The Hawk Kitchen 4:22pm

I have ready to bake

a pan-load of Polenta

made with twelve de-boned chicken thighs

sprinkled with olive oil & Parmesan cheese

Hunter took a picture of It

out of guilt:

He’s refusing to allow

any spontaneous dinner guests

even though I have asparagus

pan rolls (today’s date)

unopened wine

I wouldn’t hesitate

to ask My Spontaneous Dinner Guests

to bring Dessert
