Tuesday Treats & Titles: Chicken Soup Books

Yesterday was crazy! I was home early in the morning, for a little bit around noon, and then got back from the doctor’s and LG errands a bit after 5 p.m. By that time I was pooped. It was dinner and baseball and early bed.  So, I’m having to think on the fly. Y’all have no ideqa how hard it is to pair food with a book. Then I have to play around with making a graphic because…hey! Pictures! And do the coding for the links and all that there technical stuff. LOL Today, I’m doing a quicky.

Two questions:

  1. Trending snack food in your house (espeically if nibbling while reading):
  2. Your favorite “chicken soup” book (you know the one you always pick up for a comfort read or to just read because you’re in a slump and you know this ONE book will satisfy you):

My answers:

  1. Fritos and Dean’s Onion Dip, Hey, Fritos are made from corn–a vegetable! And onions are good for you and sour cream is a cousin to yogurt and yogurt is healthy so I’m eating a healthy snack. Sh’up. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
  2.  NAKED IN DEATH by J.D. Robb. I truly don’t know how many times I’ve read this book. More than 10. Maybe more than 20. It’s the book that kicked me out of my depression way back when and got me writing again. It’s always the book I reach for when I’m slumping.

And there you have it, the abbreviated version of TT&T. Now ‘fess up, y’all! Treats and titles. What are yours?

  1. That combo of snacks would have been my go-to, my absolute fav! Now it is fruit and chicken or turkey, free of all the nasty hormones and antibiotic stuff, then again, this new snack for me HIPPEAS I snacked on thinking it was good for me may or may not be. Hard to navigate but the book I finished for book club tonight “Nine Lives’ by Peter Swanson was just the opposite such an easy read!

  2. I’ve been making my own bean dip with smashed pinto beans, American cheese, and chunky salsa. Nuke it until the cheese is melted and stir it all together. Eat it with tortilla chips. It’s pretty good, if I do say so myself. As for reading, I don’t actually have a chicken-soup book. I have a chicken-soup genre of sorts – old paperback mysteries. When nothing else works, I pull one of my collection off the shelf. Sometimes it’s Agatha Christie. Sometimes it’s Mickey Spillane or Alistair MacLean, etc. Lately, I’ve been buying a lot of old romantic suspense – Victoria Holt and Phyllis Whitney. Yum.

      Not a fan of bean dip but hey! You’re “experiments” usually turn out really tasty so go for it! 😉 And sometimes, it’s better to have a chicken soup genre than just a book. LOL More variety. 😀
