March Book Club




At my book club, we always start the evening gathered around the table as one, enjoying a lovely dinner prepared by our hostess. As the evening progresses, we move to the living room, taking our glass of wine and sit in a circle for book discussion. The circle includes everyone in the discussion and everyone is welcome to give their opinion. Sometimes it gets loud, as everyone begins to talk at once, but there is still respect for each other. Of course, we have a varied group, with differing views and our discussions take us to interesting places, that may have little to do with the book. But, that is the beauty of a group of strong women, with a long history of friendship. There is security in knowing that words will not be judged, everyone is heard and at the end of the night, we walk away as we started.


Our hostess served a yummy and simple dessert that I wanted to share. It was beautiful, light and perfect for the first day of spring. She simply placed two different scoops of pretty sherbet ice cream in a bowl, added fresh fruit and then drizzled creme de cassis (black currant liqueur) over it all. Served with a coconut macaroon, in a pretty bowl, it was a lovely, elegant dessert that is easy to put together when you are hosting company in your home.

Have a wonderful weekend!
