Can't Wait to Get to Heaven

Pam invited me to join her book club group, and since I love to read I jumped at the chance. This was my selection. I read it last year and loved it so much that I just had to share it. It's one of those books that once you put it down, you just can't wait to get back into it. Aunt Elner, who had fallen out of a fig tree, was on quite the adventure, and the entire town of Elmwood Springs, Missouri, was thrown for a loop.
In our book club, we serve foods that are either related to the book, or were mentioned in it. I lucked out as Fannie Flagg had included a bunch of recipes in the back. It was hard chosing which ones to fix, but I managed.
Louise Franks' Deviled Eggs were delicious!

Mrs. McWilliams' Corn Bread was tasty!
And Neighbor Dorothy's Heavenly Caramel Cake was, well, heavenly!
So, run, don't walk, to your nearest book store or library, and get this book! You'll be glad you did. Not only will you fall in love with Elmwood Springs, you will have the recipes too!
