Q: Name an event at which food is served (eight letters). Inside this word is the name of a food in four letters. Remove these four letters, and the remaining four letters, in order, will name another food. What words are these?I'm not sure if I have the intended answer or not. The foods seemed to be right there in the answer without having to look "inside" too hard.
Edit: I'm still not sure if this is the intended answer or not, so we'll see on Sunday. The clue to my answer was in the title "close to realtime" which should have made you think of...
A: MEALTIME --> MEAT + LIME
Edit: Indeed my answer was not the intended answer. 'L' from the comments notes that the intended answer is probably:
A: CLAMBAKE --> LAMB + CAKE
