Julia’s Child


I tried

And fell short

To make dinner

Come out really good

Oh, there’s lots of flavor

Somewhat, a bit of texture

But I would not serve this to you

I will eat the seven pints myself

And try a different method next time ‘round

ranger danger

Well, who burnt the fish

Filling the kitchen with smoke

Uh, that would be me

Tried to figure out

If we could salvage our meal

Once the smoke had cleared

Not gonna happen

It’s cereal for supper

Seriously, really girl

Don’t burn the oatmeal

some yum

Did you lick beaters

When your mother made icing

For a birthday cake

Did you make shortbread

Baked with cinnamon sugar

Leftover pie dough

Put on an apron

Take a whiff of yesterday

Taste bud time machine

Tj’s Household Haiku Challenge Strange & Tears

When cutting onions

Tears are not such a strange thing

From pungent gas fumes

hot cuisine


Cook up the brown rice

Grab carrots, cabbage, tofu

Stir fry with hot sauce

Cut up some fresh limes

Chop peanuts small for garnish

And supper’s ready!
