I started on this book at around 10 in the morning at Coffee Bean. I finished it shortly before 2 in the afternoon at a McDonalds while waiting for my best friend. About two pages before I reached Page 200, I started crying into my french fries.
My friend La Gordita had a dinner party last night and I played the part of her sous chef/pastry chef/happy dancing person and we cooked like mad from afternoon to evening. :)
Menu included: roasted pumpkin soup with sour cream and bacon, romaine and arugula salad with apples and oranges and a balsamic vinaigrette, ratatouille, lemon herb roasted chicken, and chocolate lava cake with vanilla ice cream. Drinks included club soda with lemon and orange wedges, and mango lassi.
Needless to say, we were all happily full afterwards.
My high school friends and I had a high tea party yesterday - it involved eating copious amounts of food, drinking too much tea, and watching extreme sports on TV - and it just makes me really, really thankful that I have awesome friends. :D
