Thirsty Thursday & Hungry Hearts~ The Lifeboat Clique

Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts - (un)Conventional Bookviews

I’m participating in Thirsty Thursday & Hungry Hearts, hosted by Lexxie over at {un}Conventional Book Views again this week.

What is Thirsty Thursday & Hungry Hearts? Well here’s a description from Lexxie’s site:

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. 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. Each week there is a link-up for the current post so that it’s easy to find other participants as well.

This week I am featuring The Lifeboat Clique by Kathy Parks. The group is eating through their rations in this scene. {pg. 116-117}

The Lifeboat Clique

Abigail took the Kleenex and spread it our on the flat area near where the engine used to be and laid the open can on its side on top of it and pressed the credit card into it, peeling off a thin slice with the skill of a surgeon. She took out on of the ancient crackers and handed it to Hayley with the slice of Spam. Hayley put the sad cracker/Spam combo together and took a quick bite, making a face as though she’d just been forced to put on a belt that didn’t match her shoes.
“Ugggg!”
She held out her tongue to reveal the shimmering wreckage of the cracker and the mass of deconstructed Spam, then the tongue went slowly back inside her mouth, and she swallowed with exaggerated effort.

This week I am featuring The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski. In this scene, Kestrel and Arin are fighting over her decision to marry the prince. {pg. 115}

The Winner's Crime (The Winner's Trilogy, #2)

“The law is written by the sword. The emperor holds the sword, not you, and if he says that I am not to be burdened by a tiresome post, who are we to disagree? Come, let’s not quarrel. The tea is nice isn’t it? A little too steeped, though. I might not finish my cup.”
Arin’s expression was turning dangerous. “So we’re to talk about tea?”
“Would you prefer chocolate?”

This week I am featuring Pippi Longstocking by Astrid Lindgren. Pippi takes Tommy and Annika on a picnic in this scene. {pg. 80-81}

Pippi Longstocking

“Now shut you eyes while I set the table,” said Pippi. Tommy and Annika squeezed their eyes as tightly shut as possible. They heard Pippi opening the basket and rattling paper.
“One, two, nineteen– now you may look,” said Pippi at last.
They looked, and they squealed with delight when they saw all the good things Pippi had spread on the bare rock. There were good sandwiches with meatballs and ham, a whole pile of sugared pancakes, several little brown sausages, and three pineapple puddings. For, you see, Pippi had learned cooking form the cook on her father’s ship.

This week I am featuring Bay of Sighs by Nora Roberts. This scene takes place between Annika {a mermaid} and Sawyer {a traveler} in the kitchen. {pg. 97-98}

Bay of Sighs (The Guardians Trilogy, #2)

She liked wine and helping Sawyer make dinner, so enjoyed both. She got to make something he called bruschetta– cutting the long bread in half, toasting it– while he cooked chicken for the dish he called alfredo.
“Remember how to mince?”
“Cut up, very, very small.”
“Very small, those Roma tomatoes and that garlic.”
She applied herself to it, imagining how nice it would be to cook with him like this without the bruises from training or the thoughts of fighting ahead.

This week I am featuring The Bane Chronicles by Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan, and Maureen Johnson. This scene is between Magnus and Edmund. {pg. 133}

The Bane Chronicles

“Had a night of it, did we?” Magnus asked, a little more gently.
“I had a few glasses of wine with the duck a l’orange,” Edmund said, with a pallid smile that vanished as soon as it was born. “I shall never eat duck again. I cannot believe I used to like duck. The duck betrayed me.” He was silent, then admitted, “Perhaps more than a few glasses. I have not seen you in Eaton Square.”
Magnus wondered why on earth Edmund had thought he would, and then he recalled. It was the beautiful young Welsh girl’s address.

