Sorted by recipe name
rather than food type
the plethora beginning
Grandmom’s would
catch every eye.
Followed by “homemade light bread,”
“brown sugar cookies,”
“prune cake,”
“boiled custard” and
“pickles” stand, flavoring the pages
of the family cookbook I compiled.
I am the image of Grandmom,
and adopted her name for
grandsons to use.
After turning eighty
Grandmom responded to Dr. Brook’s
suggestion she lose weight
by poking his stomach,
“I will when you do!”
My grandsons will know
Grandmom cookies,
but to stop doctors’
observation of the feasting’s results
I’ll affirm I eat compulsively
and enjoy the cookies through the boys.
