Tricolour Mac ‘N’ Cheese

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


Thanks for reading my friends. As always there’s to be enjoyed (I hope) in the Poetry CornerShort Stories and Short Stories 2 tabs.

Have a great day!

  1. It’s always a shame when the chef doesn’t even get to eat their own delicious concoctions. A lovely cooking poem, Mason! Well done!… or is it Rare? 😎 #CookingPuns
