I am presently reading a book called The Deed of Paksenarrion by Elizabeth Moon. I can really recommend it if you read that kind of book. The author was recommended to me by an Australian writer and I am enjoying it. The book I got hold of is three books in one which makes for a rather big paperback to hold and read. I am not yet sure what else she has written but will be researching it soon.
I have just seen a segment on Good Morning America about Nathan Sawaya who is now a famous artist making sculptures out of Lego pieces. He has exhibitions all over the place and sells these pieces for a lot of money. He just gave the four hosts of GMA a piece each, which he made specially for them. You should have a look at the web site here there are pictures of all the sculptures he has made, some of which are very clever, but don't appeal to me, others, like the bear, I think are delightful. I remember when I visited Disney Village (believe that is called Downtown Disney these days) and saw all the Lego characters on display there, I was absolutely fascinated. Some of the items are so lifelike. The serpent on the right was one of my favourites. The dinosaurs on the left are great too, there is also a space ship and a helicopter on display, all made out of Lego. Not to mention a Lego family just positioned there like a real family might be. Can you imagine the patience it must take to build these things. I don't really remember playing with Lego myself, but I know most kids do at some time in their lives. I remember playing with a building set belonging to someone else where you had real tiny bricks, window frames and blueprints and actually built miniature houses. You could then soak them if you wished to dismantle them so that the "glue" dissolved. I have never seen that set before or since.
We went to M & M's again yesterday to buy some more Chateaubriand and decided to try one of the stuffed chicken breasts they do. We got the ones with Portabella mushroom stuffing. I'm not actually sure it was Portabella, unless it was baby Bellas, or Crimini, but they were pretty good. Its funny we haven't shopped in M & M's for years. Once upon a time their steaks were "tenderised" with something and Matt didn't like the taste. They seem not to do that any more.
One weekend a friend of mine and I both cooked the same recipe which we had got from different sources. She posted her version on our cookery group. This is what she came up with. I don't remember where either of us got this recipe, sorry about that. When I made the recipe, we couldn't find vegetable cream cheese, which would be healthier, but settled for regular cream cheese.

Have a great day.
