Its about time

Since it has been around a year since I have been on here, I thought it was well past time to get back in the game.  🙂

What a way to start than with this:

The word you are looking for is…”ahhh…maaaaa…zing!”

This awesome creation by McCormick and Schmick’s graced my plate yesterday in all its splendor.  It is huge!  At least to me.  The size of the picture doesn’t do it justice.  It is truly a delicious piece of art filled with mousse and the raspberry sauce on the bottom is delicious!  I would recommend to anyone and everyone.

We then made our way to see Allegiant…which sadly I would not recommend to anyone and everyone.  My husband enjoyed it, but has not read the book.  Very futuristic…almost to the sci-fy realm.  I, being a HARD CORE Divergent fan, am not enjoying all the artistic liberties being put into the films.  This last one is completely different than the book, changed, not just missing parts.  However, it is entertaining.

That’s it for now!  Figured I would start with a nice light, yummy post before delving into politics and such on my first blog back in action.

Allegiant

I have been waiting over a year for this book, the third in the series.  I am a HUGE fan of the Divergent and Insurgent books!   After waiting so long, I do not feel it is truly fair to rate this book…there was a long and large build up.  It took me a little longer to get into than the first two, but once in, I was hooked.  Veronica Roth is talented!  I did feel that this book read more like a movie than a book, but let’s face it, it will likely be in movie form before we know it.  I hope so anyway!  I figured out how it would end early on.  She left a little bit of room for the what if and I had my own ending in mind that I knew she wouldn’t do, but I completely understand why she ended it the way she did.  It was the only way to bring the series full circle and make a clean and closed ending to the series.  I applaud Veronica Roth for this series…it is captivating and unique.  I do like the first 2 better than the last, but I still like the last, especially for a 3rd book in a series!  🙂  You should definitely read and enjoy!
