For Christmas Jenn received a new waffle maker. We received a waffle maker as a wedding present and although it made good waffles it was a hassle to clean. Jenn ended up getting a Cuisinart Waffle Maker that flips (ensuring even doneness) and we've been meaning to use it ever since. Sadly with the move, we never got around to using it and thought why not give it a whirl for our Easter breakfast.
The time has finally come. Jenn and I have decided on our big trip for 2017, and it's quite the adventure. As much as I wanted to make a return to Europe, we decided to continue exploring the world and spread our wings to new and interesting places in the world. So this November we will be departing LAX and going on a nearly month long adventure throughout Asia.
I'm ashamed to say that during High School I made the grave mistake of using cliff notes to get through reading Fahrenheit 451. I did that for most books in High School and College and am just now going back and reading the for the first time. Like Orwell's 1984, Fahrenheit 451 is as relevant if not even more so in today's culture.
The last couple of months have been quite the busy months for Jenn and I. It's hard to imagine that in a mere week we will be moving back to Newport Beach after spending two years in a high-rise. Before our apartment becomes a jungle of boxes we decided to do one final Chef Joel & Jenn, Parmesan Shrimp Pasta. I actually tried to do this a week back but Whole Food was out of fresh shrimp and only had pre-cooked. Luckily this week they were back in stock and ready for our pasta.
I love novels that tell narratives through multiple perspectives. I think back to when I first started George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire novels and getting lost in certain character stories and hurriedly rushing through others. Six of Crows is a novel told through, you guessed it, six different characters perspective. But before the book gets there, it starts with a prolonged prologue to set up the world that nearly had me put the book down. The entire first quarter of Six of Crows I found to be both dull and confusing.
