Meal Prep and Marriage - Tobi Scofield

Meal Prep and Marriage - Tobi Scofield (Lincoln, Nebraska)

When I cook with my favorite person

we share a beer while we decide

who will be sous chef

Then, right away, things get hot

The garlic begins to sizzle

Adding onions makes it shizzle

and this aromatic marriage awakens our senses

Tossing in red, ripe romas

with a hint of fresh green spices

makes a sauce

worthy of topping naked pasta

Bumping elbows, stirring with care

A salty pinch here...

a peppery pinch there...

A patient simmer leads

to a natural hunger

Mmm...mmm...mmm,” I say with a wink

raising our glasses and hearing them clink

if only we were younger!”
