Word-erful Wednesday

I like playing with words. I like the way they sound when they roll over and refuse to sit still. I like the way the letters' pudgy bellies line up with their gangly, stick-straight legs. Today I tossed some adjectives and nouns together in a syntax salad when I wrote the bulletin announcement for our next church potluck.

Then later today, I saw a definition float by in my Twitter feed. From
Cooks term - Coddle: To cook in water at just below the boiling point. Usually eggs.

I immediately thought of another use for this word and couldn't help but dashing off this version:
Parents' term - Coddle: To bathe in sweetness at just below the spoiling point. Usually children.

Jason's Deli (my new friend) is looking for a name for their committee on products and concepts. I suggested The Good Taste Buds.

When I first went to college, I majored in a combination of home-ec and journalism so that I could write about (among other things) food. Isn't it funny the way life turns out?

It seems to be all the rage right now to have a book with lots of food in it. I'm not complaining!

Since you like words, I have a new one for you. I heard someone say "insinuendo" the other day. You have to give him credit for creativity!
