A Cowboy's Point of View
Some of you may remember Fred Engel's COWBOY POINT OF VIEW for making Baked Potatoes and Pinto Beans Over the Fire. Well Fred has blessed us with another of his fine recipe poems, this time for Zucchini Bread. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do. If you are interested in a non-poetic version, check out my recipe for Zucchini Bread.
Now, you've got your plain white bread, brown bread,
raisin bread, French bread, and cracked wheat
You've got corn bread, nut bread, banana bread, 7 grain
In fact, there's all kind o' breads that you can eat
And it seems that it just doesn't matter
What the ingredients are that you want to use
Because you can make bread out of almost anything
Whatever you might pick and choose
Now, I eat 'em all
And I enjoy every bite
I especially enjoy the loaves baked at home
That you can smell from the oven in the morning or at night
Now zucchini, in the summer, as we all know
Is a very popular crop
And usually by the end of September, most folks say
"Enough with the zucchini recipes, please, it's time to stop!"
Although, when you mash up that little squash
And pour it the pan, all mixed up in the batter
By the time it comes out of the oven
The fact that it's zucchini doesn't seem to matter
So, when talkin' about breads, take it from me
With a cowboy point of view
Zucchini bread is down right delicious
So grab some out o' the garden and bake a loaf or two!
And that's my point of view, FRED
