Merry Queen of Squash

Pumpkin, merry queen of squash,
regnant on accord.
With a smooth and ribb-ed rind
clad in pepo-orange,
two strikes to sever
from the vine.
Gourd!





*Mary, Queen of Scots was beheaded by order of her cousin Queen Elizabeth of England in
1587.  Detailed accounts record it took two strikes of the axe to sever her head completely.  

**A pumpkin is truly the sovereign of gourd squashes. .  Ironically, the word 'gourd' is also a slang
term for 'head' giving this poem a most appropriate ending whichever way you look at it!.

***The word ribb-ed in the third line is read as two syllables.

From lips to hips

In Cognac
oh Cognac...

my sweet little town in France

Out I stepped 
for an evening stroll
on the cobbled streets

And there I did see,
the nights last light
in the patisserie flick out

And out she sprang
that little French sylph !

From head to shoe
her petite figure
was covered in batter

And to my surprise 
I did discover,
from lips to hips
she makes the best;

cheese cake ever !

Ice Cream Delight!

National Ice Cream Day    July 15th


Benjamin Franklin was the very one.
In the year of 1771.
While in France dessert did come.

What is this wonderful delight!?
"Ice cream dear sir,
I hope you like."

With quill and ink
And much insight.
He acquired the recipe that night.

And sent it back across the sea.
To share Ice Cram
With you and me!

Pork It's The Other White Meat {Epulaeryu}

curry-crumble pork chops
so mouthwatering
Just dare to be different folks
moistness lies in the
layers of yogurt
brushed over
pork!










Curry-Crumbed Pork Chops 


Panko are coarse bread crumbs usually found next to other bread crumbs in the 
supermarket. 

3/4 cup plain yogurt 
1 teaspoon dry mustard 
1/4 teaspoon salt 
1/4 teaspoon pepper 
3 tablespoons thinly sliced green onion 
2 bone-in center-cut rib pork chops (3/4 inch 
    thick) 
1 tablespoon canola oil 
1/3 cup panko 
1 teaspoon curry powder

1. Heat oven to 375°F. Combine yogurt, mustard, salt and pepper in small bowl. Reserve 
one-fourth of the yogurt mixture; stir green onion into remaining yogurt mixture. Brush 
reserved yogurt mixture onto both sides of pork chops. 

2. Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Cook pork 4 to 6 
minutes or until golden brown, turning once. Remove pork; place on foil-lined baking sheet. 

3. Combine panko and curry powder; stir into drippings in skillet. Spread over top of pork. 

4. Bake 8 to 12 minutes or until pork is pale pink in center. Serve with yogurt sauce.

Epulaeryu
The “Epulaeryu” poem is about delicious food. It consists of seven lines with thirty-three
(33) syllables. The first line has seven syllables, the second line five, the third line
seven, the fourth line five, the fifth line five, the sixth line three, and the seventh
line has only one syllable which ends with an exclamation mark. Each line has one thought
relating to the main course. Therefore, this new poetic form, the Epulaeryu, which has
corresponding lines built around the main course, and ending with an exclamation point,
concludes with the ending line expressing the writer’s excitement and feelings about the
poem. Created by Jospeh Spence. My humble efforts Joseph.
