AS I LIKE IT!

Oct 26, 2016

Quote of Week

“I didn’t say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.”

 

MORE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS

(This is the last one, I promise)

 shrimp-and-grits

French fries and hash browns and hot baked potatoes,

Onions sliced thin with vine ripened tomatoes,

Peppers and pickles that make your mouth zing,

These are a few of my favorite things.

 

Fresh Shrimp and crawfish and oysters on half shells,

Warm fires and kitchens aglow with their good smells.

Fried chicken frying with drumsticks and wings,

These are a few of my favorite things.

 

When the milk sours, when the cake falls,

When the cook gets mad,

I simply remember my favorite things,

And then I don’t feel so bad.

 

Caviar and foie gras that tug on the wallet,

Hot bread with butter that sure tempt the pallet.

Porterhouse steaks all aflame on the grill,

Some things of which I cannot get my fill.

 

When the belt strains, when the weight gains,

When the pounds add up,

I simply increase one more notch on my belt,

And hope that they’ll quickly melt.
