Apocalyptic Meal (fun language)

When I cook meals that are intended to empty my fridge, or lots of containers in them with only a little ingredient in each, I call them apocalyptic meals.

They’re symbolically apocalyptic in a few ways:

  • They wipe out a lot of the food left, if not all of it.
  • There is no food left for tomorrow, cause you’re assuming there won’t be a tomorrow. πŸ™‚

Seriously, why call them empty out the fridge meals, or some term like quiche that’s a mish-mash of leftovers, when you can use a more potent term like apocalyptic meal? Sounds great on the phone, too!

“I’m cooking an apocalyptic meal for supper!”

Tonight’s edition, as an example, was a pasta salad that had grape tomatoes, half a dozen shrimps, green onions, mint leaves, cilantro, and some Pringles cracked and sprinkled on top after all the mixing so they wouldn’t get soggy in the mixing. Sun-dried tomato Italian dressing was used, with a touch of soya sauce for salty contrasting flavour. And you know what?

It didn’t taste apocalyptic! lol

I usually manage to make it so it actually tastes good to great! Tonight was a bit better than good. πŸ™‚
