I had lunch today with my favorite Young Women’s leader (or youth leader period, for that matter) of all time. Camey Hadlock is just an amazing person, and I enjoyed every minute with her. The time just flew.
Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to execute the lunch menu I had in my head, but I did get around to making a Dorie Greenspan recipe: Torteau de Chevre. It’s basically a cross between a cheesecake and a souffle wrapped in the best sweet tart dough I’ve ever had. I grated some lemon zest into the recipe for added zing, and I just loved it. I wish I could cut and paste Dorie’s essay from her cookbook in here just because she wrote about this cake so delightfully, but I’ll just have to content myself with my own little picture.
Then I napped. By the time I finally got the girls bathed, it was 5 pm. Feeling guilty, I took the girls to Barnes and Noble to pick out books. Yesterday I bribed Lydia to let me clean out her ears with the promise of a new book, so we made good on that promise today.
Abe had to go to a work dinner tonight, so I took the girls to Smashburger for dinner and milkshakes.
We got home at the same time as Abe, and then we all vegged on the couch watching Winnie the Pooh until the girls’ bedtime.
I need to get a start on my new book club’s book: The Professor and the Madman. It’s about how a man locked up in an criminal asylum for the insane provided most of the definitions we find in the Oxford English Dictionary. So exciting!
