breakfast enchiladas

let’s see first things first
everybody out of the kitchen
brown pork sausage on stovetop
flour tortillas soaking in salsa
beat a few eggs [whilst
whistling the andy griffith theme song]
scrambling them lightly
in the buttered cast iron pan
melting in shredded cheddar at the end
everything placed in bowls on the counter
feet perfectly still & hips swaying
happily assembling one after another
oven heating to three seventy-five

  1. I love this! What a picture. Small moments of light and joy (and deliciousness).

  2. A fun snapshot of time, a day in the life.
