Taking Both Sides


My craving for breakfast food's often confused and eclectiC
Until I am grasped by the impulse for baking with guilE.
For I have been known to just waver in every which manneR,
Found scratching my head in the baked-goods-and-cereal aislE.
I've found a solution to settle this awkward dilemmA--
Now, cereal muffins -- the product of error and triaL!

Rain Bake

 In Southern California, rain is rare.
So rare, in fact, that if it ever pours,
Los Angelans will panic and declare
That it's not safe to drive or go outdoors.

But, trapped inside, I find a new delight--
The kitchen counters gloominess outside.
The oven warms; rich spices do invite
Attempts at recipes I've not yet tried.

Fresh baking smells might lead you to deduce
I'm prepping for some kind of holiday.
The truth?  A cake is simply my excuse
To make your stormy day a bit less gray.

By bringing friends together, food's endowed,
With silver lining, every dark rain cloud.
