Day 2 Poem

Today’s was to do a poem in the style of a recipe I have sort of done that. Check out the prompt here: http://www.napowrimo.net/day-two-4/

 

I make toad in the hole from be-ro cookbook

My step-fahter learned how to make scones from

There are sausages in the fridge and

I am trying to give the kind of sense memory

That can only come from a meal you have eaten

Cooked and known your whole life

 

I wake Mother from her nap to ask what

A ‘’hot oven’’ means this cook book in

Black and white predates Celsius and gas marks

I set the oven and the ceramic dish with oil

To heat up while I make the batter

 

less trouble there an egg is always an egg

I worry over my toad that it will not rise

Will come out rubbery and thin

Set the timer set into the oven and wait

 

It comes out perfectly risen and golden

And he finds it delicious with onions and gravy
