Our next meeting is scheduled for Monday, March 11 at 7:00 PM in the Parish Office Conference Room. This is our regular meeting spot for the rest of the year. The book we are reading is Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquivel. It is a short book.
Synopsis: Earthy, magical, and utterly charming, this tale of family life in turn-of-the-century Mexico blends poignant romance and bittersweet wit. This classic love story takes place on the De la Garza ranch, as the tyrannical owner, Mama Elena, chops onions at the kitchen table in her final days of pregnancy. While still in her mother's womb, her daughter to be weeps so violently she causes an early labor, and little Tita slips out amid the spices and fixings for noodle soup. This early encounter with food soon becomes a way of life, and Tita grows up to be a master chef, using cooking to express herself and sharing recipes with readers along the way.
