The Culinary Meme: The Meaning of Thyme and Other Deep Questions

Welcome back to the 3rd edition of The Queen's Meme with Mimi Queen of Memes. Each week the type of meme will change; sometimes silly, sometimes serious, but always fun! Enjoy your time in the castle.


And remember, don't end up in the dungeon.



The Queen's Meme No. 3 is called the Culinary Meme. Contrary to popular belief, the Queen has been known to accidentally cook something edible. Although I've given the gift of food poisoning to a boyfriend or two in the past, I actually made the food you see here. Don't ask me how because I could never do it again. I made up the recipe and lived to tell it. I'll bet there are some good cooks out in the blogosphere. Show us your saucy side. Flip a hot burger and smooch on a mushroom. Strap on a sweet little apron with 3-inch heels (please don't do this guys) and pre-heat to perfection. I'm getting hungry now. How 'bout you? I can't wait to read your savory concoctions.



Dinner is at eight.



The Cooking Meme (What Is The Meaning of Thyme and Other Deep Questions)


1. If you could put thyme in a bottle, what is the first thing that you'd like to do?

2. Do eggs really crack or do they merely have a nervous breakdown?

3. Why are you whipping the butter? What did it ever do to you?


4. Do your spoons spoon in the drawer? Have you ever noticed? And more importantly, if wooden spoons spoon do they get splinters?

5. You hear: "Dumpling, my Dumpling, come hither." The candles are lit, the fondue is dipping, the Godiva is pouring, the scallions are steaming and the music is playing.....but wait, the windows are open.
Why did you close them?

6. Do you need a recipe to cook or are you a bohemian chef? Show us your reckless and wild side in the kitchen. Don't have one? Here's a recipe I made just for you: You will need a spatula, a whisk, a gallon of Chardonnay, a banana and a rump roast. What is the name of your dish?

7. After dinner, the dishes are so dirty that the dishwasher refuses to wash them.
What did they say to get in hot water?

8. Is your pot black?

9. What is the sexiest spice or condiment in your cabinet? What makes it so?

10. How much crock is really in your crock pot?




Thank you for playing the Queen's Meme this
week. My latest post: A Half-Lived Girl In A Polka Dot Dress





Once upon a time in a faraway Bloggiverse there lived a maiden named Queen Mimi Pencil Skirt. She slayed her own dragons, stoked her own fire and well.....wrote memes by the light of the Bloggingham moon. One day a kind blogger from England noticed her meme lovin' ways and royally crowned her Mimi Queen of Memes. As time passed in the peaceful kingdom of Bloggingham, her Royal Highness found comfort in the company of fellow bloggers who also loved memes. But the Queen had a wicked disposition too. It is widely reported in historical Blogosphere archives that any and all bloggers found guilty of not completing their memes were promptly thrown into the dreaded Bloggingham dungeon.
If I were you, I'd do the meme.

NEW DUNGEON PRISONERS:

Bookkitten - She called me mean.
Lynn at A Blog In The Rough - she told me to "have some chocolate and stop complaining" when asked about her spice drawer.

The nerve!

Mimi Lenox said...

Love in the Dungeon!
Eerie Tapestry has just jumped in the dungeon to save his true love, Lynn. They are so sweet.

I hope they enjoy the hot tub. Shhh! Don't tell Thom.

From The Anonymous Player:

1. If you could put thyme in a bottle, what is the first thing that you'd like to do?

Become a herbalist for sure. Always see myself in a medieval robe, prescribing strange medicines to all sorts of folk, like Brother Cadfael, perhaps, but without the monk bit.

2. Do eggs really crack or do they merely have a nervous breakdown?

Depends on their stress levels. If they're already half baked, it's definitely a breakdown, and if they're scrambled, then there's no hope of recovery. But brown, suntanned eggs in boiling heat, they just crack.

3. Why are you whipping the butter? What did it ever do to you?

It asked for it, honest. I'll try anything once if someone asks. Maybe.

4. Do your spoons spoon in the drawer? Have you ever noticed? And more importantly, if wooden spoons spoon do they get splinters?

Oh they do... I always end up with more spoons than I started with, for sure. The wooden ones never get splinters cos they wear themselves smooth.

5. You hear: "Dumpling, my Dumpling, come hither." The candles are lit, the fondue is dipping, the Godiva is pouring, the scallions are steaming and the music is playing.....but wait, the windows are open. Why did you close them?

To keep the romantic atmosphere inside, of course.

6. Do you need a recipe to cook or are you a bohemian chef? Show us your reckless and wild side in the kitchen. Don't have one? Here's a recipe I made just for you: You will need a spatula, a whisk, a gallon of Chardonnay, a banana and a rump roast. What is the name of your dish?

My reckless dish is Cream of creamed cake with a bit of fruit, with clotted cream, double cream, and crème chantille. And cream.

7. After dinner, the dishes are so dirty that the dishwasher refuses to wash them. What did they say to get in hot water?

Do I have to wash with *this* shower?

8. Is your pot black?

Ask the kettle.

9. What is the sexiest spice or condiment in your cabinet? What makes it so?

Chilli, but don't get it on your fingers before sex. Trust me on this. And don't try to use a wet cloth to get it off cos it makes things worse.

10. How much crock is really in your crock pot?

Not much when it's empty... But otherwise, full to capacity... c(r)oquilles st jaques. Yum!

Mr Anonymous said...
