From the Goodreads website: "Christine Nilsson and her husband, Marcus, are desperate for a baby. Unable to conceive, they find themselves facing a difficult choice they had never anticipated. After many appointments with specialists, endless research, and countless conversations, they make the decision to use a donor.
Two months pass and Christine is happily pregnant. but one day, she is shocked to see a young blond man on the TV news being arrested for a series of brutal murders-and the blond man bears an undeniable and uncanny resemblance to her donor.
Delving deeper to uncover the truth, Christine must confront a terrifying reality and face her worst fears. Riveting and fast-paced, with the depth of emotionality that has garnered Lisa Scottoline legions of fans, Most Wanted poses an ethical and moral dilemma: What would you do if the biological father of your unborn child was a killer?"
I thought I wasn't really going to like this book, but I got sucked in. In fact, I almost had to cheat and read the ending before I was finished.
I had a cooking day with my friends and our plan was applesauce. Eileen and Janet trekked out to the orchards and picked up a bushel of apples. Eileen and the other Eileen peeled and peeled, Janet chopped, and I supervised. I'm good at that.
We added the apples and spices to a pot to simmer.
The recipe is from Food in Jars but we only used half the amount of spices. We also made a batch with no spices that was baked in the oven.
Lois was busy making a really tasty apple pie. Sorry, no pictures. We gobbled it up too fast. Here's the finished applesauce.
We each took home about 8 cups of applesauce to eat or freeze. Another tasty and productive cooking adventure with my friends.
I've been away at the American Needlepoint Guild Seminar in New Orleans. I took two classes and the first one was Casbah Revisited by Terry Dryden. Here's the progress after the first day.
and progress after the second day
I loved this class and Terry was a great instructor. I would love to take another class with her again. This is going to be a great piece when I finish it.
