This is a departure from the norm, but indulge me… Austen or Brontë? Any Brontë sister.
I’ve been rereading my old classic collections, and watching some movie adaptations of them. There’s no better way to relax. I highly recommend it.
So, anyway, I find myself unable to easily answer the question these days. I fluctuate between one choice to another.
In the past, I would have predictably chosen Austen. But this week I’m leaning Brontë. More complex and interesting, I think, and somehow more relevant.
This isn’t a book club, obviously, but I do have other interests besides food and fiesta. It’s been too hot, anyway, to do real cooking and baking. Give me a glass of iced tea and cucumber sandwiches and I’ll live.
Since we’re at it, whose portrayal of Mr. Rochester is the best? Orson Welles, George C. Scott, Timothy Dalton, Ciaran Hinds, Michael Fassbender, or Toby Stephens?
Also… LeBron James or Michael Jordan? Lionel Richie or Kenny Rogers? Coke or Pepsi? Burger King or McDonald’s?
The answer, my friend, is blowin in the wind… and LeBron James.
And now, features from last week’s fiesta
“So, basil in a cake, have you tried it?! I actually haven’t. I’ve added it in drinks, but not in cakes. I can’t wait to give it a try!” — Angie
“This exotic looking one pot meal with New Orleans flavours looks as much fun to make as it is to eat.” — Hilda
“Seriously?! I’ve never even heard of Yaka Mein before! Which is nearly impossible with my love of anything Noodles and “Noo” Orleans (ha!). This one is guaranteed to be tried, soonish!” — Angie
“Who wouldn’t be tempted by these sweet and spicy treats! I’m thinking of a hot pot of tea and a plate of these fresh doughnuts with friends and family.” — Hilda
“Jess has perfected the art of do(ugh)nuts – just look at that crispy exterior! The cardamom she adds to the cinnamon sugar is such an unexpected yet tantalizing finishing touch.” — Mara
“Irene’s fresh and colorful molletes are exactly the kind of breakfast I need to get my morning off to a great start! I’d be happy to eat these open-faced sandwiches for breakfast, lunch, AND dinner.” — Mara
