Doing the Dewey: Mini Challenge #2

Book Appetit!

By Zara D. Garcia-Alvarez

One of the books I’m reading during the Dewey Read-a-Thon is The Rest Is Silence by Scott Fotheringham.

REST IS SILENCE by Scott Fotheringham

The main character has left the city of New York to live in the wilderness and backwoods of Nova Scotia! Oh yes, he has!

In nothing, but a tent, a couple of bales of hay for seats in a “dining room,” and a pot over a homemade (and when I say, homemade, I mean HOMEMADE) stove. Yup, a fire.

Nothing, but nature and wilderness—and more nature.

So what’s on the menu for my imaginary book club that will cover The Rest Is Silence?

(Insert silence here.)

Okay, don’t get all huffy and puffy about it! I’m not going to be serving caviar. Nope! This is going to be a “campy” cuisine à la Zara style:

Campy Cuisine from Forest Gardens

Hot dogs

Canned soup

Boiled potatoes (grown fresh from Forest Gardens)

Fresh tomatoes (grown fresh from Forest Gardens)

Freshly picked apples

Roasted marshmallows (borrowed from the characters Jen and Martin)

A bottle of Canadian whiskey (from the character, Art)

Oh and yes, bring your sleeping bags and long johns. This book club is going to be outside!

Thanks to Book Journey who inspired this Book Appetit mini challenge! Yes, I know my menu is scarce, but so it is in The Rest Is Silence.

Eat up and read up! We still have many more hours to go!!!
