You kids today are lucky, getting lemons.
When I was little, we had to climb the tree and knock them down ourselves,
collected them in a hand-woven macrame basket.
bring them home, look in the cookbook,
whip whites into mountains of meringue,
grate coconut for great results,
sift flour, sprinkle sugar,
get out your grandmother’s mixing bowl,
add hot water,
or cubes, crystal ice,
get out your zester,
learn to like the color yellow,
mix with olive oil and splash on salad,
mix with white wine and drowned the mussels,
by all means be creative,
get busy in the kitchen, and
remember, a good chef doesnt have time to complain!
