Happy Halloween!! The past month was a busy one for us. We've been hosting a party or get together each week(while painting the family room built ins). Tonight is our 2nd Annual Halloween Chili Cook Off (see last year's cook off here). It was my turn to host book club this month and my book choice was the novel Where'd You Go Bernadette by Maria Semple.Where'd You Go, Bernadette is a 2012 comedy novel written by Maria Semple. The plot revolves around an agoraphobic architect and mother named Bernadette Fox, who goes missing prior to a family trip to Antarctica. It is narrated by her 15-year-old daughter Bee Branch. It is told in a series of documents (emails, memos, transcripts, etc.) with the occasional interlude by Bee.Wikipedia
I had a little fun with my guests and dressed up as Bernadette. Thanks to G's mom for letting me borrow the perfect vest!
We usually try and match our book club food with the book. The book is set in Seattle and they do mention many restaurants and meals. I decided to make Yellow Pepper Risotto based on a mushroom risotto from the book.blog. It was a fun night of book discussion, laughter and food (oh and wine!). I highly recommend this book!!
Let's keep in touch!
