Quandary Resolution 2069
mawk, consternation, corrode, hyaline
The cabbage from the kitchen garden was unfortunately much corroded by mawk blight or whitefly or some such, much to the consternation of the cook, who had been hoping for undamaged leaves for stuffed cabbage rolls and had, in fact, already gone to considerable trouble to remove the hyaline cartilage from the beef before grinding it, but now was forced to make something with leftover chicken and bell peppers instead.
