Do you remember her?


Need Some Inspiration? Try Meatballs!

Norwegian Meatballs

Food on Friday: Meatballs  demonstrated just how much variety you can have and still be meatballs.  To see all the dishes at a glance I suggest you head over to this Pinboard. I have selected a few meatballs to inspire you today.

The pic at the top is from Cooking Weekends Norwegian Meatballs – I'll be trying these for sure!

Tightrope by Simon Mawer



I almost didn't review Tightrope because it is not the sort of thing I usually read.  A colleague recommended it to me.  It is a sort of post WWII spy thriller.

The heroine is compulsively interesting.  The writing is taut and very engaging.

I found myself making time to read this book – and at the end I couldn't put it down.

So if you're in the mood for a tense but satisfying read, this may be one for you.
