Happy Leftover Appreciation Day!

Congrats to Gary for knocking out 8 and winning this week's Rogue Riddle! Gary has offered to write Riddle day 1051. I'm looking forward to playing again 😅

Hey all,

No overnight updates. Gary is still in the lead with 8, followed by Lars with 2. Instead of score updates, some hints :-)

1. Make a biopic about the Mamas and the Papas, taking over a female lead part, while you make this dish: CASS ROLE / CASSEROLE

2. Your main ingredient for the previous dish should not come fresh from the grocery store. The best ones are dumpster dived from this colored receptacle in the back of the store: GREEN BIN / GREEN BEAN

3. Undercook your meat. The food poisoning will give you the motivation to run these morning races: TURKEY TROTS

4. Import your fruits from Australia. Use the red ones to make this fantastic sweet and sour accoutrement for the meat: CANBERRA SAUCE / CRANBERRY SAUCE

5. Go to the Apple Store. Get a new computer. Play calming music to revitalize your spirit as you prepare this dish: IMAC AND CHIS / MAC AND CHEESE

6. Strike a small fire and cook your spuds over it. The smaller the flame, the tastier the char when you serve these later: MATCHED POTATOES / MASHED POTATOES

7. Go play some tennis while this dish is cooking. Make sure you emulate that German tennis player, though - the food won't taste nearly as good of you can't verb her name by the end: STEFFI-ING / STUFFING

8. At some point during the day, be sure to turn on the big game for your family. Watching that team lose again will distract your family from all these small and unoriginal fibbings you should tell them: DE TRITE LYINGS / DETROIT LIONS

9. If you have leftovers when you wake up the next morning, cook them in a pan on high heat. Cook em real good too. The best leftovers are so dark and charred, you can taste then the whole day while you're out shopping: BLACK FRIED DAY / BLACK FRIDAY

10. Above all else, you should make sure to celebrate the holiday in true American fashion: controversially transferring military vehicles to local police departments. You know, like the grateful Pilgrims did with the natives: TANKS GIFTING / THANKSGIVING

Be easy, y'all.
