2T Repeat Performance

In December, the lovely Magical Musings crew decided it was time to close down their blogging shop. I had three wonderful years with them. I thought you might be interested in seeing those posts now.

My Favorite Things—#8 Food, Beer, Wine--originally posted June 25, 2014

Let's get to know each other! In these first months as a Magical Musings blogger, I'm sharing my 10 favorite things and hope to hear about yours.

One of my great delights in life is good food and drink. Or is that two delights? I'm not picky—I like everything from fine dining to hamburgers (though I'm quasi-vegetarian so it's veggie burgers for me). I delight equally in expensive wine, cheap beer, and clean, cold water.

Enchiladas, beans, and rice
Here's a picture of one of the best meals I've eaten, from a strip mall restaurant. Cheese and onion enchiladas, fluffy rice, and refried beans spiced to perfection and topped with guacamole. Mmm.

I enjoy tasty food and crisp, refreshing drink, so much that food and drink figure significantly in my writing. I didn't have to go far to find this example, from Bite My Fire, Biting Love Book 1.

"I" is Elena O'Rourke, a cop who has just found out vampires are real.
A clunk caught my attention. The Princess slid a thick plate in front of Gretchen, a raspberry scone dwarfing it. Icing flowed like a glacier over the scone and onto the plate. Another whipped-cream-topped mug appeared at my elbow.
Food and drink. Homey warmth. It made the creepy recede a bit.
Cake!Strangely, much as I love food and drink, except for lemon meringue pie, I'm not that great a cook. I'd rather be writing about it. lol.

Fortunately my family makes up for my lack.

Here's a cake my son made in chef school. What about you? Do you like food and drink? What's your favorite?
