Thursday Thoughts

This weekend we are going to see The Avengers Endgame movie and then Sunday night, the big Game of Thrones battle at Winterfell. Gah! I don't want anyone to die! Except Thanos. And Cersei. I stocked up on tissues in my purse for the movie and put a fresh box near the couch for Sunday night.
We had a quiet Easter, here at our house with my parents. The meal was easy, too. We "cheated" with Bethel Bakery paska (with raisins) and cupcakes/cookies for dessert. SP grilled a leg of lamb and we had tomatoes with mozzarella & balsamic plus Spring Vegetables with Warm Vinaigrette. Not a lot of work.
Easter morning SP made popovers. Either we buy milk and then don't use it or we don't buy it and then we want/need it. This time we had some but hadn't opened it and it was over a week old. So to use up some of it, he made some popovers. There were yummy and popped nicely this time.

What We're Eating:

  • Leftover Easter food 
  • Meat sauce (from the freezer) and pasta
  • Dessert: Easter cupcakes and cookies

What We're Watching:

  • Game of Thrones. Episode 2 didn't have any action, but there was lots of interaction between the characters, everyone finally together at Winterfell. And Jon told Dany the truth about his parents. She didn't look happy. I'm starting to not like Dany. I'm starting to hope her dragon eats her.
  • We started Season 5 of Bosch on Amazon. Still good.
  • Killing Eve. That lipstick Villanelle put in Eve's bag. Yikes!

What I'm Reading:

  • The magazine pile finally just toppled over. The top of the pile started to slide sideways and then everything slid onto the floor. A slow motion disaster. I'm trying to read them, but every day something interferes. Well, OK, sometimes I let myself get distracted by reading Game of Thrones theories. And sometimes I have an accidental nap in the afternoon. And sometimes I can't stop playing Wordscapes. 
  • I read Broken Bone China by Laura Childs. It was enjoyable, light & easy reading. Somehow I requested the large print version! I wore my glasses anyway but gosh the print was huge!
  • I also am flipping through a couple cookbooks I borrowed from the library. I need dinner inspiration!
