Busy, busy day ahead of me... Not too busy to watch, just for a few minutes, the sun create steam as it dries the roof outside my office window. Nice.
Tonight I'm hosting book club. I'll make three different kinds of pizza: sausage and peppers; carmelized onion, feta and mozzarella; and pizza Marguerite (crushed tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and basil), and a salad. I couldn't host the night we discussed my pick, John Grisham's Playing for Pizza and we met at a restaurant, so I offered to host tonight for my friend, Donna who chose Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen. I must confess I didn't read it. I tried, I really tried, but it was like swallowing glass shards. I'll try to get to Spark Notes this afternoon. (Yes, an English teacher using Spark Notes :) SAY NOTHING!!)
I have a lot of cleaning to do before I start cooking. Daughter, baby and nanny are not here today so I can do this unimpeded.
