The kitchen filled with love and laughter
As we embarked on creating the batter.
The call to three countries reached
In England, Germany and South Korea each
Of us began the ritual of our Saturday bake.
We all knew what we had to make,
My Nutella-filled peanut butter cookie plate
that LaReine had seen and desperately wanted to taste.
We measured out each ingredient in no haste
And began the mixing that made our muscles ache
We scooped them up and placed them in the oven
As Jin’s first batch burnt up half a dozen
And LaReine’s firsts all merged into one
But before long all the cookies were perfectly done.
