Very,Very Fast Food.

It was my birthday,
What should I do in celebration?
I know
I’ll invite the family to dinner.
So I sent out the invite
To my daughter
And granddaughter,
And my granddaughter’s friend,
Saying I will be cooking salmon.
The invite was accepted,
They were all coming,
Except.
Except granddaughter’s friend
Does not eat fish.
Do not worry she said
She will bring a steak,
That was fine,
Steak, like salmon,
Was fast food.
They arrived on the evening
And I was given the steak,
Talk about fast food,
I had seen rashers of bacon
Thicker than that steak.
I prepared the meal
And the last thing I cooked was the steak,
Ten seconds each side it took,
Very, very fast food.
I just could not stop laughing
At this lack of steak I had cooked.

    Oh lol, good write Gold.

    I had fast food last week eating a corned beef sarnie on the motorway at 70mph. 33 seconds per bite... any faster than that = indigestion, i.e. 80 mph.

    Oh.... and many happy returns. May you live long enough for your daughter to have to buy a larger cake tin to enable al those candles to be placed neatly on top.

      That is fast food, eating faster than 33 seconds per bite is certainly dangerous, you might have to come out d first gear.

      The tin she has already bought me I struggle to get it though the door.

      Angela here - Good Friday Uncle Andy. Brian & I are OMNIVORES so we would brought Sirloin Steaks and enjoyed your SALMON as well *Surf an* Turf* delicious. The steak you describe is normally used for *Hot Beef Sanies on Rye !* they are called MINUTE STEAKS which has a *Double Entendre !* MINUTE (as in very SMALL & THIN) and MINUTE (as in the time it takes to fry them) ~ OK ! They are an alternative on a Barbie instead of Hamburgers Cooked in an F Pan not on the griddle ! Very tasty avec Moutarde Anglaise !

      Blessings & Peace to You & Yours
      Love Angela - Brian - Smokey XOXOX

      The fun you had in cooking that steak left me with a smile when you compared it to bacon - - hope your birthday had some great moments for you Andy to stack away and remember again.

        Thank you Fay, I couldn't stop laughing at how thin it was.
        Yes memories are so important.

              'Talk about fast food,
              I had seen rashers of bacon
              Thicker than that steak.'
              as a fellow foody who dabbles in the fine art of cookery as a staple hobby, I burst out laughing at the picture of that lonely steak swimming perilously from side to side upon its vast canvas plate,
              Happy Birthday and best wishes for the year ahead!

                Thank you LB, cooking is a passion of mine, I have been doing it for over sixty years.
