I remember when I first read Anne Rice’s “Interview with a Vampire”, I adored her romantic main character vampire Louis, with dark good looks and troubling leftover human conscience telling a human interviewer his own tragic story.
I’ve experienced the teenage girl vampire crush so I wasn’t at all curious when my neighbor Bernadette gushed over her favorite series True Blood. Bernadette is positively addicted to it, swooning over the main good/bad guy Bill Compton. My husband and I, on the other hand, knew nothing about the show and are addicted instead to her husband’s home-made lasagna!
As we sat in front of their wide-screen TV with filled plates in our lap, it occurred to me that vampires and good lasagna have several things common. Now that I’ve finally digested an episode of “True Blood”, I can tell you.
Bill Compton “the vampire” and lasagna – both hot, steamy, oh and meaty. They both have the power to “glamour” or hypnotize mortals, and finally they are delicious, bite by bite.
