bookclub...

thursday night i hosted book club at my house. we read "room" by emma donaghue, most of us liked it i think even though it was pretty dark and depressing but it made for a really great disscusion.

i decided to make roasted turky and havarti sandwiches with all the fixings, ina's tomato feta pasta salad (i had the last of ann's garden fresh tomatoes, so good) and pumpkin chocolate chip cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. it was such a great night. thanks to everyone who came :)



i used my readers digest books as platters and put spider webs on them. it was very spooky...

all i expected and more.
those cupcakes were amazing, and the tomato feta salad, so good! i googled the recipe and made it over the weekend, but yours was way better..

I was so sad to miss Book Club. Silly baby just had to come super early and ruin it for me! ;) I heard the evening was really fun.

Oh my goodness - I want to be a part of this book club!! Beautiful!

I hosted book club last week too. And I made chocolate chip cookies. And that is all. I obviously need to try a little harder!

(but they were really good cookies)
