Top Ten Recipes from Cormac McCarthy’s The Road

roadThe Road is an important book, a big book, an Oprah book. It is now a Weinstein production, and soon we’ll be inundated with The Road publicity. As much as I like the book, I dread the movie. All reports are that it takes a book so hard to read into a movie that is miserably difficult to watch. Then again, it could be a great big fail and turn out to be just another zombie movie.

Thinking about this, I twittered my top ten recipes from The Road:

  1. Lady Fingers
  2. Hush Babies
  3. Mock Roast Turkey
  4. Nice Piece of Ass
  5. Babyback Ribs
  6. UnMystery Meat
  7. Chewy Tubes Cormac n Cheese
  8. Really Sloppy Joe
  9. Meat and No Potatoes
  10. Roadkill Haggis

The Wish List

I’ll put some bath salts into a tub of hot water, light some scented candles, pour some Mountain Dew into some ros√© wine (the Pink Zinfandel),¬†turn on some Peabo Bryson, and then close my eyes…
