It is Friday at last, book friends! This week has been a long one for me, and I am feeling very ready to settle in to another weekend with no major plans.
On Monday, my in-laws came over for dinner, so Azula got an extra special walk with her Pittsburgh grandma and grandpa afterwards. Tuesday night was a Great British Bake Off double feature as we caught up on the last two weeks’ episodes. I’m pleased to say I do still have a single team member left in the game as we head into the semifinals.
Thursday, I worked from home and got those extra puppy cuddles. Andy and I both had books in at our local library branch as well, so we took a nice walk to get them. Azula was very excited to get another walk so much earlier in the day than usual, and very not happy when her dad went into the library without us to grab the books.
Reading wise, I’ve made some minor progress in The No-Show but mostly have been too busy for very much reading in the evenings. I’m planning to settle in and finish it over the weekend while I attend to other life maintance like laundry and meal prep, per usual.
Speaking of meal prep, the books I got from the library are cookbooks! I always forget that I could check books out to see if they actually have recipes I’m interested in before I make the committment of buying them. I love our cookbook collection, but we don’t use as many recipes out of some of them as I’d like to. I got a couple of plant-based books to investigate, since we usually only eat meat about once a week and many of our current books have entire chapters for chicken, beef, and fish. After some light Googling, I landed on Love & Lemons and Oh She Glows: For Dinner as my first ones to test. We’ll see what we end up making and whether either of these is a winner after I get the grocery list toether!
Another peaceful(ish) weekend awaits! It’s going to be a cold one so I’m sure plenty of time under the blanket with a book will be necessary.
I hope you’ve had a good week and that you’ve got a great weekend ahead. Let me know if you’ve got recommendations for any good cookbooks with a lot of meatless recipes (bonus points if they’re also light on cheese, since my husband doesn’t eat it).

I love trying out new recipes and although you can find plenty online there is something about picking up a cookbook that is more satisfying! Have a wonderful weekend!
Definitely, I love recipe blogs and cookbooks both! You have a great weekend as well!
Well, seeing as one of those is a vegan cookbook, you would not be interested in the one I am getting (a Mediterranean Diet cookbook. Supposed to help regulate blood sugar, and the food sounds good). I hope you enjoy your weekend and find many yummy dishes in your new cookbooks
We’re not vegan! We just don’t eat a lot of meat so I’m looking for books that feature more heavily with the plant based recipes. Hope you enjoy your new cookbook as well!
I think I need to invest in some good cookbooks and change things up! Have a great week, Amanda.
