Something has come over me and I have this insatiable urge to go back to my Mother’s Carolina, Southern roots. Maybe it is because I am homesick for my family and in need of some SOUTHERN COMFORT!
Today I took on the
challenge of tomato aspic. Sounds weird but it is delicious when paired with the right cocktail.
The book, BEING DEAD IS NO EXCUSE, The Official Southern Ladies Guide to Hosting the Perfect Funeral, was a recommendation from the Domestic
Goddess herself, Nigella Lawson. Seems so odd that a perfectly proper British lady would consider this very Southern guide a go-to for traditional, uncomplicated recipes.
So here I go on my quest to make the perfect Aspic and according to this
book, one cannot be buried without an aspic at least not in the Mississippi Delta!
“Store-bought aspic is available, no self-respecting Southerner would be caught dead…….sorry………..eating it."
