This poem was written in answer to the Your Daily Word Prompt : Entire
It also encompasses the Ragtag Saturday Daily Prompt : Tricolour
Here’s what I came up with ….
Tricolour Mac ‘N’ Cheese
I walked into my sunny kitchen and choose a knife
“What do you want for dinner?” I yell scaring the wife
“Surprise me. You make everything nice”
Decisions – potatoes, pasta, couscous or rice
Deciding upon Macaroni and cheese
I turned the oven up to two-hundred degrees
Butter, garlic, mustard and flour enter a pan
I’m making a roux for sauce, at least that’s the plan
As the water boils for my delicious pasta
I add milk to my sauce and give it stir
When the sauce is creamy, I start the clock
Next, I grate entire tricolour cheddar block
The pasta begins to boil for a minute or three
Half the cheese melts into the sauce, hmm tasty!
Add a little parsley, oregano and the sauce is done
Drain the pasta. It and the sauce become one.
I top it with the remaining tricolour cheese
And then dish goes in the oven please
I take slices of my favourite crusty bread
And top them with a buttery garlic spread
When both are baked gold brown
It’s time to serve the best dish in town
The family always eats every last crumb
Sometimes the chef doesn’t even get some
Have a great day!
