Thirsty Thursdays and Hungry Hearts #5 - Death at the Day Lily Cafe by Wendy Sand Eckel

Hosted by Lexxie @ (un)Conventional Bookviews

Thirsty Thursday & Hungry Hearts is a weekly meme where I share food and/or drink quotes that are too delicious or, well, "interesting" not to share.

This week's post is from Death at the Day Lily Cafe by Wendy Sand Eckel. The protagonist, Rosalie Hart, prides herself on serving delicious, organic, locally sourced food, and this book is full of delicious options.

Sunday's lunch special was based on a meal I'd prepared for one of our suspects last year while searching for Megan Johnston's killer: grilled cheese and a creamy tomato bisque soup with a small chopped salad on the side. But this was no ordinary grilled cheese. The bread was sliced over an inch thick and was based on Aunt Charlotte's recipe, full of whole grains and seeds. The melted aged cheddar was topped with lettuce, red onion, and fresh tomato, the bread slathered with pesto mayonnaise. 

Can you guess what I'm having for lunch tomorrow? Good thing the Farmer's Market comes downtown on Thursdays! Expect a review and recipe from Death at the Day Lily Cafe sometime tomorrow ^^


  1. Looks like a fun book! I like a food based cozy once in a while... and that sounds like a delicious lunch. I think I want that sandwich! :)

  2. That sandwich does sound delicious--comfort food on steroids!
