Thirsty Thursday & Hungry Hearts is a weekly feature/meme over at (un)Conventional Book Views, where we post a little something about food or drinks or meals that were mentioned in the book that we’re reading or have read. So here’s mine for this week, taken from the book From Here to Home by Marie Bostwick, which will be released on March 28th:
Wrapping up the tour of Too Much, Mary Dell drove Gary out to the ranch for a delicious meal of chicken-fried steak and peppery cream gravy, fried okra, green beans, jalapeño corn bread and peach pie, all arranged by Taffy.
*drools* I’m really liking the whole elements of food presented here, especially the chicken-fried steak and peach pie. I’m always partial to peaches 🙂 Anyway, when I read this, I didn’t know what is okra, so I had to google it and found that it’s actually a veggie that I’ve always known with another name, which is bhendi. You learn something new everyday. ^^
