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. :P

We Midwesterners would say "a cup of broth," not boullion. ;)

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.
