A Little Bit of Magic ...

You know those magical days when you find things you didn't even know you were looking for ...?

I was filling in time at my favourite secondhand bookshop in the city when I discovered a book I had read once and left back home in New Zealand.

An Italian Affair by Laura Fraser was, as I recall, was a rather delicious escape.

Later I discovered a copy of a movie I loved and also left back home in one of the big plastic boxes filled with my books and video tapes ... Media Markt was selling Fried Green Tomatoes ... delighted I am.

Both were 4euro ...
Today was a good day.

That book and that film I recall fondly. And I have the DVD of Fried Green Tomatoes, which I've watched several times - reminds me of growing up in the South.

I haven't read the book yet ... it opens so differently that I've put it back a couple of times.

The movie ... simply delicious.

The book is lovely as well, but in a different way from the film. And there are recipes in the back!

Recipes huh ... I've given up cooking mostly, in this land of tempermental and deranged gas ovens :(
