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.”
