Just a Sample!

Happy Monday!  I had some friends over for dinner a couple of weeks ago and a word came up in conversation that I had never heard before.  So, here you go . . .  I could not let this opportunity escape without utilizing this fabulous word.  Prior to serving any cheesecake, and before applying any finishing garnish, I cut the cheesecake into aliquot parts.

aliquot

al-i-kwuh t \, adjective;

1. 
Mathematics. forming an exact proper divisor: An aliquot part of 15 is 5.
2. Chemistry, Pharmacology. comprising a known fraction of a whole and constituting a sample: an aliquot quantity of acid for analysis.
noun;
