Did a little #audiocooking and #audiocleaning this morning. Now time to sit for a bit with a #bookandsnack I'm way behind on this #LMPBC #TeamCanada pick but I plan to have it finished this week. Hoping to make some progress this afternoon

While listening to my audiobook and cooking supper, I look out the window to see this.

Nope. No thank you. Who do I speak to about returns or exchanges? #IWantFallBack

Tamra Indeed! 1w
marleed That‘s just wrong! 1w

Still making my way through this fascinating read. I'm not a history buff and I typically avoid books about war, but I'm really enjoying this one. I've been #audiocooking while attempting my first vegan shepherd's pie.

#TIL There were hundreds of women who dressed as men and fought in the Civil War. Some of these women did it to spy, some did it for the cause, others did it because they had no other choice.

Addison_Reads @Sace The husband and kiddo loved it. Next time I'll add a bit more mashed potatoes. It was perfect for a drizzly autumn dinner though. Thanks for asking! 😁 2w
Sace There's no such thing as too much mashed potato! 2w

I‘m audio cooking to zen myself out! Umbridge makes me so angry!! The hubs is having all 4 wisdom teeth taken out tomorrow, this is the first type of anything he has had done since finding out he‘s a type 2 diabetic, so we are nervous but having a LARGE delicious dinner to enjoy before he will be living off of soft foods for a week! #audiocooking

ravenlee Good luck to you both! 2w
Liatrek This looks amazing! Yes, Umbridge is the worse👍🏾 2w
mdm139 I once had a principal worse than Umbridge and had many of those ridiculous rules Umbridge had hung on the wall. Needless to say I quit after one year. Turns out everyone quit after one year, even the nuns. 2w

Seekingtardis @mdm139 that‘s such a shame that people written as horrible villains are better than adults put in authority positions with young people! I‘m not sure I could have lasted a year! Lol 2w

Got some good #audiocooking in while I tried this new recipe and then enjoyed the fruits of my labor. 😋 I don't have a lot of practice cooking, so it's been hard to make time for cooking yummy meals with veggies and stuff, but I think this recipe is easy enough to fit into my schedule! Plus I made 3 servings in one go! 👍 #NFNov @Clwojick @rsteve388

Thanks to @Buechersuechtling we now have sweets for possible trick-or-treat visitors - lollipops, maoam, and some scary chocolate-y eggs.

I only wanted to get some pumpkins.

julesG @Crazeedi We live on a main road, but in Germany, and in a part of town where there are a lot of blocks of flats but hardly any single family homes. We rarely get any of the action that happens in the suburbs where everyone knows everybody. 😉 3w
Crazeedi @julesG that's a shame for you too, it was always so fun to see the little ones in costumes, it's been years since i got to enjoy. 3w
julesG @Crazeedi Well, we have carnival, which has a long tradition of costumes and parties and fun. 3w

Continuing this book with some #audiocooking. We can never follow a recipe properly so this shrimp and chicken fried rice is being cooked in two separate pans because we always overdo it 🤷🏻‍♀️ #bookanddinner

JacqMac 😂 I always end up needing two pans for rice dishes. 3w

I‘ve been avoiding this book for months/ thinking I wasn‘t up for another Holocaust story but after many trusted friends told me to read it, I caved. I‘m listening on audio and it‘s very chilling!!! The narrator is brilliant/ really bringing to life the horror & terror. I‘m always shocked by the tenacity and bravery of the men & women living along side the depravity of the Nazi‘s. Evil exists but so do angels. #AudioCooking 🎧

LeahBergen There has been some controversy around this book and its author (and especially its sequel, I guess). I guess there are quite a few big factual errors and such. Maybe don‘t read any of the articles about it until you‘re finished, though (spoilers)! 3w

Reviewsbylola I‘m kind of in the same boat. Holocaust stories are a dime a dozen so it needs to be special for me to pick it up. 3w
Cinfhen I was aware of all the controversy @LeahBergen which is definitely part of why I put off reading for so long. I‘m really mixed. I think it‘s a HUGE disservice to claim it‘s based on true events and then fabricate material but if you can bring the horrors of the Holocaust into the spotlight and get millions of readers to pick up the book then bravo. (edited) 3w
Cinfhen As an audio @Reviewsbylola it‘s bringing a new dimension to the Holocaust story plus I never thought about who had to tattoo the numbers into the “prisoners” ~ I always assumed it was a Nazi but knowing it was a fellow Jewish prisoner makes it even more horrifying 3w
LeahBergen @Cinfhen I was thinking much the same thing about the positivity of ANY exposure to keep the horrific history of the Holocaust in people‘s minds so I was sort of 🤷🏻‍♀️ about the controversy. 3w
Cinfhen I don‘t care if you screw up the transportation route but if you totally make up shit then it adds to the deniers stories so I‘m mixed too @LeahBergen btw: I‘m sipping the candy cane tea as we “speak” and it‘s delicious 😋 THANK YOU 😘😘😘I‘m hoping to read the book you sent me soon - written by an actual survivor although I believe it‘s a fictional story 3w

This recipe is so easy, and absolutely adorable! I might have to give this one a go next weekend. Sounds like a perfect recipe for #AudioCooking, especially since I‘ll want some finger foods to snack on during #24B4Monday
