What is my favourite food?
How can I possibly decide
That’s like asking a favourite book
Or song or walk or child!

I suppose I must try
If forced to put it to the test
Something new I’ve made myself
That pleases me the best

Vegetarian food
Is a new world I have explored
We gave up meat only for Lent
And never have returned

I teach myself new ways
To explore, nourish and succeed
Tasting food afresh and anew
Even growing from seed

Watching herbs in a pot
That I have planted from a seed
The taste of satisfaction grows
From a leaf plucked at need
