Megans Cookin: Bourbon Pecan Tart With Chocolate Drizzle

Friday, November 23, 2007

Bourbon Pecan Tart With Chocolate Drizzle


It was thanksgiving,
and the house was as clean as could be,
The Christmas decorations came down from the attic, only not the tree.
The lights went up outside, despite the cutting wind.
The children are almost grown, so in Santa we only pretend.
Ma in her stockings, dad in his jeans
His only request was the green beans
Dessert for thanksgiving, what should it be?
There's only 3 of us to make happy you see.
So we had to have the molten cakes,
but also a tart I wanted to bake.
Then in the kitchen arose such a clatter,
I went to the window to see what's the matter.
Rich was loading the golf stuff, a game to play,
While Rudolph was busy playing in the hay.
As they took off, out of my sight,
I turned to my tart for another big bite.
I checked the newspaper for the big deals.
I'm not getting up at four, not even for those thrills.
The holiday is just around the bend,
I don't suppose you have any money to lend? Later that night, with my curlers wound tight,
I climbed into bed without even a fight.
We all had a belly full that went to our head.
As I fell into a deep sleep, I appreciated my nice warm bed.
On this Thanksgiving lets not forget, to say our prayers and be grateful a bit!

Hi Megan, terrific poem and tart. And what a bonus that this recipe comes from cooking light. Love that drizzle pattern you made on the tart.

Ha ha - that's great! Like Dr Seuss does WTSIM :) And the tart sounds incredible... Thanks for daring to go topless for this month's WTSIM!
