Friday Finds! Girl With a Dragon Tattoo, Kindle, Rainbow Cookies, Canning

Hey There! Happy Friday. Hope your St. Patrick’s Day was lovely. We had corned beef, cabbage, carrots, and (bread machine made) rye bread to celebrate!

Wasn’t sure if I was going to get this blog entry done today or not. Which wouldn’t have been a major travesty, except it would have been the first time that a Friday Finds wasn’t published since this little bit blog was created. Can you imagine?!

Anyway, here are my Friday Finds:

We’ll start out with two things that I’m loving right now:

  • Girl With a Dragon Tattoo — Oh my gosh, you guys MUST read this!! Go out, right now, and borrow or buy or whatever it takes to get you this book — this is a gripping read set in Sweden and it’s got mystery, romance, intrigue, a real thriller. It’s the first book in a three part series and my plan is to read them one right after the other.
  • Speaking of reading, thanks in part, to my growing another year old I’m now the proud owner of Amazon’s Kindle — this is an electronic book reader and it’s amazing. I’m a big fan of books (have a masters in library science as evidence), but the Kindle is so light and portable and there’s no glare. If you are at all interested in e-readers, give this one a go – you won’t be disappointed.
  • We’ve made progress on our vegetable garden. Yes, we purchased a raised bed kit (!!!), but there is a tremendous amount that is still left to learn. I liked this post from Amalah talking about her vegetable container garden.
  • Good Life Eats highlighted these St. Patrick’s Day Rainbow Slice and Bake Cookies. I think these are adorable. We’ve got another birthday coming up and I’m thinking these might make a pretty favor using the birthday girl’s favorite colors.
  • We’re a little Good Life Eats heavy this week, but I wanted to share their little tutorial on how to put two toned frosting on cupcakes — very helpful. I think this is the method I may use for the upcoming birthday. I’ve been given strict instructions about the need for both pink AND purple cupcakes!
  • The Kitchn has a group of links/pictures/tutorials that you might find interesting if you like to can.

There you have it — Friday Finds for the week. Hope your weekend is a good one!

Thanks for reading!

    Those were great books. I was sad to get to the end of the last knowing there were no more.
