Thursday's Thoughts: a taste of what I'm thinking
I seem to be at a loss for words. Let's learn some new ones and try not to lose those too. You know I like random, so here goes...
1. tsukemono - Japanese-style pickled vegetables served with practically every meal, including breakfast
2. schadenfreude - enjoyment or entertainment acquired from another's misfortune
3. callaloo - Green leaves of the tarro root. These edible leaves are often used in soup in the Caribbean islands.
4. obnubilate - to make unclear or vague
5. syriniki - a Russian dish in which a mixture of pot cheese or farmer's cheese, eggs and flour are formed into cakes and fried. Syrniki can be either sweet or savory.
6. forficate- deeply notched or forked
7. kipful - a crescent-shaped cookie or yeast pastry filled with nuts and brown sugar
8. haver - to waste time talking foolishly
9. mahleb- ground black-cherry pits used to flavor baked goods in the Middle East
10. flageolet- a small, tender French kidney bean having a creamy white to pale green color
