This one is the first book in the series of books about Carolyn Blue, who the last book I read was about. The story was unexpected, as was the ending, but the recipes sounded great. The book enforced my desire to visit New Orleans, for the food, if nothing else.

This one was my bathroom book for a while. It was cute, the story was told by two different characters. And there were delicious sounding recipes in most of the chapters. Unfortunately, this book is at the current end of a series, so some of the references that were made didn't make any sense to me. I guess I'll have to start at the beginning, and see where that goes.

I also completed reading a book this evening - the first book I've actually finished reading in a long time. I've been reading a lot with all of my time off, and this book has been in my purse for a while now.
I really enjoy these mysteries, which are set in medieval England.

I also had a doctor's appointment. He said that I should stay off of work until I see an orthopedic doctor. He also wants an MRI. Hopefully I can get an appointment for tomorrow.

Then, for dinner, and the rest of the evening, Tom and I watched Season 2 of Project Runway. Is that really all I did? This convalescence is the best opportunity I've had in years to get stuff done, and I feel like I've got almost nothing done. Time is slipping away, and if the doctor gives me the thumbs up tomorrow, I go back to work Friday. I need to go back to work, since I'm broke now, but I have so much to do! Anyway, enough whining.
On a happier note, Happy Birthday, Mom!

I had a totally different idea of what the movie was going to be about, but I really enjoyed it. I also want to do it! But, Tom is so picky about his food, and I have so little time, that it's prohibitive. Except for the sore ankle, and keeping it up and on ice, it was a pleasant day.

I went to the hospital and got an x-ray. They said there was no fracture, but now I have off from work until Thursday. What to do with my free time...

Some of my favorite pieces that we saw were from an artist from the Torpedo Factory Art Gallery in Alexandria, VA. We had visited there once, and saw a moose head that was made from recovered materials, and it was incredible! I'm still kicking myself for never having got a picture of it. But here were two more pieces made from recovered materials, a lion and a panda.
After we left the National Harbor, Dad and I met Donnie at his place, and we went out to dinner at the Lebanese Taverna at Pentagon Row. We ate in their outside dining area, and it was a really good experience. For an appetizer, we shared a Spinach Flatbread. It tasted like spanikopita, so naturally, I loved it! For my meal, I had a Carved Rotisserie with chicken, lamb, and beef. The sauces that were served with the dish were wonderful. Donnie had Lamb Kabobs and Dad had Grilled Salmon.
When we got back to Donnie's place, we sat down and watched "Behind Enemy Lines." Then Dad and I drove back to my house. It was a really nice day with family. I hadn't done the yard sale thing since I was a kid, and I enjoyed breaking out the camera. Of course, good food never hurts an experience either!
