Tag Archives: mulled over


Even old New Englanders say,

The beans can get away…

Something wrong

Breaks into song–

We get bean bullets Sunday!

It happened occasionally,

My parents would agree…

In the crockpot

The batch was shot,

So we ate them CAREFULLY!

It happened this weekend too,

Beans she could hardly chew…

She had teeth pulled

so we mulled

Over just what to do.

I have my evening meal,

For the next few days I feel…

But first the soup

I thickened to gloop,

For breakfast to seal the deal!
