Food and books are the two greatest loves of my life; it's only natural that culinary cozies have a special place in my heart. Thirsty Thursday & Hungry Hearts is where I'll provide food or drink quotes from the books I'm reading.
Since my very first post was a book review of The Big Chili by Julia Buckley (see here), it's only natural that my first quote be from this pivotal scene (witnessed by the protagonist, Lilah Drake):
Alice took a big bite of chili. I hoped she hadn't let it get cold. "Pet's chili is delicious, as always – and I think you’ve added something new, haven’t you, Pet? Something sweet. It provides an interesting counterpoint to the flavor.” Pet shot a look at me and I shook my head. Nothing new in the chili. Alice took another bite and set the dish down. “Anyway, this officially starts our evening’s festivities; I hope that – oh my!” She swayed slightly before us, looking distressed. Her right hand flew to her forehead, her left to her abdomen. “I think that – something's wrong. With the chili.”
Then she fell like a stone, and we heard her head hit the floor.
Stay tuned, because tomorrow, I'll share the recipe for the delicious, (non)deadly version of Pet's chili...
