Daddy Cooks a Tasty Fish

Daddy went out to do some fishing,
And he caught himself a pike.
He put it in a basket,
And brought it home upon his bike.
He threw it in a frying pan,
With a little pad of butter.
Dusted it with salt and pepper,
And we had it for our supper.
Daddy said he couldn't cook,
And yet the pike was rather tasty.
When dear mother cooks the fish,
It turns out rather pasty.

    My husband says he can't cook so I never let him near the stove. Hee, Hee. I do all the cooking in our house. Some men are really good cooks.

    This was so fun, and makes me think of my father-in-law who would bring home the fish, and my mother-in-law, who cooked it and tried to make it taste worthy!
