Wisecrackers of Ingeside

Today's cracker: Wisecrackers Roasted Garlic with Rosemary

This light and flaky cracker has just enough garlic and rosemary flavor to make it interesting, but not overpowering. Quite tasty by itself, but it would also be good with cheddar or maybe a soft chevre.

Today's books: Anne's House of Dreams and Anne of Ingleside

These are book 5 and 6 of the Anne of Green Gables series. I read the whole series when I was in high school, but don't think I appreciated them properly at the time--certainly not the later books in the series. By the time I got to book 5, which begins with Anne's marriage and ends with the birth of her second child (her first child, sadly, lives only a few days), I wasn't very interested in what Anne was thinking or feeling. I guess I just couldn't relate. Sure, I cried [spoiler alert] when little Joyce died, but I don't think I understood the depth of that loss. Now that I'm older I have some inkling of what she was going through.

Interesting choice of pairings with the cheese. It also sounds like a winner with some fig jam.
