This weeks quote is courtesy of Beast by Pepper Pace.

I liked this book and my review will be up tomorrow. There are some funny, serious and very sexxy times going on in Beast. I chose a funny one for today. Ashleigh is a big girl and this quote she said to Christopher had me giggling. They're naming off foods.

"Vegetables actually taste good to me."
Me too." She said while smirking. "I like all food--which is my big problem."
He huffed. "Yeah you say you do, but do you like brussel sprouts?"
"Yes; baked as a casserole with sliced onions and cheese. It's very yummy."
"On the grill with a slight dusting of parmesan cheese."
His eyes lit up. "Eggplant?"
"Sauteed or roasted, but best on a veggie sandwich. Believe me Christopher...I like all food."
"You're a foodie?"
"Yes." She gave him a sincere nod. "I would even eat a cow's eyeball if it's sauteed in butter and garlic."
Christopher cracked up laughing. "I can't quite go that far Ashleigh. Headcheese stops me cold. I once thought I saw an eyebrow in a slice of the stuff." He grimaced. Now it was her turn to laugh.
