Poem: When To Put The Garlic In? – 11/01/20

 Time for a meal of health tonight!
 I am overhauling the diet. 
 I have a guest, 
 he is nonplussed by my choices, 
 (he trusts me in the kitchen) 
 for I have proven my skills in many cooking processes.
 But, tonight, I am confused,
 who has stocked the real garlic area with a 
 squeezy tube of it as a crushed paste?
 My eyes narrow;
 this must be a trick!  
 for I am rather inept at knowing where in the 
 process to insert this ingredient.
 Slyly, I contact a sage friend,
 she’s a master in the kitchen,
 far more than I’ll ever be, 
 “When do I insert the crushed garlic into a stir fry?”
 She fails to reply. 
 I trust my intuition,
 I give it a try. 
 My chicken stir fry is a success,
 my guest is not left lacking,
 “That aroma, that sauce, that flavour,
 Exemplary! Unlike any other.”
