I was invited to Ethiopian Night at a friend's house, which meant making an Ethiopian dish to share. Once I found a recipe named "Cabbage of Ostracism," I was hooked. How could I pass that one up? Of course, I worried a bit about the ostracism part - hoping that there were not gaseous outpourings upon ingestion that caused one to be ostracized.
It looked and tasted pretty normal, if anything I would have liked it spicier. And no ostracism that I detected.
But it made me think how much fun it would be to name our dishes in this way. Meatloaf of Mediocrity, Eggs of Anxiety, Beneficent Brownies, Cauliflower of Conjecture, etc. The possibilities are endless. Tonight I think I'll go with Fish Tacos of Tenacity.
Would love to hear your creative suggestions.
