Art and Humor: Simple Dinner Delayed


Thai Kitchen rice noodles soaking in a bowl on the counter,

and a bag of mixed kale and broccoli beside it,

I glance up at my husband and laugh,

“I have no idea what I’m making for dinner,”

Rolling my eyes and continuing,

“Because that’s the way the best meals start!”


Slowly draining the noodles, adding the broth, the vegetables,

the chicken, the ginger, the special blend of pepper,

I peruse the counter, examine the ingredients,

and finally acknowledge the dish that’s before me:

I’ve taken nearly an hour to make

glorified, 3-minute Top Ramen
