Kitchen Haiku: Call Me Hot Chilli Capsicum…
“Once you get a spice in your home, you have it forever. Women never throw out spices. The Egyptians were buried with their spices. I know which one I’m taking with me when I go.” Erma Bombeck
Where’s my darling Spice? Call me… My favorite kitchen spice is chilli pepper of the capsicum family. I love the whole range of hot, sweet, mild peppers, but the hot chilli holds my heart. Yes, I’m one of those people who travel with a personal stash. What about you? What kitchen ingredient is always by your side?.
“I often quote myself. It adds spice to my conversation.” George Bernard Shaw
So we take a spice we love and write a funny ode or haiku in praise of it… I do hope you see the humor in my extravagant pronouncements for the chilli capsicum spice. If not, Call Me.
