If you haven't read The Hunger Games, you won't get this.

On Tuesday, I hosted my book club's monthly meeting, for which we read The Hunger Games (if you haven't read this yet, you should be regretting it.  Stop reading this post immediately, go to any sort of establishment that sells books, and buy the first copy you find.  Begin reading before you get back to the car).

Here's our meal:

Left:  Prim's Goat's Cheese and Mushroom Taquitos
Right:  Cornucopia Vegetable Salad

Top:  Mellark Family Bakery Cupcakes (thanks, Mary!)
Bottom:  Poisonous Capital Rebellion Berry Terrine

Multigrain Rolls Sponsored by the People of District 11

And then we talked (gushed) about the book, discussed our ideal cast for the movie, found out what District of Panem we would belong to, figured out our own personal strategies if we were Tributes (run far and fast from Laura if you ever meet her in the arena) and ultimately decided to read the next book in the series.  BECAUSE THE HUNGER GAMES IS AWESOME, Y'ALL.  also, so is my book club.

  1. YOU'RE KILLIN' ME SMALLS!!!! (sandlot)


  2. i almost teared up at the bread from District 11. the stuff about Rue makes me sob. and no, i still haven't read Mockingjay yet.

  3. kelsey, what is wrong with you?!?!?!! read it already!!!!!!!!

  4. I'm so embarrassed that I don't read. How can you and Kelsey be my daughters? Oh yeah, because you're also your father's daughters.

  5. Okay, it may seem strange that I'm reading this post that's way back in October... but it has to do with The Hunger Games. I'm SO in. Man, I have a blog group that talks about it but my school friends are so ignorant! Sigh. If only I could have a picnic and RAVE about Suzanne Collins' amazingness.
