Vanilla, adj.:
	Ordinary flavor, standard.  See FLAVOR.  When used of food,
	very often does not mean that the food is flavored with vanilla
	extract!  For example, "vanilla-flavored won ton soup" (or simply
	"vanilla won ton soup") means ordinary won ton soup, as opposed to hot
	and sour won ton soup.
