Book Club Movie Night

My book club came over to see my movie of our Italy trip. We began with champagne, ham-gruyere palmiers and parmesan -paprika crackers.

Dinner was simple and easy. We had a huge green salad with lettuce, arugula, peppers, red onion, tomatoes (which I picked out of mine), croutons, and grilled chicken breasts with a pomegranate vinaigrette. We had a simple tortellini salad with tomatoes, basil and mozzarella, and garlic bread.

We tried to compile a list of all the books we've read in the past 2 1/2 years. We came up with 26 or so, and wrote them down. We watched my Umbria movie. For dessert, we had a fig jam-marscapone tart, and everyone got a jar of Fig-Amaretto jam to take home. We decided we needed a name. We became the Fig Jam Tarts!

Next month we will discuss The Glassblower of Murano by Marina Fiorato. Whoo Hoo, we are going back to Italy!

I was going to ask if you accept long-distance book club members--but then I realized I wouldn't be able to partake of the food.

Sharon:

Love the name -- if you all played musical instruments, you could be the Fig Tarts Jam! ;-)

Barb Cabot:

Love the name! Your book club members are so lucky!

sandrac:

Palma, that looks fabulous. And I love the title of your upcoming book, I'll be curious to hear if you enjoy it!