This week I am featuring Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson. In this scene, Taylor unexpectedly runs into Henry at the bakery. {pg. 97-98}

Second Chance Summer

“Right,” I said quickly, realizing I was a customer in a shop, and the fact that I was supposed to know what I wanted should not have been a shock to me. “Um…” I saw a platter of cupcakes with multicolored pastel icing, and I immediately looked away from them. Cupcakes reminded me all too much of my birthday, the slapdash celebration, the news about my dad. Searching for something– anything else– I tapped on the case in front of the next thing I saw. “A dozen of these.” I looked closer and saw that what I’d just pointed to were, unfortunately, oatmeal raisin cookies. I hated oatmeal in all forms, but especially when people tried to dress it up as dessert; Gelsey refused to eat raisins, and none of the rest of my family had ever been huge fans. I had just ordered a dessert that nobody in our house would most likely eat.
“Really.” Henry didn’t exactly phrase it as a question, and he raised his eyebrows at me. “Oatmeal?”
I just stared at him for a moment. There was no way Henry remembered that, five years ago, I hated oatmeal cookies. It just wasn’t possible. “Yeah,” I said slowly. “Oatmeal. Why?”
“No reason,” he said as he took down another green bakery box from the shelf behind him and began transferring in the cookies two at a time. “I just didn’t think you liked them.”

This week I am featuring The Square Root of Summer by Harriet Reuter Hapgood. Thomas and Gottie are in the kitchen for this scene. {pg. 104}

The Square Root of Summer

“Told you I was terrible,” I say cheerfully. I’d faked my laughter at the school exhibition, pretending to make fun of myself, but somehow with Thomas, it’s real. I’m terrible and it’s okay. “Your turn. Why baking, really?”
“Everyone says you have to be superprecise to bake– like your extra-credit thing, the time travel project. One calculation out of place and the whole thing would go wrong, right?”
“Yeah…”
“It’s hogwash!” Thomas announced gleefully. I’m charmed by his use of the word hogwash— it reminds me of the pigs at the fair. He points at the bowl. “Look at this– bit of eggshell in there, scoop it out with a finger, what the hell. Too much flour, forget the butter, drop the pan– it doesn’t matter how many mistakes you make, it mostly turns out okay. And when it doesn’t, you cover it with icing.”

This week I am featuring Paper and Fire by Rachel Caine. This scene takes in the garden room at the Iron Tower. {pg. 268}

Paper and Fire (The Great Library, #2)

Jess sat down on a bench and poured himself a cup of hot tea from the waiting pot; his hands were steady enough to hold it now, at least. As he drank, Glain came through. She arrived unconscious, and blood leaked in thick drips from her uniform’s trouser leg onto the couch. The Obscurist stood up, suddenly very tall and active, and went to her side….
… This all seemed so strange. He’d expected to arrive in a dark, forbidding world filled with angry soldiers ready to take them down, or, at least, in a place no better than the torture chamber beneath the basilica. But there was a kindly man and tea, flowers, and a Medica team hurrying now into the garden to tend to Glain. Maybe they didn’t know they were welcoming fugitives, sworn enemies of the Archivist. Maybe word hadn’t come here at all, and once it did, the bars would finally close in on them.
He drank all the tea quickly, just in case. It was the first liquid he’d had in what seemed like hours, and he was severely thirsty…

This week I am featuring The Elite by Kiera Cass. This scene takes place at a party that the Elite are attending between American and some relatives of the Italian princess. {pg. 180-181}

The Elite (The Selection, #2)

“This is delicious!” Orabella cried, raising her glass of wine.
“We’re glad you like it,” I replied, worrying that I was coming across as too shy. They were so loud when they talked.
“You must have some!” she insisted. I hadn’t had anything to drink since Halloween, and I wasn’t very fond of alcohol in the first place. I didn’t want to be rude, though, so I took the glass she handed me and sipped.
It was incredible. Champagne was all bubbles; but the deep, red wine had several flavors overlapping, each coming to the forefront in its own time.
“Mmmm.” I sighed.

This week I am featuring The A to Z of You and Me by James Hannah. Chef Jef is trying to get Ivo’s breakfast order and Sheila is attempting to help in this scene. {pg. 7}

The A to Z of You and Me

“I tell you what,” says Sheila to me, “how about if we get you something simple, and you can see how you feel when it gets here? I’d like you to eat something this morning, even if it’s only a couple of bites. How about something soft and easy, like scrambled eggs?”
I can’t answer. I don’t want anything.
“Yeah? Scrambled eggs?” Jef is looking at me brightly.
“How about that?” says Sheila. “Or poached? Or fried?”
“I don’t do fried,” says Jef.
“Oh no, course! Well, scrambled then? Or poached?”
I can’t answer this.
“I’d like you to have something. It’ll get your strength up, and maybe everything won’t look so gloomy, will it?”
So.
They’re waiting.
“Poached.”
“Poached?”
I nod.
