Birthday Girls Book Club

Okay - I wanna tell you about this fun evening we had last week! It was MAGICAL! We have our group of ladies who get together to celebrate our birthdays, but now we have begun to have a monthly book club gathering also. This month we read The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.

Flori had it at her house - and she decided to put together a meal similar to what they had at the beginning of the book. So we had Roast Pig (ribs), corn, and Potato Peel Pie. Then fruit and ice cream for dessert! There were also a few things they didn't get to have in the 1940's, like Sangria, but whatever.... Then we had supper on her patio that overlooks Lake Michigan, as the sun was setting, AND we were served by two very handsome gentlemen (Steve & Clay). It was truly wonderful.

And we also were able to find some vintage hats, so we could even dress up a little.

The book is a good one by the way - it was a good read!

And here is dessert!!!

And then couldn't pick just one sunset picture!

Sounds like a lot of fun Mom! You'll have to keep me updated on what books you read while I'm gone!

Just stopping by to thank you for your visit and your comment over in my corner. I don't get around much anymore, but I certainly have enjoyed my time here. You gals sure know how to have fun and what a great bunch of husbands to help you out with your event. You've got me wanting to read the book and wanting to know what potato peel pie is.
