It’s “Gourmet Cooking Night!” Hooray!
My family’s favorite treat.
When I help Mom and Dad come up
With something new to eat.
They start out plain and simple,
With a chicken or a roast,
But then they leave the room,
And that’s when I help out the most!
I open up the fridge and grab
Whatever’s most expedient,
Then close my eyes and throw it in—
The mystery ingredient!
One time we had a turkey
Stuffed with oatmeal cookie-dough,
And once we had some burgers
Topped with pudding over-flow.
Our sweet-potato casserole
Had week-old breaded snapper,
And nothing beats spaghetti
With an empty butter wrapper!
Tonight’s surprise appears to be,
As far as I can make out,
Lasagna filled with ice cream
Topped with last night’s Chinese take-out.
Oh Mom and Dad are always proud!
They take just one big bite,
Then take me out for pizza!
Yay for “Gourmet Cooking Night!”
