I know you must be thinking ~ what is with that blog post title?
I have a reason for it ~ really I do!
I love cookbooks. A few years ago I was reading only Southern
authors when I discovered this delightful book ~ Being Dead Is No Excuse
The Official Southern Ladies Guide to Hosting the Perfect Funeral.
These two authors, Gayden Metcalfe and Charlotte Hays have
combined the perfect mix of storytelling, wit and recipes into a fun
read. Go to the website Being Dead Is No Excuse for more info.
This is one of the recipes from their book that I highly recommend! It comes
from the Viking Cooking School. Since I have a Viking, I could hardly
wait to make this recipe.
It is sweet and has a very fresh taste because of the addition of the lemon zest
and the fresh parsley and garlic.
I laughed so much while reading this book. One of my favorite stories is when they
discuss the women of St James' Episcopal Church:
"Ladies from the alter guild have been known to visit the Vatican only to sniff
'That's not how it is done at St James'." So true! I spent several years serving on the
alter guild of St Michaels' Cathedral and I know how particular and careful
the alter guild ladies are to uphold tradition.
Viking Tomatoes will be a great addition to your recipe file, so give it a try.
Check out a copy of the book too. You will have so much fun
I know Bentley, your Daddy is not a tomato fan, but we love them
