Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts (12)

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 The Sisters of Alameda Street by Lorena Hughes.

sisters of alameda street by lorena hughes

The exquisite aroma of hornado welcomed Malena to the dining room, where the family had already gathered around an oval table. A replica of Da Vinci’s Last Supper hung on the back wall and a side window revealed a Spanish-style courtyard outside.
On the center of the table sat a long tray of sliced pork surrounded by hominy, fried plantains, sliced avocados, and potato patties.
A lanky woman with a lengthy braid and a light blue uniform greeted Malena.
“Liliana, this is Trinidad,” Ana said. “She’s been with us for twenty years.”


Oh, roasted pork, plantains and avocado, what a delicious meal. I can almost smell the flavours and so wish I could actually taste them too! So yes, I’d definitely be up for trying this meal!

What about you? What are you looking forward to eating today?
