You’re in the kitchen – in your gatkes
Working on your Bobbie’s latkes
Peeling, slicing, chopping, grating-
Don’t worry – it is worth the waiting
Peel that onion, slice that tater
We’ll all be glad we waited later
Add the egg, stir in the flour
It takes less than half an hour
After that you stand and fry them
Time for judges now to try them
If (God forbid) you’re not the winner
Stella will have a tasty dinner.
5 – 7 PM., Tuesday, Dec. 4
Come celebrate with us. Have a glass of wine, listen to some readings by author Margie Golick.
Meet illustrator Jane Churchill.

In fact nobody’s talking – they’re all watching screens
The old folks the toddlers, even the teens
I Pads and lap tops are there to engage us
We each have a screen – it’s pretty outrageous
And suddenly ominous thunder and lightening
The power goes off – it’s a little bit frightening
It may be many hours before it’s restored
Without electronics we’re apt to be bored
Aha! an idea from a resourceful relation
“Let’s figure out how to make conversation.”
It’s not balogna or salami
Or pickled beef or hot pastrami
Its marinade has secret spices
It’s cut by hand in thickish slices
Forget your crass, gourmandish ways
No ketchup, salsa, mayonnaise
A touch of mustard thinly spread
Is all you slather on your bread
It’s served on rye, not pumpernickel
A side of cole slaw, and a pickle
If that sounds good just visualize
Your order with a plate of fries
And one more thing – unless you’re broke
It goes well with a cherry coke.
