He seared it and seasoned it nice

You take a bite and you think twice

The hell did I eat?

That tasted like feet!

This should have been turned into rice

*** I love cauliflower but this is getting ridiculous***

    My husband has forbidden cauliflower pizza crust in this house. He considers it an abomination. I've never tried to pass it off to him as steak! :D Fun limerick!

    Yeah I’m all in when it comes to adding more veggies, but I feel like cauliflower just wouldn’t do a steak justice 😆

  • Caroline Craven13 days ago

    Ha! Good one! Cauliflower is super gross!

    LOL! I didn’t know this was a thing. I like cauliflower but I’m very carnivorous.

    Your poetic skills are impressive and your sense of humor is great, even if the cauliflower didn't turn out as expected.

    Love it, Donna! Made me smile! :) You've got a great sense of humour and are so clever with word choice and developing a theme!

  • Gotta say, that grilled cauliflower looks sooo good! But the verse is clever!

    That one really works well in using the Limerick rhythm to pump-up the humor. That photo looks like someone's baking up a cheese-cauliflower snack. It's making my mouth water and I just finished supper!
