Thursday's Thoughts: Words

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

Food for Thought: "Success is not final, failure is not fatal; it is the courage to continue that counts." -Winston Churchill
