We’re not sure how slop on TikTok started, but it gained
popularity recently when a group of friends began documenting their regular
dinner parties. To pick the theme, the women put topics in a bowl and pick out
strips of paper with ideas on them. The first things picked are what the theme

The idea of slop might sound gross, but it's an ironic joke to describe the falling-off-the-spoon oozy food we love so much. Slop is a whole vibe when you want something cozy.

8. Mushrooms Over Polenta
The best slop won’t make you stand in the kitchen, because during
slop season, we’re tired. We want to wrap ourselves in a blanket and nap. For this recipe, roast mushrooms and place on top of creamy polenta
for slop that feels like a warm hug.
