My Weekend: Shop, Books and Fruit Salad

Saturday is always my grocery shopping day. And usually I head to the store between 12pm-2pm. But we started late today at 4pm because I had to wait for the car. So while I waited, I spent most of those hours reading a couple more chapters from One Reckless Summer by Toni Blake - double yum! It is a reckless, hot summer reading. A bad boy, a nice girl, a hot steamy fling and illegal law situation -- what more can you ask for the summer? *grin*

When it times to go shopping, I walk to the books section (you didn't think I would just pass by it and not look - did ya? *grin*) and browse around the shelves to see if there anything new. There wasn't much of any books that I really WANT. So I look around a little and take a second (it felt lilke the tenth times) glance at some of the books I kept returning back to, every time I return to the store the next weekend. And couldn't make up my mind if I want to get it or not. I finally decided to pick up Charmed and Dangerous by Toni McGee Causey (see book cover above post) She is "new to me author" and she is from Louisiana (my state)! From what I read at the front cover - it said that if readers like the humor of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series than they will like the heroine, Bobbie Faye character. There be two more Bobbie Faye books coming in the next two months (July & August). Anyone read Charmed and Dangerous? If so, what your take on it? :)

Most of the upcoming books I'm looking forward to for it release street dates, will be in July. So..I'm waiting ;) But starting tomorrow, on Sunday, I will be starting joint-reading on Silver Falls by Anne Stuart with my dear blog friend Melody and Alice (Monday their time - oversea). This should be fun!

Tonight, I'm planning to make fruit salad to go along with Grilled Chicken and Veggie (white meat chicken, veggie and Parmesan sauce) skillet pasta. The fruit salad should be easy to make, but if anyone have read my previously post - I normally don't cook a lot. My friend Annie gave me the recipes to make this easy fruit salad. What good about it is she have some secret ingredients add into it to give you a unusual but good taste to it. Although when I first try it, there were too much pink water (from the black cherry I used, the wrong kind!) all over the fruits. I kept asking mom if it tasted alright, despite all that pink liquid onto it. She tried not to snicker at me but said instead "It taste good". I gave her the-are-you-just-saying-that look on my face. I can tell she was snickering ;) I'm going to re-try it again tonight and hope that it turn out right this time. I mean how can someone mess up making fruit salad? No one, right? ;) :)

Hope everyone have a good weekend! Happy Reading Everyone! :)
