I went to a baby shower yesterday which turned out to be rather good. It was delightful to catch up with various friends, see what gifts the mother-to-be had received (everyone bought a copy of a favourite childhood book), and I particularly enjoyed partaking of the buffet.
The lovely organisers had gone to the trouble of including vegan food, and labelling it as such. They also gave me several bags of leftovers to bring home so my plans for making lunch box dahl flew out the window. I devoted the time to reading the latest Joe Hill book instead (definitely not suitable for small children).
From top right:
- Rhubarb crumble – to be served with a spoonful of vegan vanilla yoghurt (more leftovers)
- Cherry tomatoes
- Tofu sausage chunks
- Raw carrots, pepper, and baby corn – to eat with hummus
Gentlemen prefer blondes by Anita Loos
This is an absolutely charming read. I’m liking the way Lorelei and Dorothy don’t seem to let anything stand in their way. They have no self doubt, and seem like little rays of sunshine. When something blocks them they just take a break and appear elsewhere.
