Action in the kitchen and other fun things for Thursday
Our fun friend Owl Meat has come up with another food-oriented crossword for us, but we need some ground rules. What do you think? How long should we give people to work on it before allowing anyone to shout out the answers? On the other hand, maybe it should be a group activity?
Here's what the Owl has to say about his puzzle:
"Blistering heat, Weltschmerz and too much free time ... what's a boy to do? After kicking my withering addiction to huffing ditto masters, I've got all kinds of time and brain space. So here is the second Dining@Large crossword puzzle ... now with 33 percent more. Bigger, meatier, and more themey. Plus welcome back Funtastic Thursday's mascot happy flaming banana thing whose true identity will be revealed in a future puzzle.
Today's theme is 'Action in the Kitchen'! There are 12 answers that are forms of verbs used in restaurant kitchens and lots of other food-related clues and answers. There is also an obscure Seinfeld reference and the new verb 'Schnabelled.'
Because you are such clever monkeys, I made some of the clues more tricky. For example: Our country is messed up on golf gear = SAUTEES (USA 'messed up' + Tees) Oh yeah. This is where we separate the maguro from the toro.
Good luck. ..."
