GLOBAL DINNER

HEALTH & HAPPINESS TO FRIENDS & FAMILY!

Christmas is a time of birth

New traditions from the Earth

Capsicum annum from Mexico

A green pepper named Poblano

Cicer arietinum from the Middle East

Garbanzo or chick pea, what a feast

Allium cepa from Bronze Age digs

Onions growing under dirt and twigs

Glycine max from China and Japan

Crumbly bean curd extends the life span

Solanum lycopersicum from the Southern Hemisphere

Tomatoes cooked make a saucier new year

Blending magical ingredients is so much fun

My Romani gulash in a stove-top cauldron!

SCORCH

 

You enfold me

In a scented taste of

Fire-roasted vegetables

 

Sweet as corn

Spicy as cayenne

Juicy as tomato

Pungent as garlic

 

Blanketed in a

Smoky aura of nut bark

 

Skewer you

Set you on fire

Melt on my tongue

Devour…
