I had yellow sautéed squash for lunch today.
No one else in my house likes it anyway.
So I fix it for myself when I am alone, with onions, ooh.
Today I threw in a few carrot and radish slices too,
and some garlic that was getting dry.
I cooked it in a drop or two of olive oil and a pat of margarine, oh my!
Carmelization occurred. My meal was taking shape deliciously.
The smell was so enticing that my pug was dancing all around me,
begging, being very bad. She knows better, my little gourmet troll.
I tumbled my root and gourdish mixture into a yellow bowl
And saw a gorgeous fall like offering inviting me to dip.
The promising aroma, colors, textures and taste were no gyp.
Satisfied, I sat down to share the experience of my treat.
I did not even think till now that I had not had any meat!
