Black Orchids - Nero Wolfe

Book #7. Black Orchids (A Nero Wolfe mystery) by Rex Stout

I finished reading this book last night. Two novellas in one, for a total of 190 pages. It was an easy and enjoyable read. If I had 50 Nero Wolfe mysteries with me, no doubt I'd achieve my "50 in 365" goal within weeks.

I learned a new word: chitlins:

the intestines of a pig that have been prepared as food. They are a type of offal.

The pictures on the wiki don't look particularly appetizing to me, but apparently it was the secret ingredient to the perfect corned beef hash.
