Tuesday Teats & Titles: Italian Style

We celebrated my sister-in-law’s birthday last night at Olive Garden. I hadn’t eaten there in…wow…at least two years or so. Still love the salads and the bread sticks. For some reason, I started thinking about a “conversation” held on a book blog I follow. The post centered on books where food takes a starring role and got into all sorts of nooks and crannies from deep descriptions of what’s being prepared and/or eaten to restaurants depicted in books to actual recipes.

So, thinking about all that, after eating at an Italian restaurant, I remembered that one of Sade’s favorite places to eat in DC is a little Italian place where Sinjen takes her to eat after picking her up from her FBI office. This happens right before she cuts and runs. Again. Dang but that vampire is patient.

Anyway, no recipe because I make stuff from scratch–meaning a bit of this, some of that, that kind of cheese because that’s what in the fridge and this pasta because I have enough in the pantry. So, That’s my post for today. The title: GHOSTS & THE ANCIENT STONES. Go read it if you haven’t.. Just click on the cover or the title for the Book2Read landing page to find the on-line bookseller or subscription service of your choice.

As for our regular programming, what about y’all? Do you like books with culinary delights. locations, and/or characters included?

  1. I used to love Olive Garden. But it’s been like 10 years since I ate at one. I hope you had a nice time at your SIL’s celebration dinner.

    I enjoy food fiction. There are a lot of mysteries that revolve around food these days and they’re usually fun. A scene or two with food in it in other books can be fun, too. I love your food related scenes. They add flavor. (Pardon the pun.)
