Summary: Something silly and light. I have an irrational hatred of cooking certain things. Pork chops is high on the list - too much effort, too little pay back. Dippy eggs is on there too and the smell of HP sauce makes me want to heave - unless it's on mince and tatties or a corned beef sandwich. I can also have it on a ham sandwich (but only if there is no butter). I'm a foodie weirdo!

If a Hell for food existed 
I would chuck in one by one, 
all the things that I hate cooking, 
find quite tasteless 
or plain wrong. 

I would give pork chops the heave ho, 
Lemon Chicken I’d discard. 
To be fair, I’ve gone off lamb chops.
Planning dinners 
gets quite hard!

Boiled eggs bring their own heartache 
in the love/hate to and fro.
Just how many and how long for?
Plus the egg/toast 

I can cook a roast, no problem
and my Coq au Vin’s from scratch
Cottage pie though, brings on fury
and a nasty,
angry rash.

So irrational? Well, maybe - 
but these dishes feel like foe
and if we're talking condiments
HP Sauce is 
first to go.
