Mommies usually know how to use ingredients
To create a meal so expedient
In the beginning, it’s sugar and spice
Later, others are introduced for splice
These are salt, vinegar, oil, and alcohol
You need to acquire a taste for them
If you’re in it for the long haul
So let me ‘splain you each one’s call…
Salt is applied when she gets mad
Swearing as a salty sailor, but it’s a fad
Vinegar are twisted phrases to make you pucker
If you believe those, you’re a sucker!
Oil is the lubricant to soothe you quick
But that cod liver stuff – too much makes you sick!
Alcohol is used as a sleep aid and retreat
She uses it sparingly to help her sleep
What’s really amazing, though, is they don’t need a book
Mommies do it naturally…they COOK!
Sure, they can marinade a tad bit too long
But they want to be certain…they too belong
So savor the flavor and never forget
How dinner was ready and the timer is set
