First, let me get one thing straight: I'm not a terrorist. I'm gay.

“Ham and pork had been made into ravioli with cheese, flour, clove, ginger, and laid with the chicken sausage between layers of pastry, dates and almonds. The whole dish had then been shaped into a pie and was being covered with dough…”

I don‘t understand this dish!! Ravioli and sausage layered with pastry, dates, and almonds, and made into a pie?! What is this carb-laden extravaganza?!

Tea_and_Starstuff That is a DISH. My tongue is so confused, trying to imagine how it might taste. 1d
Read-y_Picker Loved this book so much! It's one of my favourites of all time and definitely sent me down a few rabbit holes... 1d

Here‘s my next #ChunksterChallenge2023 pick, and this month‘s #BookSpin! At 650+ pages, this is a “Chunkster Mini” (but it definitely doesn‘t FEEL mini!). I picked up the huge old library discard copy at a library book sale when I was in grad school, in the early 2000s. Then a few years back, my husband bought me the paperback, not realizing I already owned a copy! The hardback will be my “home” copy and the paperback for reading out & about.

Amiable Those older books with the small print definitely have some weight in them! (edited) 1d
DivineDiana I like the 2 copies approach to make this challenge a success! 1d
TheAromaofBooks Oh my!! Good luck!!! 1d
BarbaraJean @TheAromaofBooks I gave this one two spots on my BookSpin list, so technically I only have to read the first half to complete my BookSpin! 😆😂 1d
TheAromaofBooks Nice!! I love doing that with the bigger books. I actually feel like I'm getting somewhere that way! 5h

Mistress of Rome | Kate Quinn

I‘m used to her more recent work like The Alice Network, but this story of the Roman Empire was a good read. Emperors, royalty, slaves, gladiators…and all the ways their lives are intertwined.
