Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts #141
Welcome to Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts, an original weekly meme hosted here at (un)Conventional Bookviews. So many of the books I read have food or drinks in them, some I’d love to try, and others I’d never ever want to taste… and I thought it could be interesting and fun to share some food and / or drink quotes… If you want to participate, you can grab my logo if you’d like, or you can make your own, but please link back to me in your own post.
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. Please link up beneath, and visit other bloggers who are participating in Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts as well.
This week, I’m taking you back with me to Man Hands. As I said in my last Hungry Hearts post, Brynn is a food blogger. And she enjoys both food and various drinks with her BFFs. Not only that, but there is so much humor in that story, I just keep wanting to re-visit.
My Hungry Hearts quote:
Brynn pours the chocolatey stuff into the white fluffy stuff. Then she uses a paddle-shaped thing to combine them. She’s sort of lifting the fluff over the chocolate in slow, certain strokes. ‘I’m getting a little turned on, my dick whispers.’ Huh. I’d actually forgotten about him for a while.
“What is that you’re making?” I ask quietly, hoping she won’t remember that I’ve probably ruined her peace for the foreseeable future.
“Chocolate mousse. Do you have parfait cups?”
“What are those?”
Without a glance in my direction she turns around and begins opening and shutting cabinets again. It’s a huge kitchen, so this takes a while. “Aha!” she finally says, grabbing two glass dishes that look like extra-sturdy wine glasses. She tips the bowl and sort of encourages the mousse to fill first one cup and then the other. She opens the fridge again and puts the cups inside. And then? She licks the paddle. Her tongue comes out and sweeps the chocolate off one edge. Slowly.
