Book Club Adores Jeeves
Monthly book club was a lively affair yesterday as we ate British foods and discussed the comedy of P.G. Wodehouse. I took an amaretto liqueur cake with strawberries and whipped cream, such as Bertie Wooster might eat with his posh friends at the club or race track. Cynthia brought shepherd's pie, Brenda brought cucumber sandwiches, Constance brought quiche, Vee brought Melba toast with smoked Gouda cheese... everything was delightful! We are so fortunate that the library rents us the room for free and allows us to brew tea and share supper during our discussions. Many references were made to history, past books we've read like the butler in "Remains of the Day," WWI leaders, "Downton Abbey," authors like A.A. Milne, and our own comedic parallels in life.
