Should you cook brown rice, carrots, broccoli and chicken breast in a lemon and honey glaze for lunch,
And should your children be sick with ear infections, strep throats and a “big auwa in my toof”,
And should they be – for reasons known only to themselves – unable to eat the meal you have prepared for them,
And should this irritate you because the food is bloody delicious,
(You know because you ate it),
Yet you don’t want to eat it all yourself,
And you really, really don’t want to throw it away,
Then slice and dice and julienne it all down to within an inch of its former size,
Douse it with soya sauce,
Stir-fry it in sesame oil,
Serve it in a blue and white bowls with chopsticks,
And call it “Chinese Supper”.
There. That’s all I’m going to say about that.
