Foodie Terms for Other Uses

a frothy musical number
making mincemeat out of her reputation
tempers boiled over
seared into memory
cocktail of various medications
hashed it out

how about some more, word-lovers?

Well, being "in the biz", I tend to say "86 on <insert item here>", whenever we're out of something at home. When you say "86 sour cream", it means no sour cream. At the kitchen I work at, it would mean no sour cream in the house. At some places, it just means leave the sour cream off the baker.

A <i>smorgasbord</i> of decisions
opening a <i>can</i> of worms (that more of a fishing thing)

good ones, Allen

curdled
enthusiasm
honing one's skills
raw honesty
half-baked idea
stale jokes
sandwiched in between.....

stirring the pot (those political, emotional, etc. pots)

Here are a few of Italian version...

When you say He is "un pezzo di pane" (a piece of bread), means he is a grand, awesome, lovely guy.

if something/someone is "una pizza", it/he/she is booo-riiiing.

"mozzarella" describes a person who is very pale and unathletic.

"un sacco di patate"(sackful of potatoes) also means someone with no athletic ability.

"fare una frittata" (make a frittata) means make a hash of something, mess up badly.

"salame" (or salami) means an idiot.

au contraire, buckster.

I am perfectly happy as a clam (how happy are those things, anyway?) and not in a pickle as you suggest. Fine kettle of fish you tried to create here, but you must wait for the pot to boil a little longer.
