Alejna’s Busy Day Bistro
Corn on the Couch
A paper bag filled with freshly popped kernels of corn. Skillfully microwaved, and usually not burned. Available with butter-like flavor or “natural” flavoring. Served on the sofa.
Lowering the Bar

A bowl of cereal, eaten at the kitchen table.
Life is a Bowl of Cheerios
A bowl of cereal, eaten while standing in the kitchen.
Variety of Life

This week’s Monday Mission placed orders for posts written in the form of a menu. Please note that I don’t always eat this way. But, well, there are days when the farm-fresh vegetables stay in the refrigerator.
