#SoCS – Allspice


Thyme and time again, every week, it seems, I post a prompt with a bit of an idea in my head of what I’m going to write, but when I finally sit down, it’s something else. This week, I’m writing rather gingerly (in a way), because I’m trying to do it around all the other things I should be doing for tomorrow’s birthday party dinner.

I invited friends and family to cumin join us, and have already bought cards for myself and my mother to give to Alex (a cardamom), but I still have to go buy a few presents. And wrap them. Which of course will make them all parsley. (That made me laugh.)

Although he doesn’t eat (my son is tube-fed), Alex likes to choose what everyone else wants, and if it’s something that tastes good to him, he’ll have some. For tomorrow, he’s requested “big chicken,” which means a whole barbecued chicken from the grocery store. And a Spiderman cake for dessert, which I really should order soon. Mustardiness rule my life all the time? I need to follow my own sage advice: don’t procrastinate! I need to sumac myself upside the head with it once in a while.

Whatever happens, I’m sure tomorrow’s dinner will be peppered with love, free of a salt (ouch, that was a stretch), and anise day all around. In fact, it may just be a macing. And dinner itself is sure to be savory.

Fall is when it gets chili outside.

  9. A CHARMING tale πŸ™‚ You cracked me up! I laughed loudest at anise day.
    Sassy is also fond of big chicken. Seriously, that’s what she calls it, since wee, but in her case it’s rotisserie chicken that I’d buy for her when it was just the three of us and Moo and I are not meat people. See also, baby chicken, which is popcorn chicken picked up in the deli for her, for the very same reason. Hah!
    I would like some Spiderman cake right now.


  10. You made me chuckle more than once with this one. Have a great party!


  11. Very clever! Slip the seasonings’ names in wherever you cayenne…
