Terramisu

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: terəmēsoō

Sentence: People love to invite Ruth to their parties. She is witty and funny. They did however learn their lesson about inviting her to a pot luck dinner. She brought what she referred to as tiramisu. Her fellow party goers called it terramisu. Being the creative person she is, Ruth did some substituting when she found herself short a few ingredients, hotdog buns for the lady fingers, tea for the coffee, and cottage cheese for the mascarpone. The final touch of chocolate chips subbing for powdered chocolate made it look like her dessert was infested with bugs. Everybody told Ruth how **interesting** her treat looked but nobody was brave enough to try a single bite.

Etymology: terror or terrible (your choice) + tiramisu (an Italian dessert consisting of layers of sponge cake soaked in coffee and brandy or liqueur with powdered chocolate and mascarpone cheese)

Created by: rombus

Pronunciation: dee - meel - eor - ate

Funny thing was that Sandra actually considered herself to be a cooking genius. "Let's see, I think I'll start out with turkey beast, stuffed with makerel-raisen cornbread. Hmmmm potatoes mashed with curry/anchovie paste would be good but I'll leave the rolls alone this year.
