A Sense of Place, A Sense of Home
My 365 Project (details of the project are on Sept 23 post)

17. The Season is Almost Over

the season is almost over
here in california
so start melting the butter
then begin sautéing the onions and garlic
making sure the onions are tender
then add a little flour
remembering to constantly keep whisking and whisking
start adding in the chicken stock
keep whisking and whisking
as your mixture starts thickening
keep stirring and stirring
now you ready for the good part
hear comes the artichoke hearts, then the spinach
then the parmesan cheese, yogurt and cayenne
then pause for just a moment ...
... give thanks to the god zeus, for some say,
he created the delicious artichoke
created it out of his fickle mortal lover, cynara
lets also give thanks to the queen of the artichoke
this we know to be true ... ms. marilyn monroe ...
for her abundance, deliciousness
and for representing such a great vegetable
we “mortals” really appreciated this 
and a good parade too
season with salt and pepper ... then serve
