I’m trying to get more social with my blog, so I am trying out some blog memes! Today, I’m participating in Thirsty Thursdays & Hungry Hearts, hosted by (un)Conventional Bookworms!
Here’s the details:
The idea of Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts is to share a quote with food or drinks that showed up in a recent read, as well as if it’s something you think you’d like or not. Please share the title of the book it happened in, as well as the character who ate or drank the special little something you discovered between the pages of a good read.
This week, I’m reading a great thriller, Over Your Shoulder, which has several mouth-watering descriptions of “takeaways,” as the Brits call them and other delicious goodies. Here’s one that made me wish we had a good Mediterranean restaurant near us:
As promised, she’d brought a takeaway, and when I saw the dishes of Lebanese food–baba ganoush, sumac-roasted chicken wings and skewered lamb, salads slathered in molasses and tahini–my appetite kicked in. I opened a bottle of Lebanese red I’d been hoarding for such an occasion and devoured my food and drink as though I hadn’t eaten in a month.
We were clearing up in the kitchen when she leaned her hips against the worktop and said, ‘Nick. I have something to tell you.’
