As for the OP question, they are legion. I'm quite fond, for instance, of gallimaufrey, spindleshanks, strillers, autochthonic, contumacious – and many more examples can be found by studying my past posts, something that should be a quotidian observance in all well-conducted households

Vittle is an obsolete alternative to the word victual, which is defined as food prepared to be eaten. A piece of chicken that has been grilled and is ready to eat is an example of a vittle

My favorite word in Japanese is tabihodai and it means all you can eat. Nomihodai is a good one as well. It means all you can drink. (Taberu = eat/ Nomu = drink)
I love you.

Can't we just say the chicken is ready? Or, grub's up?

Shibboleth

I like words like victuals as well - ones that are spelt differently to how they are pronounced. It is always amusing to see them spelt wrong or mispronounced. Quinoah is another one (although you always suspect people are being whimsical when saying quinn-ower).
