"I weaken again at a clear green broth that I can only describe
as tasting like spring time, and again when I try a frothy pink soup
dotted with raspberries."
from Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
No, I haven't seen the movie yet!
I did finally get around to reading the books though, and they were as wonderful as I expected. I have to tell you, when I read the final page of Mockingjay, I burst into major tears. I had to go finish the epilogue after I'd composed myself.
This wasn't my only overly emotional experience while reading. You should have seen me the night J noticed I was reading the third book...before reading the second book. It's rare to see me so devastated.
But no worries, mmkay? Because we've got some fine Capitol fare on our hands.
I'm sure the chefs in the Capitol put a lot of sneaky special ingredients into their chilled raspberry soup. But this very simple, and very easy recipe passed my Capitol-quality taste testing. It needs just four ingredients and minutes to make it.
Even the amazing food wouldn't be enough to get me to play in the Hunger Games though. J has already told me that Prim reminds him of me...yep, I'd be the one to shed tears if anyone tried to teach me to hunt. Katniss is an amazing character, but I have to admit, I'm just nothing like her. You?
