    Yuck. Melba toast is one of the most pointless foods invented.

    Put some bacon on the top and then we'll talk.

    office was good -- i think the snow kept a few away, but it still was pretty busy

    got far too hammered, woke up this morning on my friends couch and had no idea where I was [​IMG]

    i should point out that all it took was a little bit of melba to cure those mornin' blues

    melba toast is probably very absorbant, sucking away all those alcohol rates almost as fast as the legendary sphagnum peat moss, the most absorbant substance in the entire space-time continuum.

    Melba Toast

    WHAT? The toast of the town. The beloved Australian soprano Dame Nellie Melba could practically fill a cookbook with the culinary creations that she inspired. There is Peach Melba, Melba Sauce, Melba Garniture (tomatoes stuffed with chicken, truffles, and mushrooms that are bound with velouté), and, of course, Melba Toast. Auguste Escoffier, legendary chef of The Savoy, created both Peach Melba and Melba Toast. The story goes that the thinly sliced, crisp toast was served to Dame Melba on a day that she was indisposed. (Another source says its creation had more to do with the Rubenesque singer's never-ending struggle to lose weight.) According to John Mariani's Dictionary of American Food and Drink, Melba Toast was first mass-produced by the Devon Bakery in New York City.
