To all of the wonderful cooks that we are fortunate to have in our family.

I checked my recipes today;
Eight books upon the shelf,
Ten bulletins, a hundred cards,
Three scrapbooks filled myself.
A drawer packed with pages clipped;
A box behind the door
Is running over with the things that
I've not used before.

I'll try some now:
French Onion soup, Souffle' and Minted Peas, a nested salad,
Ginger Lime with parsley, nuts and cheese.
And for dessert, let's see---The Clock!!!
I thought with all my might,
Pushed recipes aside
And then--used what was left last night.
