Avocado and Elizabeth Peters...

A great lunch today. Avocado again! Oh boy, do I ever love avocado. Made the Roast Beef and Avocado Salad for dinner last week. YUMMY. I'll be getting more avocados for sure.

Now for more serious fare. I recommend Elizabeth Peters' series of Amelia Peabody mysteries. Amelia has a thirst for Egypt, pyramids and Archaeological mysteries! You can learn a lot while being entertained. I have read other books by Elizabeth Peters (real name - Barbara Mertz), but her heart is really in the Amelia Peabody character. She is funny, pushy, erudite, loving, inquisitive and very modern for her times. The series is set in the late 1800s and Amelia wears trousers! In order to read these seemingly light reading novels you better have a terrific vocabulary or a terrific dictionary.
