Guesstronomy

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: gess tron om mee

Sentence: Rose and Herb always hated being invited to her sister, Saffron's, for dinner. They enjoyed her company, but hated her cooking. Saffron had a knack for combining inedible and unpalatable concoctions. She did not believe in throwing out food and so she "used" up whatever had withered/expired/gone bad in her fridge, freezer or cupboards to make her ghastly meals. She often added critters and noxious plants she found around the neighbourhood to the mix. To make matters worse, guests had to guess what was in these creations. Saffron joked that this was her Guesstronomy skills at work. Any one who survived their hospital visits after her cooking refused to return. Wishing to spare her feelings, Rose & Herb pretended to eat, but never did actually partake of these horrible repasts. They thought Saffron should become an Army cook, in an enemy's army! Sam & Ella, Toe Maine, Steph Infection, Mr. E. Coli and Bott Chewlism were the only other guests that attended these feasts and they always came back for more!

Etymology: Guess (an estimate based on little or no information; a message expressing an opinion based on incomplete evidence) & Gastronomy (the art and practice of choosing and preparing and eating food)
