Weekly Prompts Wednesday Challenge – Burnt Offerings

Sue W and GC are the hosts of Weekly Prompts

This week Susan and I invite you to share your own embarrassing tales of woe doing your duty in the kitchen. We all have been there and it’s fun to share these misadventures with others.

As always our challenge is flexible,  feel free to do it your way. Words, Pictures, Poetry or Rhyme.

She placed her creation on the table with trepidation

Expecting rebuke for the burnt offering she presented

Instead she was praised with a kind and gentle smile

And praised for the effort she had put in creating the dish

“This is a wonderful effort”, she was told

“Don’t worry we all make mistakes the first time

Next time it’ll be even better because you will be more careful

But as it is, it tastes just lovely, burnt and all!”

The generous praise from her mom made her spirit soar

And she was never afraid to share her efforts in the kitchen again!

  1. I will never forget a night at my in-laws for dinner. My MIL had been cooking for a long time, wouldn’t accept any help and we sat down to a beautiful dinner when the first words out of her husbands mouth were not, “it looks delicious” but “where is the gravy”. She hadn’t made any but had a full spread anyway and that was his complaint before he even ate anything. She started crying and I will never forget how cold he was at that moment. Great positive story Sadje!
