Good evening, blog friends! I am just checking in from the next stop on my spring break adventure—home sweet home. It’s always so nice to come back to Birmingham and be surrounded by the ones I love.
Last week, I had mentioned The American Way of Eating while talking to my dad about books on my wish-list…so he surprised me with a copy of it when I arrived home this afternoon. The book description reads:
“What if you can’t afford nine-dollar tomatoes? That was the question award-winning journalist Tracie McMillan couldn’t escape as she watched the debate about America’s meals unfold, one that urges us to pay food’s true cost—which is to say, pay more. So in 2009 McMillan embarked on a groundbreaking undercover journey to see what it takes to eat well in America. For nearly a year, she worked, ate, and lived alongside the working poor to examine how Americans eat when price matters.”
Considering how much I enjoyed reading Nickeled and Dimed and my intense interest in nutrition, I think this book will make for a fascinating read. I know what I’ll be reading on the long drive home later this week!
What books are you reading these days? Any recommendations for me? Perhaps once I graduate I’ll have time to read again!
Tomorrow marks the beginning of a wedding planning marathon—I’ve got an appointment at a bridal boutique bright and early…update to come!
