Strain your brain

I'm exercising my brain by making up weird food lists. Here's one:

Foods that cannot be improved by either salsa or chocolate sauce:

1. sushi rice

2. cream of mushroom soup

3. black licorice

4. sweet pickles

5. lobster

This isn't as easy as it looks. Here's another imagination-stretcher:

I will not eat ___ in ___:

1. I will not eat saucy chicken wings in bed.

2. I will not eat roasted chestnuts in the summertime.

3. I will not eat cheese-topped French onion soup in a formal setting.

4. I will not spaghetti with red sauce in a white dress.

5. I will not eat eels in this lifetime.


Add to my lists or make up a list of your own.

I will eat ____ but not ___ on a ____.

I will eat a chicken leg, but not chicken soup on a roller coaster.

I will eat a slice of watermelon, but not escargot on a back porch.

I will eat crepes suzette, but not a hamburger in an expensive restaurant. (If Brenda's buying...)

I like them, Bonnie. But the point was thinking up foods that even the most passionate lovers of salsa and chocolate sauce would never consider adulterating.

Laura, I haven't had crepes Suzette in years. You're making my mouth water?

Janice, pull my other leg, why dontcha? Not even a pregnant woman would stoop to putting chocolate sauce on pickles.

Maybe not chocolate sauce, but what about maple syrup? I love pure maple syrup and dill pickles! And no, I'm not pregnant!

Maple syrup and dill pickles? Please tell me you're kidding.

Here's something I learned just this morning: scrambled eggs are really good with port wine jelly.
