Saturdy Centus/ Heat in the Kitchen
Today I overslept and then awoke to rain, cold, and a funeral. I opened up Centus and groaned when I saw I am not a chicken was the prompt--it had to be used in rhyme! I couldn't face this on such a dark day, but I rallied and gave it a try anyway. Leave it to Miss Jenny to perk up the darkest of days!
If you want the complete rules for entering the Centus fun, go to Jenny's blog at http://jennymatlock.blogspot.com/2011/03/saturday-centus-im-not-chicken.html for details. Below is my own effort, weak at best, but at least I managed something today! Prompt is highlighted.
Heat in the Kitchen
Truly, I am not a chicken
When I am in the kitchen.
I use a cheese that is bleu
Or bravely dash in some wine too.
I will swirl in some basil or thyme
To any old recipe of mine.
Onions and garlic I’ll dice
For use in soups, casseroles, and rice.
I pause when reaching for red pepper
To make a hot and chili flavored supper,
Because hubby simply doesn’t savor
Zest and zing of such fiery flavors.
Then I go ahead… sprinkle in sizzling spice
Once in a while this chick tires of eating nice.
So I brave up to hubby’s bitchin’;
This chick takes charge of tastes in her kitchen!
