I love book groups. I just got back from meeting with a bunch of lovely, smart, funny women in Redlands. Not only did they have great questions and insights to share about my book--the host also served an amazing array of treats. A platter of gorgeous strawberries with homemade lime curd for dipping. Pineapple/habanero jelly over cream cheese, served with little toasts. Bowls of spiced nuts. And, to top it all off at the end of the evening--an ice cream torte, vanilla layered with homemade lemon curd (two curds in one night!) on top of a rich, nutty crust. Absolutely luscious. I am buzzing now, all sugared up. A delicious evening for both mind and body.
