Today’s quadrille prompt was to write a poem of exactly 44 words, one of which is the word “pepper.” It was a bit of a challenge to think of a topic for this one, but I ended up writing about how my family used to make jalapeño poppers using the jalapeños from my brother’s garden.
We’d take the jalapeño peppers
From the garden and make jalapeño poppers:
Carefully cut and seed them,
Stuff them with cream cheese and
More cheese and coat them with
Corn flakes, bake them and eat
Piping hot, with our family —
The spice of life.
