Pizza, Trail Mix, Bread Pudding Poems (Writer's Workshop)

Once again I am attempting a poem thanks to Mama Kat's Writer’s Workshop prompt to write a poem about your favorite food. I have three favorite foods so I present you with three poems (and I use that word loosely).

Casamel's Pizza

Pizza Please!

Pizza is a favorite of mine,
My husband will tell you so.
Pizza please! Pizza please!

Although I could eat as many as nine,
I only eat two which is hard to do!
Give me more! Give me more!

It is so delicious, I have it three times a week!
It’s not all that nutritious, so other food I seek,
Oh, what will I have for lunch?
My stomach says “pizza please”—that is my hunch!

Pizza please, pizza please!
I could eat it every day!
It’s so tasty and yummy good,
Give me more if you would!

Chocolate Trail Mix

Trail Mix

Our chocolate trail mix makes a great snack,
The secret is to save some back.
Those chocolate balls, raisins, cranberries and assorted nuts,
Make quite the mixture of temptation for us!
Portion control is the way,
To have some trail mix every day!

What is bread pudding?

Bread Pudding from Giant Eagle
It’s not really pudding,
It’s not really bread.
It’s hard to explain,
But I know in my head,
That it has raisins,
And maybe some bread,
It’s kind of thick and sticky,
But it must be said,
It is a good food that I love very much,
And enjoy for breakfast, dinner or lunch!

What is your favorite food?

The third poem sounds a lot like a Shel Silverstein poem! And I agree with you on pizza...I could it it every day of my life, for ANY meal. I choose to write a poem on a stale cookie, so I'd love to see what you think if you get the time today! Great job! This is my second time stopping by here from the workshop!

Passing by from Mama Kat's. Wow! You sure do have loads of favourite food. Making sure you don't play favourite to any one of them, you've even written 3 poems :-)

Stopping by from Mama Kat's... YUM! I just had bread pudding for the first time so I'm not sure it's a favorite yet but I totally agree on its deliciousness. And I have to agree on pizza and trail mix. Those are my downfalls to weight loss. Good job on the poetry. I'm not brave enough to try the more creative writing prompts yet!

I can't have Papa Murphy's pizza in the house...its like CRACK. I can't stop eating it.

Loved your poems! My favorite food is my husband's homemade tacos with homemade taco shells. Portion control goes out the window when he makes those!

I have no idea why it's called bread pudding. But it is yummy. And now I want pizza for dinner.

I can do well with portion control with trail mix around. It is so tempting.

Wonderful poems.

O, goodness, the power of a poem. Now I want some pizza :) :) Actually, pizza is one of my favorite foods!!! Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

Just like you, I could eat pizza every day! That trail mix sure looks good, too.

Pizza is a popular food; I bet a lot of people could eat it every day. On the biggest Loser, Arther, the biggest guy they ever had on the show, said he used to have a whole pizza at 8:30 every night. He didn't even have to call for it. He just had a standard order and they automatically delivered it for him every day!

I just had to share the pizza poem with my boys...!

(my favorite would be the bread pudding...I could eat the whole pan...who needs pizza when you have bread pudding?)
