New installment in our series:

This time I'd like to take you all to a very important topic: FOOD :lick: (Kim is a Belgian after all, so what would our quizlet series be without at least one culinary question? :angel: ;) )

Here we go:

What's Kim and Lleyton's favourite food when they pay a visit to Kim's grandparents?

According to the grandparents own quotes, do they serve them:

a) pancakes

or

b) french fries

or

c) minced-meat balls with black-cherries

or

d) sausages with red cabbage

?


Vote! :devil:



One little hint :angel: : Kim has said in interviews in Belgian press that she doesn't like "hotel food", how she's dying for Belgian cuisine...
so take your pick! :devil:

Good luck and please keep in mind:

Time to reveal the one and only true answer:

and it is.................................................... A!

Congrats to the 24 out of 45 voters who got it right! :worship:

Kim's grandparents indeed make pancakes for Kim and Lleyton when they pay them a visit (and they always do when they are in Belgium, the grandparents say).

Quote from grandfather of Kim:
"...when they are in Belgium, they always come to visit us. To eat pancakes, that's their favourite food."
source: interview June 2001 Belgian media


The red cabbage was put in to confuse a few :devil: as indeed Kim has stated several times that she likes to eat it instead of what she calls 'hotel food'.

Another one to confuse people a bit :devil: was the french fries option. Lleyton is crazy about our Belgian 'frieten' =french fries. According to Kim, they stop at a 'frituur' when they are back in Belgium. But it's not what her grandparents prepare for the couple though.

Throwing some more Flemish culture in this one: :angel: :p
The black-cherries with meatballs is no fantasy of mine though; :angel: it is a REAL traditional dish in Flanders. It might sound a bit exotic but it used to be a traditional dish in esp. the rural areas in the nord of Flanders and in Limbourg. Back in older days, it was considered as a 'must' in menus for holidays, esp. when carnivals were held. (note: don't understand my use of the word 'carnival' here as the Flemish, German and Dutch Limbourg carnival period before the Lent (= the 40 days before Easter), but in analogy with the more American use of the word: so as regular Flemish village festivities with fancy fairs.)


Re the latest standings in our extra competition: I'll post the updated results ASAP. (give me a bit of time plse: I am on vacation :) and still resting)
New installment of the quizlets: ASAP too :angel: beware: it will be a challenger :devil:

It's really, really time to post the last standings, isn't it :eek:


Last time, after quizlet 17, we had the following leaders in the ranking:

in ex-eaquo 5 people: Bigkimfan, Come-on-Kim, Fieke, Nicky and Sanstamtam. no newcomers in the top.


So who do we have leading now, after one more quizlet? (total number of quizlets taken into account is 8)


in ex-eaquo 3 people: Bigkimfan, Come-on-Kim and Nicky. :worship: :worship: :worship: Everyone of them gathered 7 points.

Fieke and Sanstamtam fell behind. Still in pursuit too:
Hawk and Majo, all 4 ex-eaquo, having 6 points.


The most successful one is no longer Sanstamtam though; she was until quizlet 18 the only one of the regular voters who got 100% of the votes right. She is now overtaken by Bigkimfan, Come-on-Kim and Nicky, as they have gathered 7 points out of 8 votes they did. As of quizlet 18 none of the regular voters got 100% of the votes right anymore. ( that :devil: of a mod, I assume :p )

Looking at the lower side of the ranking,...

Still 1 person has been the most unfortunate: he/she has 2 points out of 8 votes (=25%). Ranked in front of this person is 1 person with 2 points out of 7 votes (=29%).
We also have a bunch of people with 0 as result so far, but none participated enough to make it a significant figure (they all voted only once or twice).


As we have two more quizlets to go before we’ll know our first champions, who might still be a threat to the leadership of Bigkimfan, Come-on-Kim and Nicky?

The ones who still could overtake the leaders, are: Fieke, Hawk, Majo and Sanstamtam, followed by Aussie_Kim, Kim&Lleytonrule and Kit. :worship:
Unfortunately Angele87, Babkonzerv, and Duck can no longer challenge them now.
:awww: :hug:
However the ones in pursuit must be very good in the next two quizlets while the current leaders have to make a mess then.

So competition is still even more interesting with this latest standings...
Beware of what you post in your comments besides your vote!

Good luck with the upcoming quizlet!
Do visit the Lounge tomorrow, as you all will be presented with another quizlet then (if I am not withheld by circumstances). I am still undecisive between three questions I could use for this one... :devil: One thing is sure, it won't be about her current ranking :p

Dear Ingrid :worship: , I'm leaving on holiday as of friday, and I don't know if I'll be online much tomorrow...Could you please leave the quizlet open until I'm back (31/8)? I'd like a chance to defend that n°1 position ;) :p. :wavey:
Yes, sure. Oops, sorry, I forgot to mention I'll leave the quizlet open for far more than a week due to vacation...

So yes, it will be August 31 then.
