instead of Sunday because I think the week should start on Friday!

We weren’t supposed to ski this weekend, because the kids have “things” to do, but hubby is playing hooky from work, so just he and I will go up for the day!

Here is what happened here this week-


I have had a very busy week reading wise.  I finally finished Leaving Time by Jodi Picoult.  It did get better, but not one of my favorites by her.

I also finished At the Water’s Edge by Sara Gruen, A Love Song of Miss Quennie Hennesy by Rachel Joyce, and The Dream Lover by Elizabeth Berg.  These were all ARCs, so I feel especially productive!

I just started The Girl on The Train (I bow to pressure-jk).


I wasn’t that great posting this week, but I did manage to do this weeks Top Ten Tuesday!  I was too busy with all the reading.

I just realized yesterday that I have almost 7 books that I read and still need to write the review for.  I had better get cracking on Monday!


This was an interesting week.  I started off by thinking I wanted to cook lighter, but with this cold weather-oh well.

We had yummy chicken quesadillas on the weekend that I make with my panini maker-love that thing.

I made my daughter’s favorite- angel hair pasta with grape tomatoes and chicken.

I also made an amazing Roast Chicken-with mashed potatoes and sautéed green beans.

And yesterday brought a brand new recipe for Thai Red Curry with Beef, served with jasmine rice.


How was your week?

  1. I’m going to check out the beef thai curry, hubby just came home with a bunch of curry pastes from Whole Foods the other day. I love my panini maker as well,it doubles as a griddle and makes weekend pancakes so much easier.

    I love that your hubby is playing hooky from work to ski 🙂 Sometimes you just need a day without the kids. My husband and I did the same thing a few weeks ago (not to ski though), and it was nice to go get lunch and chill out on our own.

    BTW: I think you might guess since I lead with food in my comment, but I do love how you are incorporating food in to the wrap up 🙂

  2. Drove to Virginia in two separate snowstorms. (As a Southerner, I don’t know how to drive in winter weather.) Arrived white-knuckled and addled in Charlottesville. Had three appearances. Visited Monticello. Sold some books and made some new friends. Drove home. Packing myself in the car in the morning for an appearance in Athens, Georgia tomorrow night. Busy week.
