A Very Sad Recipe!

Colleen Sowa


My mother had a friend, and this friend never followed my mother's ingredients list or directions.... then she would be upset that my mother gave her a bad recipe! LOL

This poem reminds me of the friend... and I chuckle everytime I read it!

I hope you enjoy this!

How to Make A Very Sad Recipe!


  1. I didn't have potaoes,
    So I substituted rice.

    I didn't have paprica,
    So I used another spice.

    I didn't have tomatoe sauce,
    So I used tomatoe paste.

    A whole can not a half can,
    I don't believe in waste.

    A friend gave me this recipe,
    She said you couldn't beat it.

    There must be something wrong with her,
    I couldn't even eat it!!!
