If you wrapped that idea in something solid (like spinach or little mini crepes) and sealed that closed with an egg wash, that'd work, because then the cheese'd be molten but have no where to run to.

    We received 2 knives and a loaded kinfe block as wedding gifts. from my parents and my grandfather. I see nothing wrong with giving a knife so long as you keep the superstition about the penny there. (by the by, Twibble, I had to scrounge in my change pocket in my car for your penny.)

    Do you need a penny to replace it? And why does my brain insist on putting 2 i's in Naiad?

    No, and no clue. I'm usually trying to get rid of pennies (well, with a couple of notable exceptions.) As to Naiiad vs. Naiad vs Niaid vs Naad vs.... some reasonable facsimile of it is all I need. As my grandfather puts it "Call me anything, just not late to dinner."

    What is the superstition of a penny? Is this a southern thing?

    IT could just be my family. When giving a knife, you put a penny in with the knife so as not to sever the friendship. The penny invokes Abe Lincoln and all his friendship stuff, supposedly. I dunno that it works or not, but if nothing else, it's always funny to see who knows about it and who doesn't.
    ETA: Ooooohhhh.... Wow, I had that backwards. If you give a knife, you sever the friendship, but if they give you a coin to "pay" for the blade, then it's not a gift. The penny is generally included with the knife as a gesture of goodwill, so that tey don't hafta actually pay for the gift. Apparently, most people just use whatever coin's handy. My family has always used pennies and invoked the Abe Lincoln friendship stuff.

    That's different. Hell, I just like to see who will fling a knife first. I'm a sadist like that.
