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.

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.
