(A marvelous smelling pun!  Lots of garlic and black pepper.  Hold the anchovies!  A lot of recipes for Caesar Salad don’t actually use anchovies anyway.  Supposedly they get that salty tang from the Worcestershire sauce.  And, I’m glad for that.  I’m not a big fishy guy.

All of today’s clue words are currently residing on the ralis95 clue word database.  However, all seven jumbles appear to be new!  I did not struggle with any of them tough, which is a little unusual.  The answer letter layout was super seventeen letter jumble.  Nothing obvious about it.  For me, it was the word “sauce” in the one guy’s dialog that set me down the right path, for the final answer.  I guess there’s really no good alternative for the word dressing, when it comes to salad.  Vinaigrette is a little too specific, I suppose.  Hey, why haven’t we Anglicized the word vinaigrette to vinegarette?  Is it because the “ette” kinda keeps it French regardless?  Does anyone, but me, even care?  I guess they had no choice but to go with “sauce”, because it is a sort of sauce.  With turkeys, at least, you have the option of calling the bread, sausage, veggies, and mushroom concoction either dressing, or stuffing.

Classy restaurant scene cartoon.  No chicken fingers or loaded potato skins on this menu.  Technically, this qualifies as a period piece cartoon, but it would be kinda hard to pin down.  According to good old Wikipedia this is likely sometime in the later 1920s.  Lots of fun though.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    UR, aren’t you in the upper NY state area? Did you all get hit with that crazy heavy snow and winds that the Weather Channel was reporting?? Hope you all are safe and sound, and snug with lots of cocoa! -jenn

    Born and raised in the suburbs of Rochester, NY, Jenn. But, fortunately, I’ve lived 30 miles northwest of NYC for all of my adult life. We have had a remarkably snow-free winter this year. No more than 7-8 inches for the entire season, with none in sight, according to the weather people. I like a moderate amount of snow, but I’m not missing what my relatives are getting!

    Oh gotcha, UR! Glad you escaped all that! Sames here in the Indy area, not much snow at all. I love snow flurries, especially when there’s no shoveling involved! Throw in a good book, (a real book!) and it’s a perfect day! Toasting you with my hot chocolate-coffee pick-me-up as we speak! jenn

    Many thanks for thinking of me, TJ! My back is not currently up to shoveling, so no complaints for the lack of snow. — YUR

    Vinaigrette is just fine. But it dresses something finer.
