A few of my favorite things…

in Chew on This

The_hills_are_aliveRice things and lentils and most foods with spices,
Bread from the oven and I-talian ices,
Figs wrapped in Spanish sliced ham make me sing,
These are a few of my favorite things!

Three Bauer bowls that I got in my ’20s,
Barbara’s old spooner and forks stacked a’plenty.
Rectangular dishes that hide all my rings,
These are a few of my favorite things!

Two brown-haired children who want only candy,
Friends, Brits and strangers who think it’s all dandy,
This handsome Flamenco who eats every-thing,
These are a few of my favorite things!

When the glass breaks,
When the soup burns,
When I’m feeling sad,
I simply remember my favorite things,
And then I don’t feel so bad!

With grave apologies to Rodgers and Hammerstein.
