Christmas Confection (Happy Holidays)
Christmas is around the corner and just in case you don’t get enough of it in advertisements and store decorations, I thought’ I’d review a book or two to get you more in the mood for the holidays.
At the end of the book there are also a bunch of recipes from the Lost River townspeople. Frances's Macaroni and Cheese looks mighty tempting. I'll have to try it.
I love it when books throw in recipes. Making the dishes brings back memories of the books. For example, every time I make leek potato soup, I think of William Alexander and Superchuck in The $64 Tomato. (By the way, the soup is delicious!)
and it was nominated for an Oscar for best screenplay adaptation. Unfortunately, the adapted screenplay for Silence of the Lambs beat her in that category. If it was up to me, I would have voted for Fried Green Tomatoes any day. I'd much rather have fried green tomatoes than fava beans with a nice chianti, if you know what I mean (though I think I'll pass on the ribs and liver).
