Dewey's Readathon: Hour 3

Eating: a delicious lunch prepared by the boyfriend - pesto and green tea salmon with rice and smashed potatoes.
Reading: Within a Budding Grove (In Search of Lost Time, #2) - Marcel Proust
Pages read: 17. I know, lame. I already said that I average 10 pages per hour when reading Proust. The man was dense!

Onto the mini-challenge:

Book Appetit! hosted by Book Journey

This is fitting for the book I'm currently reading:
1. Within a Budding Grove - Marcel Proust
2. Menu:
  Starters: Boeuf Mode en Gelée (see the recipe here) and caviar, for the dinner with Norpois and Bergotte, respectively.
  Main Course: Nev'York Ham (see the recipe here) with a side dish consisting mainly of asparagus (prepared by an allergic domestic, if possible, as Françoise would have liked it).
  Dessert: a massive chocolate cake with red fruits (see recipe here) and madeleines (see recipe here).
  Beverages: I'm sorry to say we're only allowed to drink linden tea (yuk!), to achieve a truly Proustian atmosphere.
  Music: an inexistent perfect sonata that makes you remember times past.
  Decoration: chinoiseries and Louis XVI furniture, for sure.

  1. Good luck with the Proust, and that lunch looks fantastic!

    1. Thanks! The Proust is actually a year-long endeavor. Not really material for a readathon, so I started another book :)
