Welcome to Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts, an original weekly meme hosted at (un)Conventional Bookworms 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 on Tap by Ellie Alexander.
Cooking unleashed my anger. I took a swig of the citrus IPA and then poured the rest into the batter. It foamed nicely. I swirled the froth by hand and gave the batter a taste with my finger. Beer cupcakes. Yum. I grated fresh orange and lemon peel into the mixture, cut the fruits in half, and squeezed in the juice. I was counting on them to pull out the citrus flavor of the beer. My lips puckered when I inadvertently licked my fingertips, soaked in lemon. Pucker Up, that’s it, I thought. Pucker Up IPA. After adding a touch of Mexican vanilla, I dipped my pinky into the batter for a taste.
Hmm… beer cupcakes. I have to admit I’d never thought of beer as such a useful ingredient in cooking, other than for making BBQ sauce! That said, I’m itching to try my hand at some beer cupcakes now. Sloan actually makes a lot of sweet and savoury dishes using her craft beers. Each foodie description makes me crave her concoctions!
What about you? What are you looking forward to eating today?
