Diary of a Foodie~


I must confess

as on Master Chef…

a delicious plate of food


does it for me.

I like to cook

and do my best

to serve up scrumptious

with a side of finesse.

I’m a pescetarian

who loves to dine;

I cook traditional

and I love my wine!

Sometimes though,

I lack the mood

to stand in the kitchen

cooking food;

In those times

I appreciate

the culinary skills of my mate.

My hubby is

a talented man

the things he creates

with his wok and pan!

He likes to cook

but would rather eat;

when he watches

Food Network

I’m surely in for a treat.

We dine in,

or out

Gastronomic pursuits

Is what it’s about.
