French fries.

Clarinet, piano, cello and guitar.

Mottel said...

TRS: Come again?
LE7: Half right.

le7 said...

Clarinet, piano, trumpet, saxophone.

Mottel said...

3 out of four . . . you still have one more to go - and it's the toughest! Think 'Grandfather'

le7 said...

Clarinet, piano, trumpet, ukelele.

Mottel said...

you're back to two out of four.

le7 said...

Clarinet, piano, saxophone and bagpipes.

Mottel said...

No no no. Grandfather was an exact clue . . . . Do some research. And what about the actual riddle?

le7 said...

Too lazy. I have other stuff to do.

e said...

some kind of produce that's mixed with water and baked or maybe cooked. and then eaten.

sarabonne said...

those that le7 listed plus a clarinet or flute? maybe violin.

Regarding the riddle, copper comes to mind but outside of that I haven't any idea.

Mottel said...

-E: You're on the right path.
-Sarabonne: Le7 got Clarinet, Piano and Sax right . . . the last one is yet to be found. My clue: You got the duck, but what of the Russian Grandfather?

sarabonne said...

I don't know anything of you Russian grandfather. Did he play the balalaika?
As for the riddle, is it a pipe? A red copper pipe with green mold that turns black with age, heat and time. Water comes out for a nice glass of water.

Mottel said...

No no no! It was a Bassoon people - the instrument used to play the Grandfather in 'Peter and the Wolf'! The clarinet was the duck . . .
E was on the right track, follow his line of thinking

Cheerio said...

what do people do with these points?

le7 said...

Can we redeem them for chocolate cookies baked by your lovely wife?

Chana said...

What's in it for me?

Mottel said...

-Cheerio: E is the master of the points. But in short, points can:
1. Be used to get more points
2. Collected and saved
3. Traded with friends
4. Hoarded for glory
5. By Blogging favors like the right to write a guest post
6. Saved traded in for nice Beers if you take me out to a pub (If you think Corona is a "good beer" then this one doesn't apply to you
7. Used as an exemption on your tax return.

-LE7: Ask her :)

Modeh B'Miktsas said...

So how many beers does my 10 points for trs's name get me?

Anonymous said...

the nilus? or something to do with the makkos.

Mottel said...

-Modeh: It was worth about three points . . . which would get you a chance to go out and buy me beer.
-Anon: Nope.

The Answer:
Coffee!
The coffee cherry is red, the seed inside is green.
The bean is roasted until it turns black - then ground ("unbound")
Hot water goes through the grinds - to make a perfect treat.
E gets 4 points for his analysis of what was going on, despite not figuring out what exactly it was.

chanie said...

Meh- guess it was too good. Coffee cherry? First I've heard of it. Isn't it a coffee bean?

But whatever, I admit defeat for the first- and hopefully the last- time. You stumped me with this one.

Mottel said...

The bean comes from a fruit on a tree, at times called a cherry (it isn't though)
