(Preface: this is not a sponsored post, but I thought I’d highlight an excellent Wisconsin company that’s been in business since 1933) We are back to spring-like temps this weekend and we are grilling Nueske’s applewood smoked bacon cheddar bratwurst and applewood smoked big dogs. Sunday we’re having BLT’s with Nueske’s uncured cherrywood smoked bacon. I may be the Bargain Sleuth, but every once in a while you have to splurge a little, and Nueske’s products are worth every penny. If you read cooking magazines or blogs, you’ll recognize the name. Nueske’s is known across the United States and consistently wins awards for their excellent bacon, ham, and sausages. And lucky for me, they are located just over an hour away, but they have a fabulous online catalog, too. My daughter was visiting the uni she’s chosen to go to next year over spring break this week and it’s on the other side of the state. But you have to pass Nueske’s to get there, so of course I made her stop there are pick up some treats including an Easter ham, the bacon (rare treat), sausages and some beef sticks. And now my monthly grocery budget is blown, but it’s so worth it. (Just kidding–I rarely spend the budgeted amount for groceries, largely to my shopping at Aldi, but that’s a post for another day.)

From Graham Norton—the BAFTA Award–winning and hugely popular BBC America television host—comes a charming debut novel set in an idyllic Irish village where a bumbling investigator has to sort through decades of gossip and secrets to solve a mysterious crime. “With its tale of provincial life, gimlet-eyed spinsters, and thwarted love…it feels almost like a Miss Marple mystery written by Colm Tóibín” (The New York Times).
The remote Irish village of Duneen has known little drama, and yet its inhabitants are troubled: Sergeant P.J. Collins hasn’t always been this overweight; Brid Riordan, a mother of two, hasn’t always been an alcoholic; and elegant Evelyn Ross hasn’t always felt that her life was a total waste.
So when human remains—suspected to be those of Tommy Burke, a former lover of both Brid and Evelyn—are discovered on an old farm, the village’s dark past begins to unravel. As a frustrated P.J. struggles to solve a genuine case for the first time in his professional life, he unearths a community’s worth of anger and resentments, secrets and regrets.

Lyndon Johnson and the American Dream by Doris Kearns Goodwin $1.99 I’ve enjoyed every book she’s written, have seen her on countless documentaries, and even got a chance to see Kearns Goodwin in person at our local university pre-Covid.
Featuring a 2018 foreword by the Pulitzer Prize–winning political historian that celebrates a reappraisal of Lyndon Johnson’s legacy five decades after his presidency, from the vantage point of our current, profoundly altered political culture and climate, Doris Kearns Goodwin’s extraordinary and insightful biography draws from meticulous research in addition to the author’s time spent working at the White House from 1967 to 1969. After Johnson’s term ended, Goodwin remained his confidante and assisted in the preparation of his memoir. In Lyndon Johnson and the American Dream, she traces the 36th president’s life from childhood to his early days in politics, and from his leadership of the Senate to his presidency, analyzing his dramatic years in the White House, including both his historic domestic triumphs and his failures in Vietnam.

Aunt Bessie Assumes that she’ll have the beach all to herself on a cold, wet, and windy March morning just after sunrise, then she stumbles (almost literally) over a dead body. Elizabeth (Bessie) Cubbon, aged somewhere between free bus pass (60) and telegram from the Queen (100), has lived her entire adult life in a small cottage on Laxey beach.

Can Bessie and her friends find the killer before she ends up as the next victim?
