Cooking and Poetry. A Moment of bliss (Valentine special)

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
And pleasures
Of that

Wielder of my heart
On a day when bliss is close
Be my Valentine

For love;
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”

Sweet potato chips and Thai basil

Sweet Tatoes
Soaked for half an hour
Towel dried
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

Honey glazed goat/lamb chops

Fresh lamb chops
Drizzled with garlic
Honey glazed
Salt peppered
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
