The Book Of The Cook!

The cat watches humans at the other sea and they eat with such glee. Pat doesn't bother with that. So it was sure news to the cat. Look at all that cooking. It is worth a double booking.

Step 1 is easy,
Could even be cheesy.
You get out the pots and pans,
To cook for your fans.

Step 2 is grand.
Time for food land.
Get it all ready.
The cooking will come steady.

Step 3 is now here.
Don't run in fear.
Mix the two.
Pot and food in view.

Step 4 is tricky.
Could end up icky.
Set the timer and such.
Can't let it go too much.

Step 5 is simple.
Like popping a pimple.
Add in the extra stuff.
Make sure you have enough.

Step 6 is done.
Set the table and run.
Run to get the rest.
Shiny silverware is the best.

Step 7 is next up.
Put out everything without a hiccup.
Set it on the table all nice and neat.
Then it is time to eat.

Step 8 fill the plate.
That is an easy fate.
Get what you like,
Let food take a hike.

Step 9 scarf it all back.
Pray there is no heart attack.
15 mins or less to eat.
Hours cooking in the heat.

Step 10 has more.
Not done at your shore.
Now it is time to clean.
Need to keep everything serene.

Hmmm, the cat likes Pat's way better here. Then he has more time for my rhyming rear. How do you humans like all that cooking? Unless you are Gloria and cook for blog looking. All the mess and all the cleaning. No thank you to that screening. Do you like cooking for a mass? Screw that, says my little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

  3. I used to enjoy cooking until it became a daily, mandatory chore. Now I dread having to do it straight from work.

  5. Ha - Cooking can be a lot of work
    after a long day that is not a perk
    use a crock pot, simmer it all day
    that is much easier for me I say...

    Holiday cooking can be quite the chore
    as people come and visit your shore...
    you have to clean up before and after
    to that there is no laughter....

    It's winter align your printer....

  10. I do like to cook and cleaning up is a necessity if you want to cook again. Course you could eat frozen foods but they taste like cardboard to me.

  16. I am one of those who go to the freezer for that night's meal. But sometimes I actually plan a meal. Since our kids flew the nest, cooking is less interesting.

  18. My only complaint about this latest great rhyme,
    Is the reference to a pimple when you're discussing things that inclue thyme!
    Other than that,
    Continually clever that Pat and Cat,
    Cooking for others can be quite the chore,
    but the eating and conversation surely never bore.

  19. I look cooking every now and then, and I have to say I like it even better now that there's a dish-washer.

    But I don't think I'd try to run something like a food blog. Sounds like WAY too much work to generate content. :-D

  33. I can cook up a storm when I want to...but I don't like cooking....I find it a bore. I have to cook and feel better about it now but when f=growing up, I was expected to cook and did so for years starting when I was 12. My mom showed me the ropes. My dad was a meat and potatoes man and I had to cook for my dad and brother for lunch...every single day. Kill me! I can say, I love my crock pot and left overs:)
