The Ranch Cook

The Ranch Cook

I get up early
I mix and I knead
Making things from scratch
for that is my creed.

I feed my husband,
see him out the door
Then start peeling taters –
which is quite a chore!

I frost the sweet rolls
to take out for break
Then I have many
apple pies to bake.

I bake and I boil
I stew and saute
I roast and I boil
and toast the bruleé.

Then lunch is ready
but where are the men?
It’s noon, but they’re still
in the brandin’ pen.

Just turn the oven low
Sit down with a book
Doesn’t bother me – it’s
The life of a ranch cook!
