[AtoZ memes] Writing Reviews When Stressed + my week in books

Well summer is trying to make an appearance here! It warmed up a lot. Nice at night at least. And it's doing lovely things to the garden which is fun to watch.

It was a fairly quiet week here. Cleo was making me nervous (video here) so I skipped the food pantry and stuck close to home. Her vet agreed she needs to be on steroids full time now instead of just for big flare ups. So she'll get them daily. Fingers crossed we can nip this in the bud.

[AtoZ] Vegan Pulled Pork Sandwiches

I'm always looking to try new things. Jackfruit is one of my new-ish items. It's an interesting fruit. Can be savory and have the texture of pork when unripe and then when ripe it's sweet and apparently peach-ish in texture.

I've only had green jackfruit so far. I decided to make a pulled pork sandwich for my V post. And, yall, it was pretty dang good! Even with one little blip recipe-wise.

[AtoZ] Unbroken Cowboy (Gold Valley #5) by Maisey Yates

Well these two were a handful.
The Gist: A devastating rodeo accident has left Dane's body and future in shambles. It's also put him in Bea's reach...finally. She's had a crush on him for decades and is dealing with her own bit of uncertainty about the future and trying to figure out what to do next. Bonus if it includes Dane. 
So yes. Serious. These two were a handful. A. Hand. Full. lol

[AtoZ] 4.5 stars -- Spirit of the Knight by Debbie Peterson

Oh my! Spirit of the Knight was a delightfully wonderful surprise. It had been ages since I read a ghostly romance. Add in Scottish knights? Oh yes, I was in!
The Gist: Mariah has been tasked with painting a castle for an art exhibit. When she arrives she finds it's a herd of 700+ year old ghostly Scottish knights. Including one that she's somehow been sketching since she was a child.

[AtoZ/memes] Reviews That Started It All! Oh, My! + my week in books

Happy Almost Easter!

This week was somewhat quiet here. I had the USO and Food Pantry. Both were pretty slow but went well. I got my 1000+ hour pin at the USO (I've officially volunteered 1155.25 hours). So that was neat.

I decided to start sharing my couponing adventures on the blog!

My Shopping Totals This Week
I Paid $13.54 for $110.54 Worth of Groceries

It was a super Quiet Week here shopping. Things were going on, deals were 2 weeks instead of 1 (due to Easter), crazy weather. So not much shopping.
