Parents – you all know the feeling when your children sometimes just make you crazy when nagging while waiting for dinner and playing with their utensils as they were drumsticks. Luckily, Croatian housewives from the past century had a great and quick recipe for those situations – the invisible dish!
½ nothing,½ less than nothing
A dish extremely popular in late XIX century and XX century, especially around Zagreb and in northwest Croatia. The women in charge of the household would answer in this way to impatient children inquiring for dinner. These ingredients come always in equal amounts – season according to personal taste and imagination.
This play of words became a domesticated phrase, and thus is mentioned in the line of authentic Croatian dishes.
