I always cook and bake in bare feet.
That way I cannot lose.
Stray egg yolks and flour will end up on me
Instead of all over my shoes.
(Arenít I brilliant?)
It would be stupid if I created my goodies.
Especially the ones with curvacious lumps
While prancing around in fish net hose
And a pair of bright lavendar pumps!
I have always believed that one should be
Extremely enthusiastic and loud.
The measure of whether success is achieved
Is by how thick the air, how dense the cloud
(Whole wheat flour is best)
I seldom cook with vegetables or fruit.
Show me the souvenir benefits of a carrot.
My motto has always been, and still is:
If itís good enough to eat, then itís good enough to wear it.
(And I do!)
When I cook or bake, and I do it quite often
Iím mindful of the great athletic opportunity.
When olive oil spills, and with me thatís a given
I donít weep, I skate with panache and impunity.
(Sometimes I play hockey!)
So you see, you must never wear shoes when you cook
At least not when itís my kitchen weíre in.
As a bonus (youíll love this), since so much is inedible,
It ends up unsightly, so youíll eat less and stay thin!
(Unless you order a pizza delivered!)
Today: Stroganoff Aspic (ick!)

|DiGiorno pizza with anchovies, coming right up. Ah . . . and . . . sigh . . . the visions of you slaving over a hot stove sans heels instead of wearing fishnets, short black skirt cut to the thigh and a red blouse with deep, revealing cleavage is despressing. Still, I would imagine that it would be fun to be able to pat your feet in the wheat flour dough, squishing it between your toes and wriggling them around and . . . oh gorsh, my ideas of what is sexy and whot ain't has just changed. The Barefoot Cooktessa!!! Cook on.|
