E is for eggplant,as parmegan delights.
F is for fritters,deep fried apple bites.
G is for gazpacho,chilled soup from Spain.
H is for honey,so good for throat pain.
I is for Indian foods like spicy curry.

K is for kiwi from the land of the sleeping dragon.
L is for lemon to keep digestive juices from lagging.

Q is for Quiche,an egg dish so mellow.
R is for raspberries,often used in jello.

Versatility and imagination go a long way.

for Cyndi's ABC couplet contest


I just happen to love all these ingredients and have at some or other used or eaten almost all of them! I have a talent for fashioning a grand meal out of only a couple of ingredients...I am a good cook...my boyfriend says I am trying to fatten him up!(nobody ever told him to take seconds and thirds!!)
