Daily Journal food editor Ginna Parsons (5:29) has been experimenting with a Moroccan recipe, and she joins Derek Russell and Chris Kieffer on today’s episode to discuss it.
Ginna said she regrets that Tupelo doesn’t have a restaurant that serves Indian or Moroccan food, so when she craves a good curry or a highly spiced dish, she has to cook it herself. This week, she tried Moroccan chicken with green olives and lemon.
Ginna also talks about this week’s Cook of the Week, Violet Armstrong of Pontotoc County. Her specialty is a cabbage roll recipe she got from a Jordanian friend. She also specializes in several casseroles and has been cooking healthier since a recent heart surgery.
Daily Journal chief photographer Thomas Wells (13:09) talks about his photo essay on the dog groomers at Lil Darlins Grooming in Tupelo.
M. Scott Morris (22:19) reviews “The Glass Castle.” The movie takes a viewers on a dark ride through a series of painful moments, but leaves them filled with hope in the end.
Derek (31:44) has the highlights of the entertainment scene – a slam poetry and spoken word conference at the Link Centre, Touch-A-Truck at Ballard Park and the upcoming production of “7 Ways to Say I Love You” by the Tupelo High School Theatre Department.
