This and that

DEFINITION

A vague reference to a multitude of disassociated things. Variety of items together. Imagine opening a kitchen pantry and grabbing ‘this’ ingredient and then taking ‘that’ one, it’s just unaccounted ingredients. (Compare to Hodge podge.)

“I asked what ingredients she has in her stew and she just said this and that.”
