. . . let's Merengue!
Yes, Mollusc and I made meringues today. Not being the type to let anything sans chocolate be considered a proper dessert, we chopped up a bunch of semisweet choolate and stirred it in. :) I have to say that they are delicious!
Speaking of Mollusc, how would you like the chance to make an impression on a young, moldable child's life? I'm putting together the year's reading lists for all of the kids and am taking suggestions mostly for Mollusc. At 11.5, she reads and enjoys many kinds of fiction and nonfiction, lately coming more and more from the adult section at the library. She reads and comprehends at a college level (right now she's reading my review book and laughing as she goes) though we are still avoiding really heavy stuff on the socio/emotional level. I think this would be a great time for me to compile a broad list of titles from which we can choose over the next year, and hopefully even have more left over for the next year or two. And maybe you all will suggest things that might otherwise get overlooked. Feel free to suggest books from any genre you like. My one caveat - she has a high disregard for books with cruelty to animals, or those in which the main animal dies at the end ("Old Yeller" is right out but "No More Dead Dogs" would get a nod of approval) and is not a fan of anthropomorphic animals. (not that many older children/adult books have those)
Busy Thursday looms large, but for now I'm going to watch I ♥ Huckabees and then read more Outlander #2.
Maybe the next dance/food will be salsa. ^_^
