Eating Your Words - A Challenge

Friday, February 20, 2009 37 comments
A little blurred but you get the idea

If what we eat reveals who we are, then it might as well be spelled out clearly! So pump up those creative juices, head into the kitchen and let your food do the talking.

Savor the Thyme and I invite you to think outside the bread box and utilize fruits, vegetables, noodles, milk, coffee or just about any food or beverage to spell out a message. The prize? The admiration of millions and a chance to flaunt your creativity throughout the food blogosphere.

The details:

1. 'Write or spell' using food or drink and create a blog post about it from now (the date of this post) until midnight on Friday, March 6th. Any previous blog posts you already have where you've created a 'written'-inspired dish or drink will be accepted.

2. Blog about your creation, including photos, and add a link back to Savor the Thyme ( and Tangled Noodle (

3. Send an e-mail titled 'Eating Your Words' to with the following information:
  • Your name
  • The name of your blog
  • The name of your dish or drink
  • Your food blog name and the link to your entry, including pictures, by midnight March 6, 2009
You can still participate even if you don't have a blog at all. Simply e-mail the above information minus the blog details and we'll include it in the round up.

4. Please keep it clean! Appropriate humor is always welcome.

Happy creating!

    This should be fun. I'm just worried that I'll misspell something and not catch it until it's too late. I'm looking forward to seeing entries in Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Arabic, Braille...Not that I'll be able to read them, but still.

    Sapuche - What a great idea: maybe I should try something in Tagalog. [Sigh] I am so English-centric!

    Phanitha - Thanks! I hope you'll join in. I cut out letters from tin foil and put them over the bread before I toasted. I didn't realize how hard it was so I'm glad it was a short message! 8-)

    MedKiwi - Great! I bet your children can come up with ideas, too!

  • Tangled Noodle said...

    Lori - I hope all those wonderful fresh fruits in Brazil will provide inspiration!

    Jessie - It is and we can't wait to see what people come up with!

    Eric - Have fun with it! Alphabet soup is the standard so it's never completely out of the picture. Sapuche suggested different languages - that would be fun, rooting through alphabet soup to find the right letters!

    Scotty Snacks - Great! Looking forward to seeing what you come up with. BTW, thanks for visiting - I just popped into your blog and got hooked on Bayne's Magic Sauce! I also liked the blueberry and white choc sugar cookies; great idea to use clarified butter.

  • Scotty Snacks said...

    Thanks Tangled Noodle, so glad you liked what you saw! Let me know what you think when/if you make the magic sauce and/or the bcc cookies - I hope you do give them a try!
