Oh July, how quickly you’ve gone. It has been a busy but very enjoyable month: a visit from our good friend P., sunny days and reading in the park, Yorkshire, a great meal out with friends we met last year in Alaska, fun times volunteering, a trip to the theatre, and lots more. As I am off to Canada tomorrow morning (!!!!), this post is coming a wee bit early.
◌ On the death of American seafood. A good read, and the book looks good too.
◌ “Every trendy restaurant menu” — at least for London, this is dead on.
◌ And while we’re on the subject, the craft beer guide to NS! 🙂
◌ Marinades from Bill Granger.
◌ Build your own gin + tonic bar.
◌ “Can I really not manage a brief subway ride without textual support? Is that normal?” Took the words out of my mouth, Zadie.
◌ Books coming over the next 6 months. I’m particularly looking forward to Mantel, French, The Kills (already out here in the UK), and Atwood.
And with that, I’m on holiday, and the blog will be on hiatus for a couple of weeks! 😀 😀 😀
