Ain't nobody gonna tell you that we get the best food out here in the black. We make do with protein and other processed things, canned goods and the like. I try to make it a bit more festive than it might be, but really, there's only so much you can do with most of that.

When we get something fresh, like when the Preacher came on board, it's a real treat. And to my way of thinking, there's nothing that's more of a treat than fresh, real strawberries. Right when they're all ripe and bursting with juice. They're sweet, but not too sweet, 'cause they've always got just that bit of tartness to them. You bite in, an' it's like a little bit of heaven dancing there on your tongue with the sweet and tart all mingling and making your tongue curl up and your cheeks tingle.

I can't ever stop at just one, but I'll take as long as I can with that one, making every bite mean somethin' special, 'cause you never know when you're going to get another one. You got to make it last, and if there's more than one, you got to make that last even longer. It won't do just to gobble them up without takin' the time to savor them, really feel the way they feel and the way that they taste.

At this party we went to once, they had 'em served with cream. It was real cream, too, all thick and sweet, but, like the strawberries, not too sweet. Just right. The strawberries seemed tarter for it, and the cream just swirled all around them like the clouds scattered through a clear atmosphere when you're bringing the ship in low and they just lie there and make everything that much prettier.

I can't think of anything better in the 'verse, least not for eating.

I now have a craving for strawberries and cream. :P

Well, that ain't a bad craving to have at all, 'less you can't get any.

Generally, I can't get any. Aidan eats them all before I get my hands on them.

Well, that just ain't right at all. Much as I love them, I try an' make sure the whole crew gets some.

Aidan has an addiction to them. I generally manage to find a way to get a taste anyway though, one way or another.

Now that sounds like it might have a bit of wickedness behind it.

Okay, so maybe just a little bit.

*grins* Okay, so maybe a lot.

*grins back* Can't be too good all the time.

Heck, I can't even be good most of the time.

(Just a general Kaylee. Warren can feel free to rep and she'll answer as his Kaylee. *likes this idea*)

So, if I were gonna call Layla at home and say it was a strawberry emergency, what would I get?

Date: 2007-09-28 04:15 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] xiaomeimei.livejournal.com
Probably just about anything you wanted.

Ooh. I like the sound of that. Maybe I should declare a strawberry emergency.

That wouldn't be entirely untrue.

Maybe I'll do that then.

Maybe we can get a little strawberry plant to keep with us.

...A strawberry plant? Like to grow them on the ship?

Uh-huh. I don't know if that'd be possible, but it seems like it would. I don't think the plants are that big.

Cap'n lets me have flowers sometimes, though they don't always do so well in the black.

Well, we can try strawberry plants, if you want?

Date: 2007-09-30 08:50 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] xiaomeimei.livejournal.com
You figured out how to do that?

Date: 2007-10-01 01:55 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] firebugwarren.livejournal.com
I think so? I think we got all the bugs worked out.
