DIshes that start with L

lisabnyc May 15, 2011 01:44 PM

I am helping throw a lingerie & kitchen tool themed shower....i want to change it from the usual name of "^%$ in the kitchen" to something a bit more tasteful. i was thinking of calling it "lace and linguini" but i don't like the sound of any foods I can think of that starts with an L. this bride knows her food, so i would like to think of a more sophistiicated dish than lasagna, linguini, lo mein, etc.

any ideas?

            aw, thanks to you & Janet for the compliments! word games/challenges are fun for me, even more so when it involves subject matter so dear to my heart - i could play this one all day ;)

            Lace and lutefisk.

            I have images of the Swedish Bikini Team in lingerie handing out bottles of Old Milwaukee.

              Not something you'll feel like showing off in lingerie after devouring, perhaps, but delicious nonetheless.

                  Stop at "lace & limes." Margaritas and mojitos for everyone!

                            lagniappe - Ok, not food per se but, everyone appreciates a bit "extra" at the end. I know I do.

                                Lace and Lardon sounds like a porn flick though.

                                  that was the name for the International release, in the US the marketing suits threw a fit so it had a different title for distribution. I forget the name, banjo's and backwoods types, I think Ned whathisname was in it. De - L something or other.

                                  I can add that 'tree-bark' bread called lavosh. Actually, the loaded variety isn't too bad with hummus.
