True bliss happens in a moment of time
Frames or scenes we can never forget
A taste, a touch, or a fragrance
Sought and found, but never bound
How deep must we all delve
How high must we climb
To find the joys
Wielder of my heart
On a day when bliss is close
Be my Valentine
A meal for two
Glazed in sultry romance
Tender with a subtle surprise
On this day;
Something rich but cultured
Fun but thoughtful
Flexible yet neat
“Honey glazed lamb and sweet potato chips”
Soaked for half an hour
Creamed in spice
Pepper, Paprika, Garlic
Loved at every stage
Baked for 20mins, then laced with fresh Thai basil, or a favourite green veggie.
Fun and crispy yet tender and soft within
Fresh lamb chops
Drizzled with garlic
A Soy sauce and chicken stock,
All broiled in passion
Lamb is Fried with garlic(5mins), then glazed and peppered, and finally simmered in the stock and soy for 20mins.
In each bite, is a tingle of ecstasy.
The scents of my love
The succulence of desire
Tastes of potential
If I may,
I beg to add a tip
Less is more while spicing
But more sides, means more fun
For long term lovers
Fresh hot peppers will add an extra thrill
For first time Valentines
A sweet chilli brings a kinky vibe
And for us all; share a dipping sauce for a sensual tinge
Softness of twilight
A stage set for a moment
For a touch of love
Where comfort and effort meet
Dwells the edge of bliss
