A couple of years ago my family and I decided to start a book club. The book club consists of six members and we all have a difference in opinion on our go too books and wanted to read outside our comfort zone. With each book we read we have a get together where we have a cook off of sorts with a theme inspired from the book we are reading.

This month our book was Kindred by Octavia E. Butler we decided on a retro theme since the book had time travel in it. We made burgers on the grill and we had tater tots, onion rings, and crinkle fries to go with it. I picked up the little red baskets and got wax paper to line it with. We also had Root Beer Floats and to top the day off Ice Cream Sundaes.

Not all of us were able to read this one as we are borrowing from the library and some have had it reserved for months to no avail. I was able to get an audiobook for it (review coming soon) but those who did read liked the book overall.
