The Sunday 

I am very slow with completing books this semester, so I thought that it would be fun to have a progress report of my reading.  This is an online reading group where all the participants set aside time to read every Sunday and blog about the experience.  I continued reading the book that I started two weeks ago.  

Since I have two papers that I need to complete for tomorrow, I only read one essay in Alone in the Kitchen with an Eggplant.  This essay was called something like "Love and Potatoes, a Reflection."  I chuckled at how much the author liked potatoes.  It was not until I returned from the grocery store that I realized I had purchased a whole bag of potatoes.  I had not had potatoes on my list or asparagus.  There is another essay in the book, "How to be an Asparagus Superhero."  After reading that essay, I did have a craving for asparagus.  When I saw them at the grocery store, I went on autopilot and put them in my cart.  Fortunately, the book also has recipes.  I am looking forward to trying some of them now that I have some key ingredients.
