Jack Sprat

Could eat no fat, his wife could eat no lean;

And so, betwixt them both, they licked the platter clean.

Hot-cross Buns!

Hot-cross Buns!

One a penny, two a penny,

Hot-cross Buns!

Hot-cross Buns!

Hot-cross Buns!

If ye have no daughters,

Give them to your sons.

Cooking Poem

Cooking Poem

When you're cooking in the kitchen,
You're learning all the while --
To pour and measure, mix and stir
And sift flour into a pile.

Scrub your hands before you start
Then gather up the gear --
Like pots'n pans and measuring cups
That you use throughout the year.

Go over the recipe, step-by-step,
So you'll know just what to do.
By carefully following the directions,
It won't be hard for you.

Have a hot pad handy
And an adult standing by --
So you won't hurt yourself
When using the stove or baking a pie.

Besides the fun and learning,
There's always cleaning up to do,
And even though it's quite a chore,
It's part of cooking too.

But after all the work is done,
It will soon be time for dinner.
And when someone asks for seconds,
You'll know you've cooked a winner!
