I Love Salt

Now don’t get me wrong – I love sweets. I love all kinds of sugary treats. I like cake; I like pie, and for chocolate I die. I’m hankering now for a malt! But nothing beats something with salt. Caramel corn can be nice. But I prefer salt or some spice. It would be a mistake if I did not shake a while before calling a halt (into buttery popcorn) my salt! I shake it all over spaghetti. I shake it as if it’s confetti! On french fries and steak and casseroles I make - for sure I will have to exalt my favorite dishes with salt!

Some really cute rhymes, I loved the spaghetti/confetti one and all the clever rhymes with salt! Anything made from potatoes taste great with salt, as well as meat. I love sprinkling salt over my eggs, sausage, bacon, and hash brown breakfasts. I always enjoy your food poem. Congrats on your win!

Per chance did you have anything to do with Mr. Buffet’s lost shaker? Fun piece.

As long as your blood pressure is good, it's fun to binge on popcorn or pretzels. Now, I don't confetti my spaghetti with it (cute rhyme), but I know it makes meat taste better. Best wishes for a win! Hugs, Carolyn

I wish I could quit salt cold turkey, but how it that even possible? It's hold on people is devilish I tell ya, devilish! LOL. Salt just makes food taste good, period. We'd go crazy without it! I sense a winner here, Andrea:-) Love it! I took the salt theme in a completely different direction. GL in the contest!

I often get scary results after I pump up the cuff of my sphygmomanometer. That's why my sodium chloride intake has to be quite limited. Nevertheless, this is one of your usual fine writes.

Gosh, I do, too, Andrea. But, it was throwing me into congestive heart failure, so I've had to cut back drastically. Still, I miss it. This is an excellent entry for the Salt Contest. Best of luck!

Now 'spaghetti and confetti,' those are two amazing rhymes. Better than Dr. Zeuss and Little Red Caboose! :) gw

Hi Andrea, I, too, like salt, I like sugar as well . Too much of anything isn't good—everything in moderation. Now I have a sudden urge for some buttery popcorn. I enjoyed the read. Best wishes in the contest. Have a great day and weekend:-) Alexis

fortunately I have good blood pressure, salt has never affected me and I rarely eat popcorn or spegetti though they are two of my favorite foods!! Baked potatoes with butter and salt, so yummy too.
