    Sorry. Ever since JanewayRulz! mentioned Alfarian Hair Pasta, I've been distracted by wondering how often it gets stuck between the teeth.

    :ack:

    ACK!

    I think I'd rather contemplate Neelix's darvot fritters... although to be honest I doubt I could eat anything that turned a "deep chartruse" when it was done.

    :p

    What color IS chartruse, anyway?

    :rolleyes:

    "Well, it's... uh... it's green."

    Between yellow and green. There used to be a Crayola crayon called chartreuse.

    Hmmmm, fritters the color of "not yellow, not green" crayons do not excite me too much. :vulcan:

    Now... a jimbalian fudge cake sounds delicious even though its blue. :drool:

    Why is there no blue food? I can't find blue food - I can't find the flavor of blue! I mean, green is lime; yellow is lemon; orange is orange; red is cherry; what's blue? There's no blue! Oh, they say, "Blueberries!" Uh-uh; blue on the vine, purple on the plate. There's no blue food! Where is the blue food? We want the blue food! Probably instores immortality! They're keeping it from us!

    In the lap of squalor I assure you.
    In the fruit section at the supermarket, they were selling blueberries side by side with dvds of the new Smurf movie.

    I giggled because Smurfberries are red.

    Raspberry-ish, though also with a kind of perfumey note. We have a milkshake flavour called blue heaven.

    Blue seems to be associated with grape a lot here, at least with carbonated soft drinks. I seem to remember a grape ice cream during the '60s, but it might have been from a local dairy. Sort of like cherry vanilla, but with little pieces of grapes in it.

    We barely have grape flavour here. Maybe some gum, that's about it.

    But we do have MUSK. Which is delicious.

    There was a popular men's cologne here in the 70s known as Jovan Musk.

    And now I'm reminded of the Captain & Tennille's song "Muskrat Love".

    Which reminds me of the Cowardly Lion's "What makes the muskrat guard his musk? Courage."

    True, and then of course in the pilot there was Tom's plain, hot tomato soup!

    Or Seska's Mushroom soup that she used to seduce Chakotay.

    For some reason, this put me immediately in mind of the chief inspector in Hitchcock's Frenzy who had to deal with the consequences of his wife's Continental cooking lessons.

    Such as the following:

    Neelix worthy?

    At the same time, I do think it was meaningful to him that the crew found his work product satisfying, at least to some degree on their own terms and expectations. I believe there were a number of instances when he incorporated suggestions and requests from folks for dishes from home, even if they didn't meet his own definition of "haute cuisine".

    By the way, I can't recall, but was he demonstrably jealous of Seven's efforts at setting and provisioning a fine table, complete with her wine directives?;)
