Roast Pumpkin


Roast pumpkin with mangrove jack - you have to 
agree it is different, and that suggests thinking of 
ulterior motive from contingent origins, like soup
its a whole pumpkin - more than a feast - so yes, 
we’d both be party to pumpkin broth which ranks
up there with caviar in our culinary literacy; 200o 
should please these oven-wise taste-buds - and 
the promised savour already intervenes in truth 

So we’re watching two halves brown beautifully - 
there isn’t anything but pumpkin in the pan - tho 
seemingly wasted occasion it also says we’d be 
hard to turn from plans hatched in halcyon age, 
cooking like Grandma & Mother did way before 
an universal advent of the electric range …
