Ninety eight words

for Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt where the given word is Requisite and the limit, 98 words.




With the requisite ingredients laid out before me, I am about to set forth on a culinary tour de force.

After folding this into that I add a driblet of heavenly nectar and fondly caress it with my spoon.

Inhale the aroma. Never before will you have experienced anything as fragrant, sensual even.

Please, sample my creation thus far – not with your finger, use a teaspoon, you dirty devil! 

I beseech you, turn away as I add a sublime element known only to a chosen few.

Voila! My work is done. Now to enjoy.

My goodness, it’s … disgusting!

    Written with such a delicious pen, I cannot help be find my appetite quashed by that sublime ingredient which, to be honest, worries me 😉

        Persillade is not a bad thing… Unless it does not fit!

    We had to make a kale salad in a culinary class and my team and I told the instructor that nothing we could do would make it taste good. And boy did we try! To each his own, I guess.

    My mouth was watering, Keith, right up until… It wasn’t! Nice take.

    Dear Keith,

    Cooking can be such a balancing act. A bit too much or too little of something and the dish is ruined. Love your writing as always and your graphic. 😀
