Man in Kitchen

Man in Kitchen

So this is it, this place I’ve never been
I wander in and find it’s kept pristine
So this is where she disappears
And later on the food appears

Ah well! I’ll have to do my best
I think I’ll try that chicken breast
All I have to do right now
Is figure out the where and how

Unsuccessful, heaven knows
Why these things come all froze
But of one thing now I’m sure
There’s nothing for me in that drawer

Boiled potatoes, that sounds nice
Maybe with a pan of rice
Doors are banging, pans are flying
She can’t say that I’m not trying, hah

How much rice should I whack in
Sod it, shove the whole pack in
In the pan the waters pouring
This cookery I’m am so exploring

Pans are bubbling, all seems well
I’m creating such sweet smell
Now I see the rice exploding
And potatoes are imploding

This is harder than I thought
An easy meal I tried to sort
All my efforts are now gloop
So think I’ll fill on poetrysoup

Later on that night she says
Lets move the earth in many ways
Sorry dear, tonight no quakes
I have one of your headaches

    The only thing I know how to make is fried noodles (insta-noodles mind you). That is so utterly simple to make, even a novice like me can make it. This was funny and shows deep respect for the things your loved ones do for you. It ain't always easy as pie (especially when pies require cooking... haha... couldn't resist).

    Hi Richard, I'd seen a possum today. LOL, and the only reason i tell's cause I was around my brothers, who said... Lets kill it and cook it... ha ha..Yes one for man in the kitchen... xox~ Linda

    If I have another Fave contest, please don't forget to enter this one. I don't think I am seeing it in my current contest.

    Okay, once upon a time. My fiance was hungry. I was lazy, therefore he had to learn how to cook if he wanted to eat food that was not TV dinners. LOL, so their I made a cook out of him..... :-) ok that was a joke. I have a restaurant. In my restaurant is where I showed my fiance how to cook. Now, he out cooked me. Guess what it was all part of the plan. muahhahaha (evil-grin) 5 years later he hasn't gotten a meal out of me unless it's fast food. LOL.... xox~ PD

    LOL, loving this one again.... sadly women should not be giving men headaches... and men should stay out of the kitchen... however I know plenty of men cooks around here.. or should I say I can turn any man into a cook.... he he he.... I dare you to ask how can I turn a man into a cook? :-) Linda
