    Hi Ya'll - can't join your March Meeting even though I'm reading this very "heavy" and interesting book, Behind the Beautiful Forevers ... perhaps someone can fill me in on the particulars of the discussion ... I'll be in Israel :)

      Breakfast with Buddha...I think!

      March 25, 2014

    • Marilyn R.

      Hi ladies..I am sorry. I created the meetup with the next book the day after our last meeting but I forgot to click the button to make it official. I just did it and yes, the book is Breakfast with Buddha.

  • Morna

    Hi David. I'm bringing asparagus/spinach soup and pavlova (soft meringue w/whipped cream). Thankx for offering to bring something... as to your question...
    bring something YOU like to eat. We do have a few people who can't eat gluten prods and some who are vegetarian, BUT those are only suggestions not fast guidelines/rules. (fruit? salads? dips? appetizers? cheese? dessert? wine?) Glad you can make it.

      We are glad you can make it tonight and look forward to meeting you. Morna sent some great ideas of something you could bring. Thank you for offering!
