The nicest compliment ever--

The circumstances are a bit vague, or I'm leaving them vague as an excercise to the user, but our new(ish) friend Brian was eating at our house Saturday night. I'd made lasagna. At some point, owing to circumstances left to the audience, but involving my lasagna, his heart, literally, stopped beating for some tiny amount of time. Enough for a little scare, but he decided not to call the ambulance.

The compliment--"Jacob, the lasagna was so good, I wanted to go back for a third helping, even though it gave me heart palpitations."

[warm, fuzzy glow] Jokes aside, this is the closest my cooking has come to killing someone :)

Too many compliments like that and they start going in your police file, you know.

More compliments like that and I might be able to lure the "live dangerously" crowd in with the threat of enchiladas. I'll start a restaurant: "The Last Supper." Hee. I'm still laughing about that one.

If you did that, and didn't have a dessert called 'Death by Chocolate', I will be sorely disappointed in you.

Well, I'd have to be specific--Chocolate Embolism, Cocoa Shock, el flan fatal de chocolate, you know.

There is no difference between good Flan and bad Flan.

I must point out
That Benegins had Death By Chocolate registered about 15 years ago. It is bad enough to have attempted-assassination-with-food, best not to add any sort of IP infringement, such as a trade/product-mark infringement.

May I point out that it was beef lasagna and that I suddenly feel much, much safer as a vegetarian? :)

Not quite.

Many a pot of glop has resulted in a near-deathbed repenting for past sins.
