Panpaltry

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: pan-PAL-tree

Sentence: Veejay was constantly amazed by modern technology. His three-minute egg timer only set him back $59.95 per month with a two year commitment. But it was SO much more than a communication device. It was a full-blown ringamajig, and he was proud of it. To Veejay his phone was a PANPALTRY without which his traditional lemon curry dishes would be impossible to prepare. It was a wondrously indispensable tool, a symbol of his upward mobility, and the world's only splatula which could download ringtones. Unfortunately, it left a metallic aftertaste in the falafels.

Etymology: PANtry+PAL+panTRY=PANPALTRY.....PANTRY:a room (as in a hotel or hospital) for preparation of foods on order;Middle English panetrie, from Anglo-French paneterie, from paneter servant in charge of the pantry, from pain bread, from Latin panis.....PAL:a close friend;Romany phral, phal brother, friend, from Sanskrit bhrātṛ brother; akin to Old English brōthor brother.

Cheffone

Created by: silveryaspen

Pronunciation: Chef Phone

Sentence: Patsy mixed together egg yolks, lemon juice and sugar. She stirred them gently over simmering water until thick and creamy. Patsy carefully combined grated lemon zest and softened gelatin with them. Patsy removed this creamy thick lemon custard from the heat so it could cool. She whipped egg whites into stiff peaks and sweetened them with a little sugar. She folded and feathered the egg whites into the creamy custard, poured it into a graham cracker pie crust shell, then let it chill well. Since Patsy got this recipe from her cheffone, used her cheffone as the timer for the simmering and the chilling, used the cheffone to listen to music while the lemon pie chilled, then took a cheffone picture of it ... Patsy called it her cheffone pie.

Etymology: CHEF, PHONE, as well as a play on Chiffon Pie. CHEF - a professional cook. PHONE - an electronic apparatus containing a receiver and transmitter that is connected to a telecommunications system, and in many cell phones, is connected to other networks of information, and can even take pictures. Chiffon Pie - custard pies that have been made lighter and airier with whipped egg whites; a dessert.

Utencell

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: yu ten sell

Sentence: Gary was the gadget guy. If it hadn't been already, he would invent it. Like his microwave TV,his food-word processor, his short-wave electric frypan, his blogblender, his curling-clothes iron and his toaster stereo. His latest multiappliance was a cell phone which could plan a menu, phone in a grocery delivery order, provide recipes and signal when to do what and for how long. He called it his Utencell. His girlfriend, Myra, wondered how long it would be before all these devices plotted to get rid of Gary, because they really did not need him, except to replace their batteries and plug them in. Yes, the Gadgetry Revolutionaries, the Widget Fondas, the Contraptionistas and the Political Apparatus were building up steam to end the Gizmo Gitmo in Gary's Kitchen!

Etymology: Utensil (an implement for practical use (especially in a household) & Cell (cellular telephone;a hand-held mobile radiotelephone for use in an area divided into small sections (cells), each with its own short-range transmitter/receiver)
