Sweet Reads Box October 2021 πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

Happy Saturday! I hope your weekend includes some me time to read and unwind. My mom is visiting from Toronto for a few days so I’m expecting we’ll go for a few long walks (shorter if we drag the kids along), play some board games and do a little shopping. And I know as soon as she sees this post she’ll want to read October’s Sweet Reads pick so I set that aside for her to enjoy while she’s here. Whatever you get up to, I hope it’s lovely.

Sweet Reads Box Limited Edition Cook’s Box August 2021: Farm, Fire & Feast by Michael Smith πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

But that doesn’t preclude me from collecting and enjoying cookbooks (many, many cookbooks, LOL) and dreaming of meals and desserts I might try, ones the whole fam jam might like. So I was thrilled when Sweet Reads announced their latest Cook’s Box, this one featuring the newest book from chef Michael Smith, Farm, Fire & Feast: Recipes from the Inn at Bay Fortune. Like Sweet Reads’ monthly boxes, it’s packed with delicious treats to eat and drink and some other fun and functional items to enjoy with the book. I’ve got a quick look at it here — quick because there’s just a few left and I don’t want you to miss out. Read on, my taste buds!
