Bookish (and not so bookish) Thoughts

01. Woohoo! Can’t wait to start trying recipes from Hetty McKinnon’s new book, Family (her first book, Community, is one of my most-used cookbooks and her roasted beetroot, turnip, edamame, radish and wasabi mayonnaise salad is life-changing).

02. I’m listening to Clare Wright’s The Forgotten Rebels of Eureka (it’s terrific) and just discovered that there’s a TV series in production (think Outlander meets Deadwood as opposed to All the Rivers Run).

03. “The food universe has thrown cruffins, milo martinis and turducken benedict at you and it still wasn’t enough.” It’s not just the sandwich that’s fabulous, it’s the helpful details included in the recipe.

04. Thinking I need some sort of Cider House Rules project… (a re-read given that I’ve just finished My Movie Business and the film is on Netflix).

05. Feierabend, toska and sisu – I love this collection of words.

06. That combination of sad and happy-sad that gets me every time…

07. Grammar purity is one big Ponzi scheme.

08. A dear friend gave me this today and it’s basically the perfect shade of yellow.

  1. My Dad had a book called The Art of Writing by WJ Merry. It has his name and 1946 inside so I’m guessing it was a text for teachers college. The point is that all the rules are in there, written down and a couple of years later dad was out enforcing them in one-teacher rural schools; 20 years later he was an inspector and teachers throughout the district taught those rules or else; and 10 years after that he was Director of Primary Curriculum and all Victoria … Well actually, I think he’d given up by then.

  2. I don’t have kids and I’m a grown woman, but I really want to make myself a rainbow cheese toastie tonight. lol
