Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts #125
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, my Hungry Hearts quote is from Why Do Dukes Fall in Love, it’s from the first part of the book, where the chemistry and romantic tension has just started to flare up between Edwina and Michael.
My Hungry Hearts quote:
“Mrs. Cheltam, would you mind serving?”
“Certainly. Would you like some ham, Your Grace?”
He shook his head, glancing at Gertrude.
“Go ahead and serve your daughter first. She has been waiting very patiently.”
“I have!” Gertrude exclaimed.
Edwina couldn’t help but smile at her daughter’s enthusiastic support of herself.
“You have, sweetheart.” She rose to take Gertrude’s plate and placed an assortment of the food on it – ham, stewed tomatoes, a bit of chicken pie, and potatoes. She placed it in front of Gertrude, then held her hand out for the duke’s plate. “Your Grace?”
He handed it to her, his eyes glinting with amusement. She hadn’t realized he possessed a sense of humor, much less one relating to food and six-year-olds and dinner.
“You can skip the tomatoes, Cheltam, I don’t care for them,” he said as she began to serve.
“Does that mean I don’t have to eat them, either?”
Edwina shot a quick glance at the duke – do you see what you’ve done? – then looked at her daughter. “The duke does not have anyone he has to listen to.”
“Thank God,” he said in a low murmur. She wanted to giggle at how relieved he sounded, but knew that would only make Gertrude more recalcitrant.
“But you do, at least for a few more years yet. And I want you to eat your tomatoes.”
Thanks for stopping by today, I look forward to reading your Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts quote. Have a terrific Thursday and don’t forget to link up.
