The First Stone

From the Goodreads website:  "A young, beautiful Jewish-American woman is willingly recruited by the Israeli secret service to seduce and marry a rich Saudi in order to live in his country as a mole. But as Lisa Cooper waits to be called into action in a land much different from her home, she finds herself falling in love with her handsome, intelligent husband - even though he already has a wife. Lisa learns that she must live in the family compound, spend her days in a harem, and protect herself against her brother-in-law, who suspects she is a spy. As the political situation in the Middle East heats up, Lisa must protect her identity at all costs and avoid the traps set by her brother-in-law to expose her - a situation that would lead to her certain death. When she is finally called to duty by Mossad, she's torn between betraying the husband she has grown to love and the people to whom she has pledged allegiance."

Oh boy!  I loved this book.  I was a nervous wreck at the end wondering what would happen.  I am going to have to see what else John Briley has written.

Baklava

We had another Baking Day and we baked Baklava.  It was much easier than I thought it would be.  Of course, I didn't do most of the work.  Eileen is brushing the phyllo sheets with melted butter, lots of butter.  This is not a low calorie treat.

 

We made a walnut cinnamon filling.  Yum.  This picture is after we poured honey syrup into the pan and we're waiting for the baklava to soak up all that sweetness.

 Another successful and delicious day.  Thanks Lois for sharing your recipe with us.

Aren't these the cutest little pea pods?

 

Just a little bit bigger and I can start eating them.

Simple Baby Blanket

I haven't posted about the Baby Blanket in a while and I actually have progress to show.  

 

Finished with five of the seven colors and I'm working on color six.  I don't want to get too excited but I may get this finished before the baby shows up.
