Book Club – Afternoon Luncheon
Another month and another fabulous book club gathering with the wonderful ladies in my life. This past month we read the book Rules of Civility by Amor Towles, set in 1937. I initially had visions of elaborate 1930s cocktails and appetizers, with other ’30s details being incorporated. Alas, life does not always cooperate with entertaining schedules, so with basically no prep time I made a quick decision. I came up with the idea of a make-your-own sandwich bar, and complimented that with decadent dessert bars from my favorite local cafe and bakery, the Lazy Loaf and Kettle. We washed the deliciousness down with lemonade and a vodka punch, because bevvies are mandatory at book club, reading the book is optional.
