That familiar Smell – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

5 Lines -Peanut Butter




“Without peanut butter, I might starve.”  Judy Blume

That Familiar Smell

Oil sizzles and you knock back the heat,
the heart races as you pile in garlic, onion, chilli,
along with coconut milk, sugar and soy,
but it wouldn’t be satay, it wouldn’t be right
without two tablespoons of peanut butter.

  1. I would love that recipe, and what is it served with? I’m guessing rice?

  3. Interesting recipe…might have to try it. Is it for dipping bread/crackers or drizzling over veggies or meat? Thanks for sharing.
