As you can see Seamus Cuddy (yes I named my statue), is a little wet but has had plenty of small snails to keep him company. We have had quite a bit of rain which started last Wednesday and has kept up ever since. I am not really complaining, everything is green and fluffy and I am sure I will wish for rain when the sun comes burning through.
Last week I noticed that a used bookstore opened up in town. My daughter had a friend visit over the weekend and it turned out that her grandmother owned the bookstore and her mother works there. Since I had to drop her off there I took that as the stars were in alignment. I walked away with a handful of books and you will be surprised to know only one cookbook. I see more trips there in the future.
A Word of Breads by Dolores Casella 1966. Oh my gosh! Bread recipes galore. I was in bread heaven. I flipped through and made her Onion Rye Bread p.80-81. Very good! I made DH a sandwich with it when he arrived from Missouri last night and he asked for another one made from it for lunch today. With 294 pages of bread recipes it will take me a while to bake through this book but it tastes like a winner already. I paid $3 for my copy but I think on Amazon used I have seen them for $.29.
