muffins & the kite runner

Spring break has sprung. Offspring #1 is already back at college; Offspring #2 heads up tomorrow. And it's back to work for Hub and me tomorrow as well. Sigh.

Tonight we baked muffins (chocolate with a cream cheese frosting) and watched The Kite Runner, a film based on Khaled Hosseini's epic novel. Set primarily in Afghanistan, it delves into friendship, loyalty, betrayal, and redemption. I thought it was powerful and definitely worth seeing.

USA Today review here.

When I read "The Kite Runner" I could not put it down. The story gripped my heart. Trying to decide if I want to see the movie.

Diane, As a rule I like books better... but I think this film is worth renting.
