My Honey Makes Sweet Salsa

My “Honey” Makes “Sweet” Salsa. My “Honey” has a green thumb Her lovely garden, how it grows. It seems she gets a good return From every “penny” that she sows. Each summer about this time Her tomatoes start to blush As they start to “pile up” She’s in her kitchen, in a rush. She got this wonderful recipe From a preacher’s wife we know Of course she’s “tweaked it”some That’s how “family” recipes grow. She’s got her “system” down To produce this wonderful stuff. To have a season pass me by Would make my life real tuff. She picks and peels tomatoes Plumb & red, now sliced & diced She grabs a lovely onion with Some peppers, nicely spiced. That’s as fine a recipe detail As I’m allowed to share. I keep her secret for myself Cause she just wouldn’t care. I want to feel this salsa Is “special” made and just for me. Cause it’s the very greatest Anyone’s salsa could ever be. So now I’ve shared my story It’s made me long to dip a few And if you lived a little closer I’d share a fresh scoop with you. Written by oldbuck Aug 8, 2015 After his “Honey” had just finished making a fresh batch of her salsa.

Brandy: If I could rhyme like my wife cooks, we'd be rich. As it is, I'm the rich one with her in our kitchen. Thanks for reading and commenting. oldbuck

Some recipes are meant to stay in the family, otherwise they lose their uniqueness:) Your wife's salsa sounds enticing...pity I live so far away!! All the best. // paul

Emile: I don't believe I received a notice of this comment all those years ago. It was fun to get one when I found it today. Thank you very much. Folks seldom comment on my rhyming. More often just like the story. :o) oldbuck
