Main Course:
Mabel’s Scrambled Eggs
I made scrambled eggs in the drafty kitchen with my coverlet wrapped around me while Ev tried, in vain, to start a fire in the woodstove. (page 193)


Masha’s Omelets
Masha made us omelets and homefries and thick-cut bacon. The salty aroma filling the empty Dining Hall sent me into paroxysms of joy.  (page 117)



Side Dishes:
Thick Cut Bacon
He fed me. Bacon, crispy. Eggs, scrambled. Warmed blueberry muffins he found in the freezer and drizzled with honey. (page 218)

Lu’s Sourdough Bread
[I]n the first twenty-four hours I knew her, Lu picked wildflowers from the meadow for Bittersweet’s kitchen table, mixed me a batch of sourdough starter, and taught me how to do the Australian crawl. (page 97)

Galway’s Blueberry Muffins drizzled with Honey

I simply walked in her direction, cutting into my apple with an appetite it wouldn’t long satiate. I though of Eve and her apple, wandering in Eden. (page 239)Bittersweet

To Drink:
Coffee: [John] poured himself half a cup of coffee, which he drank in one gulp, spilling a bit down the front of his red flannel shirt. (page 265)

Black Tea    
“You take milk? Sugar?” Birch asked as a woman carried a tea tray onto the sunny porch. (page 144)

“You from around here, May?” Murray demanded as he thrust a glass of champagne into my hands. (page 108)

…I sank into the red chair with a glass of lemonade. (page 41)
