Of all the veggies tried, to date,
Only one of them, truly I hate
That blasted green pea
Gets the best of me
Scooting all over the plate!
I once met a Limburger cheese
That always made me sneeze
I’d catch the debris
Inside my coat sleeve
Who said being top chef was a breeze?
The english love to eat pie,
Stuffed with everything under the sky,
But I get alarmed,
When the contents are farmed,
From far away places, but why?
Soup is a very tricky thing
To make it, I usually fling
A touch of this
And a little of that
Ingredients to make the pot sing!
Walnuts, peanuts, set out in a bowl
Winged or furry creature? Poised to show
One crawls up and one flies down
But both want a taste of the suet crown
English idiom: “From soup to nuts” meaning from the beginning to end…This expression with its analogy to the first and last courses of a meal, appeared in slight different forms (such as from potage to cheese) from the 1500’s on. The precise wording here dates only from the mid-1900’s.
