Baked Pretzel with Nutritional Yeast Sauce, Apple Crisp and White Bean/Carrot Stew

with 2 comments

 

The physiology of angels is such: the great majority of angels have one wing, and this wing is near their hearts. There is only one feather in this wing. Many angels have two-feathered wings. Each feather spins endlessly. Some angels have greater wings, of many feathers, farther and farther away from their hearts, and though no wing can have more than eight spinning feathers in it, an angel may have any number of wings.

Humans were made to contemplate the angels, and to move them about. When humans put the angels of pretzels together with the angels of Nutritional Yeast Sauce, it is then that even God laughs, and shakes his head and says “What a Thursday.”

Bagel, Rice w/Lentil and Kale Lunch

with 2 comments

There I sit on the couch
untangling their mysteries,
a dim iTouch photograph
my only guide

Already I can envision the plate
passing on the conveyor belt
beyond the curtains of memory
Can I recover nothing?

The locusts of doubt
are pillaging the ripe corn of thought!

I perceive no way
out –
Wait!
There is a bag of carrots on the table.
I eat a carrot.

Co-op Lunch (Tofu)

with one comment

“Like the origins of cheese and butter, the exact origin of tofu production may never be known or proven.” -Wikipedia

 

O Nameless Tofu Originator

you are more immortal than any of us are going to be.

Were you a prehistorical genius, experimenting rigorously over many years?

(different combinations of bean curd, salt, etcetera).

Or was it blind luck?

like the Chinese emperor who was boiling water outside, only to have a leaf fall in it

and invent tea. Perhaps I should stay home all day

mixing, stirring.

Soy-Sauce Rice and Broccoli In An Enormous Wok

with one comment

A list of events:
1. You were a dinosaur.

2. We picked your flesh off with spoons.

3. And sat by the campfire.

4. The wind was needles on the roof.

5. I scrubbed your hide with salt & vinegar.

Cinnamon Cookies w/Caramel Cookie Sauce

leave a comment »

Forward, ladies and gentlemen!
To a shining new future
of Cake Sauce, Donut Sauce,
perhaps the savories; Sandwich Sauce,
Fish Sauce (no, that’s a thing), Sausage Sauce,
Vegetables Sauce, Stew Sauce.

Ah, how man’s achievements climb,
each food perfectly matched to a liquid complement, until, one numinous day,
Cookie Sauce Sauce, ad infinitum.
