Hurrah: Monthly Poetry Group


Peach Pecan Pie | recipe developed by Karen of | #recipe #dessert

 Last Friday of the month is for
Monthly Poetry Group to rhyme.
Diane, Mimi, and I take turns,
If You're Happy and you Know It, the theme this time.
As usual, today I'll try,
a poem to write . . . or fudge.
Whether I'm successful or not,
you get to be the judge.

Holidays are a hectic time,
there's so much going on.
Parties, gifts, cookie exchange,
and Secret Santas are drawn.

Planning and then preparing for
meals, and snacks, and sweets.
Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, birthdays too. 
Come to my house, everyone eats. 

Working in the kitchen, I
await kids from near and far.
Excited, anticipating, as
I listen for their car.

Making their favorite recipes,
and trying a few that are new.
I double up on everything so, 
they'll have some to take home too.

No matter how much work it takes,
it bothers me not a bit.
'Cause having us all together here,
makes me happy. And I know it.

  1. This brings back memories of living in Arkansas years ago, and picking peaches/making my own peach jam. I never thought of making a pie with it.

    1. The peaches along with the pecans give the pie a real southern feel.

  2. Never tried a peach pecan pie, damn as a young woman I had no idea what pecans were thankfully I now know they are a type of nut

  3. I've never heard of a peach, pecan pie. I've tried pecan pie and didn't like it. I cannot believe there are pies I don't like but sweet potato pie is another one. Give me a pumpkin or lemon meringue pie and I'm happy.

    1. I develop all of my own recipes, so I'm not surprised you hadn't heard of this one yet.

  4. Cooking for the family puts me in a happy place, also. Have fun!

  5. Cooking for family is a real labor of love.

  6. I’m Southern born. Peach and pecan is new to me. I like them both, worth a try. Donna.

  7. Beautifully written.. really captures the holiday season well.
