Here's mine from That Hideous Strength by C. S. Lewis (p. 149):

Mrs. Maggs presently returned with a tray, bearing a glass, a small flacon of red wine, and a roll of bread. She set it down on a table at the Director's side and left the room.

"You see," said the Director, "I live like the King in Curdie. It is a surprisingly pleasant diet." With these words he broke the bread and poured himself out a glass of wine.
