January 20th~ Food for Thought is returning~ kicking off with The Night Circus. . .
“The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it, no paper notices plastered on lampposts and billboards. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not.
Within these nocturnal black-and-white striped tents awaits an utterly unique experience, a feast for the senses, where one can get lost in a maze of clouds, meander through a lush garden made of ice, stare in wonderment as the tattooed contortionist folds herself into a small glass box, and become deliciously tipsy from the scents of caramel and cinnamon that waft through the air.”
I’m thrilled at the return of Food for Thought! Jain’s wonderful reading journey and fun idea to mix the pages with the camera & kitchen~ prompted me to get off the fence and start blogging two years ago so I could play among the pages!
This year, 22 books have preselected and you are invited to join in the fun! Just like The Night Circus, Food for Thought becomes a feast for the senses where you can lose yourself among the pages and read with a playful purpose. If your New Year’s resolution has you cutting calories~ skip the food and share a scene, activity, location~ whatever comes across the pages to you & furthers your reading enjoyment!
Previously for Food for Thought, I have relocated a 1920′s cabin 245 miles and had a celebratory party with Caramel Apples & S’mores. . .
Enjoyed Finger Sand-Witches & a bubbling Cauldron of Soup after the Salem Witch Trials. . .
Travelled to Italy, India & Indonesia & indulged in Chocolate Pizza. . .
Watched dolphins in Sweetwater Creek while raising Boykin Spaniel Cheese Straws. . .
Food for Thought led me to chase the moon and fireflies~as well as props & dishes to provide visual book reviews & find tablescape inspiration. . .
And led to my discovery of the magic of bottle trees, fairies & sugar and well as new authors, books & recipes. . .
You can see my year in review for Food for Thought here.
Our next selection after The Night Circus is Chocolate Chocolate: The True Story of Two Sisters, Tons of Treats, and the Little Shop That Could ~ a book chocoholics can sink their teeth into & perfect with Valentine’s Day on the horizon!
