Summertime, right? And the living is supposed to be easy!
Here at Sophie’s Terminal at the Tracks, that seems like an elusive dream. Sure, it’s easy to work with our terrific staff: Sophie, my aunt and the owner of the Terminal, Inez, our efficient and personable waitress, and even George (don’t tell him I told you), our cook, who in spite of the fact that he tries to look formidable and act surly, is really a pussy cat at heart.
And then, of course, there’s Declan who manages the Irish Store across the street and is the love of my life. Oh yeah, he helps make my life easier–and happier, too.
But then there are the murders, and they always seem to have a way of intruding on our lives here in Hubbard, Ohio. This time, the murder is tied into my old life back in Hollywood where I was a personal chef to a mega-star, and to the Italian food we’re featuring on this month’s Ethinic Eats menu.
So I’ll tell you what, let’s go with the summertime flow, forget the grim and the gruesome, and concentrate on food!
Tell me what your favorite Italian food is and I’ll pick a winner from the comments and send out a copy of “Italian Iced.” You’ve got until August 7 (Tuesday) close of business (5 pm EDT) to respond and I’ll post my winner the next day, August 8.
Good luck! And enjoy your summer reading!
