This week for WTW, we wanted something that could look really obvious, but could could easily de-rail into a million different directions. It seems we definitely achieved our desired results. Check out the guesses down below...

JStew: To be honest, though the photo is not strange to me, it's from a few weeks ago, and I have pretty much spaced what it is, and like other folks, have been waiting until today to remember exactly what it is. I felt like it looked super obvious, but there was some sort of plot twist at the end, as though this were some sort of Alfred Hitchcock photo or something. Did you guess right?!

Cori: Originally, I took a picture of this because I was so proud of myself for not lighting it on fire and/or totally destroying dinner...because I have been known to do so. So I took the picture, and was admiring how creamy the topping looked...and was suddenly inspired! And that's how this week's What's This Wednesday clue came to be....

What was it? Well...
