The good news is, I’m writing again. Slowly but daily. This is good. Eventually, I’ll have a new title to promote with real recipes. Though, all things considered, sometimes times these “off topic” posts can be interesting–at least when y’all respond. There are times they break my brain as I try to come up with something that might be entertaining. So, repeats. Who else rereads favorite books and series? 🙋🏼♀️
In my case, I’ll marathon a series every time there’s a new release. Considering my brain resembles the meme over there on the right, I need reminders of plot, characters, and settings. Then there are times I simply reread a series for a variety of reasons–nothing else has caught my attention, something popped up that reminded me of a series and I get an urge…and there are others but hey, boring.
Curently, I’m listening to Shelly Laurenston’s Pride series. Why? I’ll try to make the story short. I had an Audible coupon. It was about to expire. I kept searching for a book to buy but nothing jumped out. Then I tumbled onto MY KIND OF TOWN, an off-shoot short novel by Laurenston based in her Pride world. I’d read quite awhile ago and with the coupon it was only 65 cents. Hey, bargain. So I listened to it after finishing Kim Harrison’s DEAD WITCH WALKING. First time for me. But that’s a different story. Anyway, after finishing up TOWN yesterday, I decided to meander through the Pride series. Laurenston always makes me laugh.
Now to the treats portion of this post. I’m a sucker for Hint of Lime Tostitos. Ymmers! I try not to snack on them because I’ll eat the whole bag, saving them as a side with burgers or other sandwiches. But…over the weekend, I was hungry, it was long time until dinner so I started rooting around. And I decided to make cheese nachos with shredded fiesta cheese and those Lime Tostitos. Chips on a plate, cheese all over the top, about 20 seconds in the microwave. Should I confess that I fixed seconds? Oh, yeah. They were that yummy!
So that’s today’s discussion. What book/series do you reread–especially if it’s on a yearly basis? And do you experiment with “odd” snacks? If so, what did you make?
