Santa Baby, I could really use these food books for Christmas

Are you there, Santa? It’s me, Ashlee.

I have been pretty good this year. I’m eating my vegetables. I’m working out again. And I started a new job that allows me to give back to the people of my hometown.

If you are willing to overlook a couple of things (like the times I gave my dog, Roscoe, people food) I hope you can find it in that big heart of yours to give me a few books about food for Christmas. I know you’re too busy to guess what I want, so I took the liberty of making a list of the books I would like so your day will run a little easier.

  • America the Edible: A Hungry History, From Sea to Dining Sea by Adam Richman. The author is the host of one of my favorite shows, Travel Channel’s Man vs. Food. Richman travels around the country visiting homegrown restaurants and undertaking epic eating challenges. In his book, Richman explores the history of some of America’s favorite dishes. If the book is half as interesting as Richman, I’m sure I’ll enjoy it. I also have a bit of a crush on this chubby Yale grad, but I digress.

 

 

 

I think that’s it for now, Santa. Thanks for listening. I’ll ask my roommates to leave a baked good out for you on Dec. 24.

Hugs and kisses,

Ashlee
