Day 214 – I Will Cater To You

Leave a comment

On the menu for tonight:
I will prepare for you
Some succulent chicken,
Slowly cooked in a delicate balance of:
Soy sauce, rice vinegar, pepper and bay leaves.
And please, won’t you wait to hear the rest?
Steamed rice bubbles to perfection.
Some coconut and soup base
Boiled with slices of:
Garlic, onion, and ginger root.
Similarly chopped acorn squash,
Diced tomatoes,
Crisp green beans.
All on simmer for more than an hour.
Some stir fried, teriyaki-tasting
Broccoli, carrots, mushrooms, onion, beans, snap peas.
And I’ve got some Thai curried chicken and sweet potatoes too.
What more, how about some wine.
Red and white,
Thank you for bringing a bottle.
And another.
Trust me when I say,
I love to take care of you.
