my new skill of cooking
CRAMP, 091811 for 091911

New Prompt!
Due to a life change, you’ve decided to learn how to cook. What is the first meal you attempt to make, and how does it go?


Been “cooking” for a lot of years, at least I THOUGHT I was—
But once I moved in with inlaws, I knew my cooking had to change!
My lack of recipes caused many tears, group hunger was their cause--
I tried making new concoctions; the family decided they were too strange!

I finally found myself a simple dish, one I could eas’ly make!
Twas tuna helper—tuna fish!! Who knew, for goodness’ sake!

Now, I’m an EXPERT at that dish! I cook it ev’ry week!
And these poor Southern souls don’t know what hit them—they’re too meek
To let me know that they want grits and other standard Southern fare;
But helpers are the only things that I can cook—of that, I’m FULL AWARE!
