Favorite Quote:
Cogito ergo doleo - I think therefore I am depressed

Man, mealtime is my favorite time of day
'Cause I cook in a special kinda way!
Temperature, texture, time and taste
Makes all the difference in tomato paste.
Paprika, pepper and parsley rock too,
Just mash them up and stick 'em in a stew.
If you're on a diet, I can fix that,
I'll bake some chicken and cut off the fat.
Trout and salmon are fine filleted,
Just fry 'em in a pan with cooking spray.
If you want salad, it's my specialty,
'Cause my ranch dressing's fit for royalty.
If you want food that's crisp and new,
Then my BLTs are perfect for you!
Wanna beat my dessert? Don't even try;
'Cause nothing's better than my homemade pie!
If you don't want cooking that comes out of a box,
Come to my kitchen 'cause my food rocks!

The author's comments:
I enjoy playing with sound and I love food, so this poem was rather fun to write.

Favorite Quote:
I am a princess, all girls are. Even if they live in tiny old attics. Even if they dress in rags, even if they aren't pretty or smart or young. They're still princesses, all of us." -Frances Hodgeson Burnett, A Little Princess
Live in the present, remember the past and fear not the future, for it doesn't exist and never shall. There is only now." _Christopher Paolini, Eldest

It is really cool and happy and light; quite a difference from some of the other poems on here. Really well written and happy. I like it.
