'Twas The Night of Book Club

'Twas The Night of Book Club
'Twas the night of book club
And Dickie was now ready
For girls popping open the door
And hitting the hardwood floor.
Take your pick.
French wine or French water.
Take a little moment.
Smell the fresh flowers.
A touch of spring in the dead of December.
Hubby Scott is so clever.
All aboard the Polar Express
To watch Dickie fix us supper.
We know we will be blessed
With scrumptious food no less.

We have good intentions to watch our diet
But we need something more for stomachs to quiet.

We all run to the range in gallops.
To check out the fresh shrimp and scallops.
Dickie is now sauteing garlic and ginger.
I know this dish will be a winner!
Haelie keep talking
While Dickie keeps wokking!
Stirring stirring stirring
Those black beans are really whirling.

Carol takes note
As Dickie plays host.
We all are thrilled.
This will be quite a meal.

But as we await the exotic Caribbean seafood.
We spot something else equally good.
Holy smokes!
Two Wegmans chocolate desserts.
Those decadent little flirts!
Here's the choice:
Pistachio creme
Or the chocolate bombe!
Naturally I took a little scoop of each glomb.

Part 3 of 'Twas the Night of Book Club on Monday.

Joan: I had to!!!
Quite a beautiful table
and really looking scrumptious.
I would like to join in
for your book club lunches.

There's a red glass bowl sitting on the kitchen island that truly caught my eye. Beautiful.

Hope you all had fun.
