Hidden Recipes

I live my life with a woman who likes to collect recipes That all sound very delicious as she reads them to me Some are to be once seen,but then never to be made So I feel they should remain on the pages they once stayed Some are collected then placed neatly in a book Others are thrown into a drawer maybe for a future look But that future day never comes when they will be made Though in that big drawer and cabniet is where they all stay She has collected many magazines and printed out many from on line It would sure be nice to taste some of them she has collected over time As they were placed in that cabinet and drawer only never to be made Most of them hidden from my taste buds where those recipes have stayed

    lol....this is an entertaining poem Dan. Can't say I collect recipes to store in a drawer...I just make them and toss them if no good hehe. But maybe your wife would love to make them, but maybe they are the kind that one cannot over indulge...........hehe. Hnce a special occasion. Hugs - Shaz

    They can come in handy once ...... one day she might have use for a very special recipe ....... - They are also nice to look at ....... but they do not smell anything particularly well. - Maybe you should try a recipe, cook something special for her. - Have a nice weekend. - oxox f.e.f. / / Anne-Lise :)
