Wide World Books & Maps
Author: Louise Erdrich
Suggested by: Katherine Steets, Mt. Assiniboine X-C Ski tour.
What is it about?Post-WWI European immigrants lead compelling lives in Argus, North Dakota, the small fictional town of Edrich's previous novels. A wonderful tale full of rich, expansive imagery, that verges on magic realism.
Meals served by new friends in distant countries result in recipe swaps. Here is a favorite.
Summer Tomato Salad
Recipe by: Adventure Associates guide, Hamid - Lamu Island, Kenya, E. Africa.
Fresh summer beefy tomatoes
Sweet onions, thinly sliced
Cayenne, sprinkle lightly
Salt & Pepper to taste
Mix Lime juice and spices to taste. Marinate tomatoes and onions in lime and spices for a picnic on the beach with Sourdough Bread, and Coca-Cola. Served best with fresh-caught Red Snapper from the Indian Ocean, cooked over a grill of branches and thicket found on the shoreline. Lick fingers accordingly. Actually served on hot summer days for any occasion and is a very refreshing treat.
