Vest-Pocket Vocabulary

I’ve been flipping through a full-colour cookbook of vegetarian pasta dishes this afternoon, trying to think of what to make for dinner. I suspect that has biased my choice of Vest-Pocket Vocabulary this week.

Ciba′rious, adj. relating to food; eatable.

Word in the Wild: Most of the time my coworkers and I talk about cibarious topics on the subway. We should probably start packing bigger lunches.

Next time you’re out for dinner and your meal is lack lustre and your host asks you about your meal, but you don’t want to offend*, you can confidently  say “It’s cibarious, thank you!”


*This won’t work if your host also reads this blog. You’ve been warned.
