While picking my daughter up from school today, her class was going through the alphabet and naming foods for each letter.
There were two letters that they could not come up with any food - U & X.
I have been searching and could not come up with anything. I turn to you for help. A food that starts with the letter U or the letter X.
Thanks for your help.
xanthan gum (not a food in itself)
Consulting the food lovers' companion:
udo (japanese vegetable), udon (japanese noodles), umeboshi (japanese pickled plums), upside-down cake
xxx sugar/10x sugar(powdered sugar)
Udo: Japanese form of Aralia or Ivy which have edible
Xerophagy: Derived from ancient Greece, referring to
the eating of dry foods such as bread
vegetable and water as a form of fasting
*(water is technically not a dry substance, you can
figure out the ancient greeks for it).
Xeres: Same as Jerez or Sherry wine.
Xylopia: Genus of trees or shrubs of the custard apple
This is fun -Ask your daughter if we can have some
more alphabets please.
I'm so glad you posted this! I'm in a scrabble group that has a potluck every (monthly) meeting. We all bring something that begins with the letter we drew the month before. Every time I draw a letter I cross my fingers against the "x". I won't have to do that anymore! (I made an upside down cake when I drew a "u")
