So on the way home yesterday, I finished Nora Roberts' The Search. It was a good audio book, as far as I enjoyed the main character, Fiona, a woman who escaped serial murderer and is trying to rebuild her life. However, a copycat murderer is out and he's apparently after her. The story was good, I liked Finoa and enjoyed learning about her profession (dog trainer), and I really did feel the suspense and enjoyed several of the other main characters. However, I gave it 2.5/5 - the story was just too slow for me and while there were a few parts that had me very engaged, a lot of the time I was just waiting for something to happen and the end was a bit anti-climatic for me. I guess it was less of a mystery and more of a character study - I didn't know that going in so my expectations weren't met. For a character study - 4/5, for a mystery/thriller like I thought it was, the 2.5/5 stands.
I also have a recipe to share - a new one, one I made up on my own! I rarely do this, and truth be told, this recipe is a blend of a coupe of my recipes. But me and Austin were very happy with it. Here goes:
Chicken Tortilla Casserole
Makes 6 Servings
A Kelly original - I know! Yay! :)
Nutritional Information: 388 calories, 46 carbs, 6 fat grams and 29 protein grams.
And in somewhat food/recipe-related news, I wanted to share the sweetest shout out! As many of you know I heart some 0% Fage yogurt. I use it in lots of my recipes, especially curries! So I noticed a hellacious spike over at Healthified Kitchen and this was why!
How sweet were they? I of course had to comment and thank them for the adorable shout out. I mean really - who doesn't love a shout out?!
Q: Has a company you adore ever given you a shout out? If not, who totally owes you a shout since you're OBSESSED with their product(s)? :) Cabot, you know, my besties over in Vermont with the fabulous cheese, they gave me one on Facebook for one of my recipes - love them, too!! I think that diet pepsi could easily give me a shout. And skyy vodka. And crystal light. And laughing cow. There are so many peeps i'm loyal too! LOL
Q: Have you ever read a Nora Roberts book? This is my second one - I listened to her J.D. Robb book (one of a series) and liked it better than this one. Although, truth be told, hard to compare- SO different!
