What the Monkeys are Really Saying

img_2794
OH MY GOD!  I CANT LOOK!  Gah, gag, BARF!

Judgemental little shits.

They sit on a shelf above my stove and one day just relayed these statements to me by mental telepathy, which is pretty amazing when you think about it, with me being the only one of us to have a functioning brain, as far as I know.

Meal prep was very challenging when my sister and her family were here.  They were a mix of vegan, gluten-free, no dairy, limited grains, no grain-fed meat and restricted sugar.  My sister shared all kinds of great recipes and ideas and now I’m making my own salad dressings and using honey and maple syrup instead of refined sugar.  I know it’s still sugar, but you can seriously cut the amount.

Then the next weekend when my family came for Thanksgiving it was just a breeze making stuff that everyone could safely consume.  Even though I cooked it.

Honestly, I do concoct edible things.  I don’t know why W and the monkeys are trying to mess with my culinary self-esteem. He is now very wary about what I’m up to in the kitchen and avoids as if it’s poisoned anything containing…..

1. Zucchini or other unidentifiable green things

2.  Gluten free flour or any of those expensive nut flours

3.  Nut butters which are not peanut

4. Vegetables which appear suspiciously turnip-like and often actually are turnips even though I suggest they might be parsnips, which doesn’t really help.

5.  Healthy alternatives.  He would prefer the unhealthy version, thank you very much.

Well all this is making me hungry for honey nut cheerios.  With skim milk, because that makes it perfectly okay.  Right monkeys?

I have something to say to you guys.  Please keep your opinion to yourself.  Turn around if you can’t look.  Don’t eat if it’s going to make you barf.  And leave me alone or I’m moving you all to the basement.

Breakfast Blues

honey on toast

Mesmerized

by the slow flowing honey

he fashions one golden loop

on buttered toast.

Its impotence makes him weep.

His eyes close.

The wand slips from his fingers

and topples to the floor.

True loves honey hair,

Blythe and breezy, light and lively,

Sapid, debonair.

Banana, lemon, mustard, cheese,

Butter, quince and maize,

Sizzling sunshine, dazzling saffron,

Goldenrod ablaze.

Animated, spirited,

Brazen and upbeat,

Yet dulcet, smooth and soothing,

Sanguine, warm and sweet.

Daffodils and marigolds,

Yellow daffodils

Dandelions bold,

Paper tigers eye and jonquil,

Sunglow harvest gold.

A chicken hearted scaredy cat,

School bus, submarine,

Ribbons, brick road, taxi cab,

Knife and ictirine.

Jaundice, peridot, ripe melon,

Fever, squash, canary.

Babouche, mikado, zircon, zinc,

Aureolin fairy.

Sunflowers, jackets, straw and ming,

Yellow mellows everything.
