When the lovely Jain from Once In a Blue Moon contacted me about a new challenge idea called Food for Thought, I was intrigued. We are both avid readers (she, way more avid than me) and we love to cook. It seemed like a lovely idea.
One slight problem. My latest reading kick. Murder mysteries. Not just murder mysteries, but bloody, gory, serial killer mysteries. No, cute cozy mysteries for me. These books do not lend themselves to prettily prepared dishes. I turned to Jain for some help and she came up a perfect solution…a Bloody Mary. Hey, I’m always willing to swill a cocktail, especially if it is for you my loyal readers.
I haven’t had a Bloody Mary in ages. What with the tomato juice and the celery stalk, I felt downright healthy drinking it! There are lots of variations for recipes. I am ashamed to say that we used a bottled mix. It was easy just 4 parts mix to one part vodka and toss in a celery stick.
I’d like to try one from scratch though. What about it, anyone have a favorite recipe?
So, this brings my first Food for Thought to a close. No food and no recipe. Jain is so thrilled that she asked me to participate, I bet. Be sure and follow the links and go check out how you too can participate. You’re probably reading a nice normal book, with tea parties or dinner parties, and all other kinds of inspiration.
