Have you read anything great lately?

Have you read anything great lately?   So many of you are avid readers…please share your suggestions!  

My most recent fave is Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah. A sweet story of friendship and unconditional love.

Cindy LOVED The Help by Kathryn Stockett.  Amazing characters with depth and conviction in a turbulent time in the South. So well-written.

 Recently heard these are great (but haven’t read yet):

 A Pigeon and a Boy by Meir Shalev

 Between, Georgia by Joshilyn Jackson

 City of Thieves by David Benioff

Please share your recent favorites or any book you’ve loved!

 If you are looking to add another delicious recipe to your Thanksgiving meal……this is one everyone will be sure to enjoy. 

Given to me by my dear friend Debra who I am thankful for each and every day.  I made them as a trial and my kids and hubby devoured the batch.  Use your Cuisinart as your grater.
