Yoda's thoughts at this time of year!
It would be difficult talking to the little green guy at this time of year. The rest of us probably talk to many more people than normal but he would spread confusion.
'Merry gentlemen God rest you they do'
' Last looked out King Wenceslas did'
and so on.
As a former family operative I know how difficult it is for the food technicians at this time of the year and so offer you this,
Pork, stuffing and apple sauce
All the trimmings as well of course
Over-faced with Christmas pudding
Afternoon snooze is in the offing
Friends and family round the table
Mum creates as she is able
All appreciate the festive feast
A meal fit to sate the hungriest beast
From rich to poor all will try
To feed the throng and none will fry
Traditional fayre is what’s required
A test for the culinary aspired
Whatever – no guest will complain
They will find good no matter how plain
When all is done and the work is over
The later day gives time to recover
Till next year!
