Book clubs

I've mentioned on this blog that I belong to a few book clubs, but there are two that I attend regularly and that I really love.  Those would be  "The Totally Lit" book club and "Lit Wits" book club. 
We take turns hosting for these two book clubs and every once in a while, it happens that my turn hosting for each falls on the same month.  Totally Lit meets on the LAST Wednesday of the month and Lit Wits meets on the 4th Thursday of the month.  It just so happens that this month, when I am  hosting, they fall back to back.
Last night I hosted the Totally Lit Girls, where we discussed  "The Paris Wife" and enjoyed some radish sandwiches (Ernest Hemingway loved them) and some little bit sized cream puffs. (and of course wine).   



Tonight for Lit Wits, I have to make a dinner---because this is the cook and book club---and as of now,  9:18am, I don't have that planned really.  But our book is  "Sing You Home", and I'm looking forward to some great discussion.


So, the radish sandwiches weren't bad.  I wonder if I can get away with them for tonight too?
A crusty french bread, real butter, salt and pepper, and....sliced radishes.
It was the weirdest best thing I've had in awhile.

I'd come for the wine.

I'd love to join a book club! They aren't really a common thing around here sadly.

The radish on crusty bread with butter sounds very French! And yes, I'd come for the wine too :)

I'm WISHING there was a book group in my little rural backwater! Those radish sandwiches seemed strange to me too. I read about them in Molly Wizenberg's book, A Homemade Life... very Frenchie!

I planted French Breakfast Radishes in the garden this year. They're not as sharp as regular radishes and I really like them. Last night I put some butter on crackers and then topped the butter with radishes and salt. Yum!

Hi Debbie!!!

Two book club feedings back to back! I just know you were on your toes!!! I can't seem to muster up a group of readers here in my little corner of the world for anything! I think I'll try again when the weather gets cooler:)

Radish sandwiches sound delightful (I love that Hemminway tidbit:)

Thanks for sharing, Debbie...

P.S. My sad heart is savoring all the smiles the kids generously shared. Thank you for your soothing words, Debbie. It's good to be back:)

Haven't said hi in awhile!

I want to join a bookclub that reads kids books. :)

My Big Backyard (outdoor Wednesday)

Because I'm a nerd, I want to see how my backyard changes throughout the year. So! I'm going to take a few pictures of...
