Cheer up

Home, considerate of the current situation,
Thinking about some evil Picasso cubism faces,
He might have been a visionary,
And seen the present scare,
Of people in the stores?

But we’re not in Syria, we don’t really know what it’s like….
I think there will be TP,
There will be food…..
I’ve been watching the cooking channel,
I saw an ad for the “worst cook in the USA”
I am wondering how do they make their selection,
And why haven’t they called me?

My young son is head-over-heels on Bobby Flay,
He thinks his food looks so good!
I used to live up to the expectations through a lot of takeouts, 
But now I seriously have to improve my cooking skills!

Maybe if they organize an on-line cooking boot camp
I will better understand my culinary transgressions.
Last night I tried to make cheesecake in a blender,
I failed…
Then wondered..
‘How the heck did that happen?’”
I could operate an airplane
But I get into all kinds of shenanigans in my kitchen….

Today is another day,
Since all the fruits from Whole Foods were gone,
I am going to make some pasta.
I heard that breaking pasta in half is bad 
And that every time you do it an angel cries sadly,
So I wont break it, I’ll listen to the Italian nonnas. 

After I’m done I’m going to switch my chef hat 
To the homeschooling hat,
Today’s schedule, among other classes, includes….
Honors Vacuuming and AP laundry. 

To all o you out there…..
Enjoy your day
Have fun with new projects,
Or do the same old,
And stay healthy!

  1. Statul acasa ne ofera timp pentru noi si pentru o multime de activitati de care ne plangem de obicei ca nu avem timp. Asa ca hai sa ne bucuram de creativitate, de liniste si de noi insine. O zi frumoasa si multe bucurii!

  2. I never gave thought as to why my Nonna never broke the spaghetti, she just gracefully made her own, and stemmed it into the pot, My Mother the same. They spoke Italian to one another, back then I didn’t understand the language. Maybe they knew of what you have written? Take care Andrada! Enjoying your posts! ❤️
