    Newbie "Fry Cook" Poster
    Dungeons & Dragons Soup

    the recipe mentions 1 cup of pepper, is this black pepper or green bell or something else entirely.

    It's hard to know. I would suggest contacting the posting chef and asking for clarification and correcting the recipe. Click on the chef's name and then click on "Contact the Chef" and send a personal Zmail.

    A cup of black pepper would :
    1. Render it inedible, and
    2. Cost a fortune!

    Yep. I doubt it is bell pepper but then who knows.
    It's likely some _______ teaspoon measurement.

    Knowing Abe Ray, I'm pretty sure it is black pepper. However, the instructions do say to add the remaining ingredients "as you see fit."

    I agree, considering who posted the recipe, it is probably 1 cup of black pepper.
    I also agree that that much black pepper will render the soup inedible no matter what other ingredients you add to it!

    Considering the name of the soup, I suspect the 1 cup of black pepper is the "dragon" part of the soup.....they breathe fire, don't they? icon_wink.gif

    IIRC Abe Ray was asking about other ingredients that might resemble elements in DnD. Could have been another recipe, though! icon_wink.gif

    I think the noodles were meant to represent spider webs.

    If pepper jelly is also being used, I'd think that chiles were meant as the "pepper", possibly. Cooking udon for 42 minutes adds yet another level of inedibility. They'd be more like paste than webs.

    This is a "tongue in cheek" recipe, and I suppose this thread was started as such, too.

    If that is the case, a note should be made in the recipe. I have a sense of humor but icon_rolleyes.gif icon_confused.gif

    Do you really expect that the recipe poster would state "this is a joke"? icon_lol.gif
    Should it be noted in the recipe, or by the person asking the question?

    There are actually several "joke" recipes in the database, and none I have seen have any statement that the recipe is humorous, yet anyone for whom English is a first language understands the humorous intention when reading them. The one for ice cubes is a prime example. If this one is a joke, it's beyond the ken of many people. I certainly don't see any evidence that the question asked at the start of this thread is a joke.
    Perhaps someone familiar with the joke could explain it for those of us for whom it is opaque? Because I sure don't get it.

    I suppose the continuance of this thread is the joke for the poster. How could anyone read the recipe and not conclude otherwise?

    ETA: There are those who somehow profess to knowing Abe Ray. Might they share "the light"?

    I've been a Dungeons & Dragons player since high school, and I see nothing to suggest why this would be related to D&D, nor to suggest any humorous allusions to the game. The poster appears to be active on the site, so I sent a Z-mail to inquire.

    The recipe poster doesn't "appear" to be anything. He/she has been active on the site very recently....appearance is reality. Nonetheless, I'd think a response would be forthcoming.
