Quick Book Review: Mayday by Thomas Block and Nelson DeMille (Recipe: Chicken, Spinach, and Mushroom Omelette)

Mayday by Thomas Block and Nelson DeMille.

This book was good. Very good.

Twelve miles above the Pacific Ocean, a missile strikes a jumbo passenger jet. But it doesn’t go down. The flight crew is crippled or dead. Three passengers survive. None of them are pilots of jets. Yet, they have to fly the jet if they want to make it home alive. Not to mention that some people who know what happened don’t want them to make it home alive. Mayday is a classic bestseller that is terrifyingly realistic. It is also your worst nightmare.

One of the authors Captain Thomas Block retired from US Airways in April 2000, as a senior Trans-Atlantic pilot flying wide-body jets to Europe. Block has been a pilot since 1959. His knowledge of aircraft makes the book very real.

I highly recommend this book. It was a page turner for sure. Read it.

Remember how I volunteered at that Stop Hunger event at RTI? Here are some pictures! It was a fun event!

And did I tell you that A surprised me with flowers a week and a half ago? They are still beautiful and sitting on my kitchen table!


I will say that the girls are going a little stir crazy with all of the rain we have been getting. I hope it lets up soon so they can get some running in before CanAm! I don’t want them out of shape! And because she is just so darn cute:

Quote of the Day:

“Love is the emblem of eternity. It confounds all notion of time: effaces all memory of a beginning, all fear of an end.” -Madame de Stael

So, I didn’t cook much last week. But I made this Chicken, Spinach, and Mushroom Omelette for dinner one night. I can always do breakfast for dinner. Always.
