Re: Perfect! :-)

>>This one made me laugh aloud.<<

Yay!

>> Many of our traditional recipies include garlic (sometimes quite a lot of it), we even have a very popular spagetti dish (spaghetti aglio, olio e peperoncino) where the name and the recipe are one and the same, the 'sauce' is made mixing olive oil, pressed garlic and hot peppers (fresh or dried) with some Parmesan or old Pecorino cheese sprinkled on.<<

Hmm ... that sounds rather tempting. My partner would probably like that one. For myself, I'd have to tone down the heat, maybe swap in tomatoes and use just a little of less-molten peppers. I'm fond of olive oil as a cooking base or flavor boost, and we like ravioli. Must ponder.

>>It sounds like a very good trick to play on vampires, in fact I wouldn't mind if young Fiorenza became another regular character in your fishbowls.<<

That has potential. She's a more complex character than I usually see appearing in a poem -- three prime skills (related yet distinct), with a bifocal affinity for both magical and scientific thought. The obvious counterpoint is that some people would feel threatened by that, and she's not a good fit for any one traditional role. That's enough to complicate her life and make her able to respond to all different kinds of challenges.

Sure, feel free to suggest her any time she seems to connect with the theme, or if you want to see if I can find a connection.

Ah, I forgot to add that, in that recipe, the three ingredients are adjusted to taste, no need to put in a lot of either garlic or hot peppers, they are there to season the oil and the pasta, it must be savory but not overwhelming, and yes, it can be a good base to play with.

Yes, Fiorenza has the potential to find herself in a lot of 'interesting' situations I think, I'm definitely looking forward to that and Will keep her in mind for the next Fishbowls.

That's probably why the recipe engine in my head interpreted it as a base, then. Hee! Thank you for the tip.

*anticipatory wriggle* You give good prompts.
