Things that Currently Interest Me, June Edition

1. Egg salad on a bulkie roll with lettuce, tomato, and honey mustard

2. Up

3. Seeing Anne Hathaway perform in Shakespeare in the Park's Twelfth Night

4. My neighborhood farmer's market, where I hope to buy ingredients to make more egg salad

5. Scott Magoon's latest (and most stirring) picture book endeavor 

6. Closing my eyes and letting my story take the wheel — at least, for a while. Wheeee!

7. My Kindle, which saves my shoulder and a few trees (don't worry, I only use it for reading manuscripts, not books)

8. The new seasons of True Blood, the Closer, and Weeds

9. Peonies, preferably without ants

And you?


  1. Sorry, you can't have peonies without ants. Part of the package. One of my joys as a child was sitting under the peonies and watching the ants.

  2. Totally with you on the TrueBlood front. I can't wait until Sunday!

  3. What a coincidence! I have been craving egg salad gribiche and am making it tonight. :o) In case you're interested, here is the most fabulous (and mayonnaise-free!) recipe:


  4. Terry: I don't mind peonies with ants until I put the flowers in a vase in my living room.

    Chris: Three more days!

    Caroline: Oh my gosh, that recipe sounds delicious! I've never heard of a gribiche before; I will have to try it when I buy my next dozen at the farmers market. Thanks for the tip! : )
