Welcome to Thirsty Thursday & Hungry Hearts, an original weekly meme hosted by Lexxie at (un)Conventional Bookviews. She realized that many of the books she read (must have been cozies!) had food or drinks in them and thought it would be interesting and fun to share some food and/or drink quotes.
Few rules with this meme, just share the food or drink quote, and note whether or not it’d be something you’d be interested in yourself. Share the title of the book and the character who introduced the delicacy! Easy! You are welcome to use her logo or create your own but please link back to her blog.
This week I want to share Ropa Vieja, as “some people consider this to be the national dish.” Author Lucy Burdette shared her recipe in the book I just read and reviewed called Death on the Menu. Sounds to me like a variation of beef stew, yes, I’d try it.The dish name is dropped by protagonist Hayley Snow, the Key West food critic for the Key Zest Magazine. She translates the name of the recipe as “old clothes.” Yum!
