Question about the word short, in foods (there is a point to this, I promise).

A friend wants to throw a party for the Shorty Awards (http://bit.ly/hqngTt) and I was thinking the food theme could be foods containing the word "short," like short ribs and shortcake. Can you think of any others? Short-order food? Thanks, in advance!

Foods that have a "short" texture (using the archaic form of the word meaning crumbly), so any kind of shortbread, or pastry with shortening.

Apparently, Shorty Tang aka 'The Sesame Noodle King' of Chinatown, was believed to have come up with the iconic New York version of that recipe...so, Shorty Tang's Sesame Noodles?

Let's not forget strawberry (or any other berry) shortcake. (That would be in the category of "short" pastries, meaning a lot of fat.) ;o)

And short grain rice would qualify too, wouldn't it?

Shrimp! TiggyBee, that's so funny! I was going to suggest the comparatively unfunny petits fours.

One of my daughters-in-law claims to be 5"2" but no one believes her. She was eating something I made, and a son (not her husband) suddenly yelled, "Trina! Don't eat that!" so she dropped it like it was poison or something, and Andy said, "Mom put Crisco in it. It's shortening."
