Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

Sharing an Easter recipe with someone who cannot visit.
Because you cannot be with me,
I share with you a recipe.
Today I send an Easter wish
along with this Italian dish.

The dish is Gnocchi*—dough-balls they;
I hope they send hunger away.
As chewy pasta, spoon-size small;
a bite of food shaped like a ball.

Beyond the Gnocchi nucleus,
there’s Prego pasta sauce no less.
And sausage, meatballs…either-or;
don’t be surprised if you hear, More!

A salad remains essential;
perhaps a pepper, hot or bell.
Black olives and garbanzo bean;
if no black olives, then use green.

A recipe for pleasure sake;
(may it not keep thee wide awake.)
The plan to keep you glad and fed
is Gnocchi with Italian bread.
