Welcome to Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts, an original weekly meme hosted at (un)Conventional Bookviews where readers share food or drink quotes from their current reads.
Over on her site, Lexxie says: So many of the books we 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 this feature 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.
- Share the title of the book it happened in,
- as well as the character who ate or drank the special little something.
- Each week there is a link-up for the current post so that it’s easy to find other participants as well.
- Add your post to the linky.
My quote today comes from Death by Didgeridoo by Barbara Venkataraman.
“It was way past lunch time and I was starving, so the first thing I did when I got in the house was make a sandwich–a peanut butter, banana, and honey sandwich, to be exact. Now, I know what you’re thinking, you’re thinking that sounds gross, but you shouldn’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it. I mean, it’s not like I suggested you eat a sardine sandwich. Yes, somebody actually eats those. If you Google sardine sandwich, recipes pop up, I kid you not.”
I read Death by Didgeridoo last month and found it to be a very short, fun story. You can check out the review here. I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the series too.
Admittedly this is not the usual mouth watering, hunger inducing quote that I would use on Thirsty Thursday, but it really made me laugh and I immediately thought about it for this meme! And I would definitely go with the peanut butter, banana and honey sandwich over sardines! Yuck! That was one tinned food to steer clear of in my house. Lol
What are you eating today? I hope it’s something delicious!
