Food & Fiction Friday: A Little Beyond Hope Edition
Hey gang! It’s Friday! Last week my post didn’t make it to the blog (but it did make it to Instagram and Facebook, so if you follow me there, you’re about to see a rerun!)
Book: A Little Beyond Hope by Tracie Puckett
A Little Beyond Hope picks up where the Just a Little series left off. Julie Little’s relationship with the swoon-worthy police officer Luke is moving full steam ahead, but family issues and a devastating tornado throw a few twists and turns into Julie’s life.
One of my favorite parts of the book is when they are running for the basement (because tornado) and Julie goes back for the freshly delivered pizza. Julie is not a great cook and loves to order pizza. It’s a very endearing quality to her character–so much so that when I wrote Elizabeth in Tease I wanted to give her a similar quirk (Elizabeth is so bad at cooking she burns everything.) And since we all know I develop strong attachments to the food mentioned in the books I’m reading, I had to make pizza!
As you can see from the ingredients above, I have Publix to thank for the pizza. The fresh dough and mozzarella are both Publix brand. I also indulged in Boar’s Head pepperoni’s, fresh sweet peppers, onions, mushrooms, and spinach! And while cooking I enjoyed a cold Yuengling! (Pretty sure I spelled that wrong…)
I also turned on some Snow Patrol in the background because I’m seriously addicted to The Lighting Strike and listen to it on repeat from time to time…
The pizza came out great and now I think I’m going to have to start making homemade pizzas again. I mean, pizza delivered to your door is convenient (and half the reason I love pizza) but the homemade variety is so, so worth it!
Check out this little one minute wrap-up video I made (this software is my newest addiction) and stay tuned for my next edition of Food and Fiction Friday! Have a great weekend!
