Goodness, I forgot all about this thread!

Hmm...  study    scratch   

Some rotund creatures lie sluggish and dull,
But I am most spry when I am fat.
With expansive girth I frolic about,
leaping right over your hat.


Shrugging All I could think of in the moment!

scratch

...I've forgotten the answer to my own riddle!
A balloon perhaps?

Anyway:

Fruit of the earth, and fruit of the stalk,
mashed and mixed and rolled.
Shape of the iron, and heat of the flame,
A bed in the shape of the world.

Fruit of the beast, and fruit of the cane,
Spread with fine cutlery.
Coiled and roiled and popped in a mouth,
it sure tastes delicious to me.


Haha that was awful, oh well.

I can't believe Forrest forgot the answer to his own riddle. Rolling Eyes But balloon fits.

On the second one: Cinnamon Roll.

Nope, nope. Closest with waffle. "Apple of the earth" would be a nearer hint for the first line.

It's the "coiled" that's causing the problems.

Fruit of the earth, and fruit of the stalk, potatoes and flour
mashed and mixed and rolled. mixed together, rolled flat
Shape of the iron, and heat of the flame,
A bed in the shape of the world. fried on a flat griddle

Fruit of the beast, and fruit of the cane,
Spread with fine cutlery. Spread with butter and sugar
Coiled and roiled and popped in a mouth,
it sure tastes delicious to me. Rolled into a tube!

Never heard of 'em. Shrugging I don't think we have them on the East Coast and Wikipedia seems to imply as much too. Definitely makes sense with your clues, though!

...Missing out guys! My grandma had them around a lot when I visited. And we'd sometimes get them for a treat. I haven't seen them out here anywhere, but they do sell it in stores in Minnesota I know.

Lefse is yummy! Makes sense to find them mainly in Minnesota.

They definitely sound tasty, especially with the butter and sugar spread. Razz

I find that other spreadables on them are similarly satisfactory, jellies for example.

Look like flour tortillas to me. We would sometimes put butter and brown sugar on them. but the potato would likely soften them up.

Changes the flavour of course. And they are softer yes. It's quite comforting.
