For the Tale Weaver Challenge for December 24, Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie requested that because it is Christmas Eve, respondents write about a gift you received or gave, or about being gifted in some way. I chose the cookbook we received for Christmas. I love the giver, but these are some of the most complicated meals I ever seen!
I am the worst of bad cooks,
Truly challenged to even boil water.
Yet, my friemds insist on gifting
Me with cookbooks every quarter
I find the pictures beautiful,
And I appreciate the sentiment.
But, every time I try a fancy recipe,
The meals I chose aren’t evident.
The problem is that I am accustomed
To thawing my food or getting it to go.
So, giving me cookbooks that I can’t use
Is a waste of your hard-earned dough.
