Bonus Book Club February 23, 2011

Filed under: Life's Musings — Angie S. @ 9:20 pm

Last night we had a bonus book club meeting.  We usually meet once a month but we had an opportunity to be featured in a book by author Judy Gelman on book clubs and what they bring to eat that relates to the books they review.  The book we chose to review last night was Olive Kitteridge.  There were many different foods mentioned throughout the book so we had plenty of dishes to choose from.  Sheila made Beef Stew (which was awesome!) and bread warm from the oven.  Sharon brought crab stuffed mushrooms, Susan brought red wine, donut holes, olive cheese balls and carrot soup and I added meatballs and vanilla ice cream with butterscotch sauce.

I do have to say the book was awful and reading it was a chore, but the book reviews we have always make up for that.  I love discussing and sharing ideas with the others in our club.  They can make me see a book in a whole new light.  Often I’ll leave liking the book a little bit better than I initially did.  Unfortunately that was not the case with this one!  :0)
