The Earl’s Inconvenient Wife (Regency Collection Book 1) Ruth Ann Nordin

Here is a book that I thought was ok but it was a good read.  In this book an Earl needs a wife and he gets stuck in a marriage he doesn’t want.  They end up being the perfect match.  It was not a bad book I just felt it was predictable.

A Happily Ever After of Her Own (Ever After 1) by Nadia Lee

This book was very cute and not what you would expect.  This is about a girl that can shift in and out of fairy tales whenever she wants.  She slips into beauty and the Beast.  Of course Beauty disappears and the Beast and herself and sent back to her world to find Beauty.  It was really cute.  I like twisted fairy tales and this was right up my alley.  If you like them try this.

Life

Life is a funny thing I find.  Yesterday sucked snot with people that just wanted to fight me at every turn,  my hubby is getting sick,  and my moms dog is all winey for no reason.  It didn’t change the fact that I went to bed happy.  I knew without a doubt that today was a new day,  and my husband loves me.  As far as he winey dog.  I think he misses having someone at home with him all day.  I just need to spend some more time with him.

This is what I made for dinner tonight.  My husband loved them.  He said the only thing missing was more.  In all fairness I did put a little sauce inside.  This is one of those recipes that is really easy to make and tastes really good.  I suggest you try it.  Let me know any variations you try.

Well,  when my mom passed I thought I would get to eat my mom’s pishotta again.  Guess what my dad had that no one knew about.  I love it.  I’m now the only one in the family that has it.  Do yourselves a favor.  IF you have something in your life that a parent makes that you love learn to make it now.  It is so worth having those recipes.   If you have kids write down the recipes they love for them.  Trust me it’s funny what you miss when you lose someone.
