Yeah, so this happened: I set out to make dinner but couldn't quite set the book aside. At all.
So, what was going to be potato salad is now ... mash, because, no the potatoes definitely overcooked.
Let that be a lesson, fellow readers: Do not read AND cook anything that depends on timing or doesn't go "ping" and switch off by itself.
Anyway,...I now have wine. (Check out the label! I could not resist. It's tasty, too.)
As for the book, I LOVE IT!!
I was so hooked on Hilary's adventure that all I could think was "This is what The 39 Steps should have been like!"
