I made a tortilla española and Austin made his amazing Boursin crositinis. Other folks brought sangria, patatas aïoli (I've already scored the recipe for that one!), and a spicy cheese dip and chips. Of the six of us, only one didn't get into the book, The Shadow of the Wind. Several people mentioned that it wasn't the sort of book they'd normal select but they really enjoyed it. I had a hard time with discussion because I had also read the prequel and started on the sequel so it was kind of a blur for me. Our next pic is World War Z.
Stinky bolted as soon as the doorbell rang but amazingly, emerged to take a look at things later on. Our Croat friend spoke to him in Croatian, assuring us cats love Croatian, and sure enough Stinky listened without making a beeline to safety.
I'm looking forward to our next book group meeting and a few other social events that are starting to make their way onto our calendar. Finally, I know it's still two months away, but I am really excited for my parents to visit for Thanksgiving.
