For the last few years I have been whining about not being able to find a book club to join. I have finally found one that will have me and we are meeting for the first time in two weeks. The book is "Water for Elephants" by Sara Gruen. I purchased it sometime in early August and didn't pick it up until this weekend. I ready the Prologue but wasn't feeling it. So I put it down. Panic set in....how could I not read the first book for this new book club? I figured I probably would get kicked out. Way to go Big Momma. But last night I decided to give it another chance. I am so glad that I did. I couldn't put it down. I'm hoping to have it finished before the end of the weekend.
Anyway, here is the movie quote for the week:
"I have a head for business and a body for sin."
This is from a movie that was made in the 80s, but I didn't see it until a few years ago. With all its big hair, blue eyeshadow and shoulder pads, how could you go wrong?

I have joined a group called Daring Bakers. Each month the DBers send out a baking challenge. Everyone involved must bake the recipe as is, with only the preapproved substitutions. Then we all post the results on our blogs as well as the DB blog which is super duper top secret.
That's right folks, Members Only!
September's challenge was cinnamon rolls. They turned out quite good and they were very easy. I was hoping for a challenge but then realized it was probably better that my first attempt wasn't something too complicated. If you would like a recipe or a dozen, just let me know. For more information on Daring Bakers and to see the blog roll, please click here visit http://daringbakersblogroll.blogspot.com/.
If you would like the recipe, you can find it at my new friend Pip in the City's blog at http://pipinthecity.wordpress.com/.
