Theme Thursday: Food

Hosted by Reading Between the Pages

*A theme will be posted each week on Thursday

*Post it and don't forget to mention the author and title of the book
*Event is open for the whole week
*Link back to Reading Between the Pages
March is going to be all about making life easy. This month we will do ‘Pick what you see first‘ themes. So open the book you are reading, continue reading; pick the first mention of any name in it and post the snippet. The only condition is ‘No Ebooks’.. lets go traditional. Easy-peasy!!

And this week's theme is Food [first snippet having any relevance to food, eating, drinks, drinking, etc.]

Here's mine from Strange Murders at Greystones by Elsie N. Wright (p. 92):

"Poor Griggs dropped something in her hurry." Polly stooped to pick it up, and unwrapped it. It contained half a roast chicken. Polly threw herself into a chair and laughed.

"What ho! Old Griggs has been filching from the icebox! Griggs of all people! At her age! I certianly never suspected her of such a thing. Why, she used to make me go without my dinner if I so much as snitched a doughnut from the pantry."

I love this snippet! It's like a little story in itself. =) And it makes a great representative of (what I presume is) the Murder Mystery novel it comes from.
