The Dorito Effect: The Surprising New Truth About Food and Flavor22889816

Since my last update I have finished reading The Dorito Effect: The Surprising New Truth about Food and Flavor by Mark Schatzker. I found this to be informative and mostly enjoyed it. I did skip some parts because as a vegan it was hard to listen to him go on about how chicken taste and even had a dream about me eating chicken which was kind of horrifying. I finished another food health book called A Bone to Pick by Mark Bittman and it is about farming and GMO’s. I also listened to this on audio book because that is my favourite way to consume non-fiction. Continue reading “Monday Musings: March 4, 2019”

Tag Tuesday: The Cats and Books Tag

Happy Tag Tuesday!

This book tag was created by Spinster’s Library. I have created a link to her channel so you can watch her video. I love all animals and have had both dogs and cats growing up but I am more of a cat person than a dog person.

1. Tell us about your cat(s)! Name, age, hobbies?

My cat’s name is Mew Mew. She is 1 ½. Her hobbies include napping, people watching from her perch by the window. She loves to be chased around the apartment, hide and seek, play fighting and playing with her mouse. Mew Mew is a very playful kitty. She meows lots when I am busy with other things because she wants to be played with constantly. She is not the most affectionate of kitties but I still try to give her lots of kisses and nuzzel her.  

2. Recommend a book that features, includes or mentions a cat?
