my book club thought roald dahl'sthe witches fitting for october. the witches is one of those books i can't believe i somehow skipped over in my childhood and i'm so glad to have finally read it. i'm finding that reading (especially re-reading) children's books as an adult has its charms.
we gathered to discuss over brunch at hundred acres. it was the coldest day we've had this season and curling up by the window with hot coffee and good conversation was just the thing for a brisk autumn sunday. i ordered the savory bread pudding (goat cheese, sage, spinach, and poached eggs) and it quickly became one of my favorite dishes.
