Magic Shelf

Every column / row provides ingredients for a dish.

Darcey goes to the supermarket, unsure of what to prepare for dinner. When she stumbles upon the magic shelf, she spontaneous decides to have an aubergine dish. She looks at the row in which the aubergines are stored: Besides the already mentioned fruit, there are tomatoes, mozzarella, parsley, olive oil and salt. Back at home, she prepares a fine salad.

Randall, who arrives a few minutes later, choses to eat something with tomatoes in it. While the "tomato row" contains only indegrients suitable for salad, he finds ground meat, onions, cheese and sunflower oil in the column - things that go well together in the frying pan.

For those who don't "get" it: The name was deliberately chosen to display the relation to the "magic square".
