A Cook's Bounty

A is for anchovies,salty little fishes. B is for blueberries in muffins and sweet dishes. C is for cabbage,so good for making slaw. D is for dragonfruit,you can eat it raw. 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. J is for jello,simple desserts in a hurry. K is for kiwi from the land of the sleeping dragon. L is for lemon to keep digestive juices from lagging. M is for mushrooms,shitake and morels. N is for noodles such as macaroni shells. O is for onions,yellow and sweet white. P is for peppers,an Italian delight. Q is for Quiche,an egg dish so mellow. R is for raspberries,often used in jello. S is for shrimp,darlings of the sea. T is for tomato, a fruit it would be. U is for Uglifruit,sweeter than it's name. V is for vinegar,pungent not tame. W is for waffles,a breakfast treat. X is for xouba sardines found near Crete. Y is for yogurt, it's all Greek to me. Z is for zucchini that will make rattatouille. Versatility and imagination go a long way. But the right ingredients keep hunger at bay. 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 boyfriend says I am trying to fatten him up!(nobody ever told him to take seconds and thirds!!)
