This recipe is something that a tribute would eat during the pre-Hunger Games training. There would not be food this fine in the Districts they came from. These book are in the young adult category, but it’s been a while since I’ve read a book that makes me want to sit on the couch for hours and burn my way through the entire trilogy. The strong, brainy female protaganist is such a great antidote to the doe-eyed, kittenish, superficial & dreamy female figures that I’m seeing paraded around everywhere. Once again female images that very, very, few “real” girls can live up to. Mr. Smoothpebble sometimes accuses me of being a man-hater, but in this case it’s not the men posting and re-posting these images, it’s women doing it. Come on ladies!! Enough. I digress, I have an extremely delicious recipe to share. The kitten girls couldn’t possibly eat this as it might cause some excess flesh to hang out of their shortie shorts.
