Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts, #3

unconventionalbookviews_meme-thirstythursdayhungryhearts-1

Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts is a weekly meme hosted by (un)Conventional Bookviews where readers share food or drink quotes from their current reads. It’s surprisingly addicting.

From The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting, Violet experiences a moment we all know too well…

“They shared orders of pad Thai, Swimming Angel, and some Vietnamese spring rolls that came with both a sweet garlic and a peanut dipping sauce. The smell of their jasmine-infused rice mingled with the scents of coconut sauces and chili peppers. By the time they were finished, Violet was stuffed and wondered if she’d even fit into her dress anymore.”

Ah, food. I love it. The hardest part is learning how to avoid overindulgence – especially as we grow older and our metabolism slows. (Not cool, metabolism.. Not cool.)

From A Scone to Die For by H.Y. Hanna, Gemma reflects on her recent business venture:

“Considering how bad I was at baking anything, it was probably a joke that I wanted to run a tearoom. Still, I enjoyed eating the items, which I considered half the qualification for the job.”

Ah, I must agree with Gemma. Passion comes in many forms and, if it happens to be closely tied to food, then you are best off loving what you make/sell/eat. (Or maybe I got too distracted by the yummy food described in this book 😉 )
