A cup of boullion
Besides a lot of coffee in many of these novels (strange to read of younger folks drinking it, when we Gen-Xers are soda freaks), I'm also noticing people drinking "a cup of boullion." That's odd (in a good way) to me, because back home in Iowa boullion is what you put into a slow cooker with chicken or beef. Tongue We Midwesterners would say "a cup of broth," not boullion. Wink

Must be an eastern US expression? If so, is it still commonly used?

I also enjoy the element of food in most of these stories. Puts a touch of home and heart into otherwise morbid surroundings. Goes nicely with the romance. But then...I've always thought of food as a romantic indulgence.
