When I read a book, some of my favorite parts are the meals. I love long, detailed descriptions of what my favorite character is eating. Even if it makes me need a snack halfway through the chapter.
Illustration Friday’s topic this week is “Frozen”.
As Elmreth tastes her bubbling pot of wild mushrooms and sweet onions, flavored with secret warming herbs; we can imagine the brave hero who lies cold and near death in the snow behind her. His skin a pale blue, his fingers clenched stiff, his cracked lips waiting for a life-giving taste… but not until it’s just right. A little more tarragon perhaps?
