For the past three days, the kitchen at my office has been overwhelmed by a strong aroma of molasses.
No one has ‘fessed up to eating waffles or pancakes, or syrup in any of its forms, but the molasses smell remains.
Then I read that today is the anniversary of the Great Molasses Flood of 1919!
Now granted, it took place in Boston’s North End. And I’ve never thought of food as having a spirit life. But…
I’m pretty sure the molasses ghosts are in our kitchen.

I helped my friend Stephanie at her store Stoopher & Boots today.
My favorite find?
Is that sweet or what?

Anderson Cooper just tweeted that he ‘doesn’t see the point in waffles.’
He argues that they are just pancakes with holes in them. I like pancakes better myself.
I’m more interested in the idea of foods that ‘don’t have a point.’
I know I have a list.
- Anything that I have to ‘acquire’ a taste for
And on the day after Thanksgiving — when most people’s stomachs are stretched and sad from a day of overeating — more food and drink is bound to make that list.
What are your pointless foods?
Place them in the comments section…and we can rush to agree/argue!
