This week on the 100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups, held over at Julia’s Place – there is going to be 25+ Christmas Dinners to scoff as she has asked us all to base the theme of the challenge on cooking Christmas Dinner to the tune of a Christmas carol.
I used the tune of my favourite Christmas Carol – The Christmas Song (Chestnuts roasting on an open fire …) but failed miserably to cut the 4 verses down enough to make 100 words – there are 103!
I don’t mind and will accept the flack as it was fun trying and no matter how many ask me to chnge this and that – I’m not budging! It’s my work (warts and all) 😮
And so, here it is …
Potatoes roasting or are they on fire
Kitty cats nipping at my toes
Karoke being sung by the kids
I’m cooking in my panty-hoes
Everybody knows the Christmas lights
Help the hallway shine so bright
Grandad running to the loo in a rush
I hope he makes it there alright
The Christmas Dinner’s on it’s way
I shout from the kitchen as they pray
Everybody is going to cry
When they see that the turkey has burned dry
My offering this year deserves simple praise
We’re having our feast on Christmas Eve
Down t’ Railway, Dinner for five
This year – a guaranteed relief
For the record – I can cook! We are however, having our Christmas Dinner on Christmas Eve as we are a typically modern family with 3 sets of parents (both HD and I have been married before) and so to be a fair Mummy, I alternate Christmas Dinner each year.
We are also going out for our dinner this year as Mummy has decided given that we will only have until lunch on Christmas Day with 2 of the kids – that time is precious and I’m not spending very much of it in the kitchen.
So my inspiration was very real and fun to play with.
Hope you enjoyed this and will take a look at all of the other entries in #100WCGU Week 23.
Merry Blooming Christmas 😮
