Weekend Reads: A snowstorm is brewing!
A scan of a recipe from my grandmother--Mary--who was a great cook!
This was an odd week--I think I'll be able to say something about it next week, but it's been different for me--in a good way! I'm going to the theater tonight and am so excited!! Can't wait to be in the audience. With a snowstorm (not tooooo much snow) predicted for tomorrow, I'm excited to read a ton (cough, not yet done with my book club book and we're meeting on Sunday morning...), potentially cook something delicious, and catch brunch with the club while discussing the latest read. Should be a good one. What are you up to this week?

On a somber note, portraits of Auschwitz survivors, it's almost the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz and I find these portraits so moving. The photos where the subject is holding a photo from their pre-internment years really have me in awe--looking at those little kids and their families, and everything they've been through in their lives. Thank god so many people came together to defeat evil.
