An Ode to Lentil Soup




lentil soup

Oh, lentil soup, I applaud you

For keeping my family alive.

Cheap and delicious,

And smugly nutritious,

With protein, and three of the five.

But while I applaud your importance,

I have a confession to make.

You cause me to fart,

And deep in my heart,

I long for a fat, juicy steak!!

(Inspired by Claudette

Well, more of a bet!!)

  1. You should try Lentils made the Pakistani way. Delicious and an unending variety. Maybe some day I could make some for you..and don’t worry, steaks would follow suit


  2. Now I’m sulking, you stole my thing, you trumped me, you walloped me with a left hook, sulky I tell you, I’m sulky. (Well done, laughing even though I hate lentils.) 🙂
