Recipe creates one beasy mist, which may be shared separately or encountered alone in a snifter. Back door must be open and screen dirty, with dirty-screen smell, and yard must be gray. Enjoy!

Today’s prompt at NaPoWriMo.net is right up my alley: a poem inspired by a recipe. My poem was further inspired by the recently viral story of what happened when scientist Janelle Shane trained something called a neural network to come up with some names for new recipes. Some of its attempts sound like they could be in my 1961 Betty Crocker cookbook. I was especially taken with “beasy mist.”

Do you have a link to the original research? It sounds really interesting (and funny, of course…) 🙂
Yes, it’s http://lewisandquark.tumblr.com/post/140508739392/the-neural-network-has-weird-ideas-about-what. I edited so that the scientist’s name now links to her Tumblr. 🙂 While there, you can read one of the actual recipes it came up with, which is … wow.
I feel tempted to persuade someone to try out one of the recipes as a science project. 😉
I want to have a party where everyone has to make and bring one of these new dishes. 🙂
