Book Worm? Me?

When I first saw that I had been tagged with a Bookworm meme, I laughed out loud. Literally.

Me? Surely you jest.

Because you know, I just don't read very much. In fact, the last book I read was such a momentous occasion that it rated its own blog post.

But, alas, no. No jesting here. Sarah at Real Life tagged me with a Bookworm meme.

The directions on this meme are very unique directions: find the book closest to you, turn to page 56, and type in the fifth sentence plus a couple more after that.

Sarah's was The Sacrifice, by Robert Whitlow. When she tagged me, she tried to guess at what kind of book would be closest. She was right. It was a cookbook.

Courses: A Culinary Journey. My parents brought me this cookbook from their Mediterranean cruise a couple of years ago. It is signed by the Executive Chef from the ship. Page 56-57 are a full page color photo. So I had to go on to page 58. Understandably, sentences 5-7 are pretty boring and make no sense when taken out of context.

"Add the onions and saute. Add the garlic and peppers and saute 4 minutes more. Add the remaining ingredients and stir well."

Now, if you'd like to see the entire recipe, go here.

So, now I'm supposed to tag a few people with this. I am not even going to pretend to know what kind of book they'll have handy...

Play along if you'd like.


And if you guys have already done this, I'm sorry. THAT's how behind on blog reading I am. :)

How did you know Sea Scallops are my FAVE??!!! You DO read... you just read cookbooks!

Sarah said...

Also, it still tickles me pink that you used my blog design on your recipe blog! I knew I was creating it for someone special, I just didn't know who!

That cracks me up that yours was a cookbook! Too funny!

OK- mine is posted. BTW- I read The Shack after hearing about it on the radio and then reading about it on your blog. Great book and I have passed it along to several people who are in the midst hard life situations right now.
