A Mac-n-Cheesy Poem from a Bunch of Buttercups


Hello and Happy Poetry Friday! Be sure to visit Tabatha at The Opposite of Indifference, where we are celebrating National Macaroni & Cheese Day!

Here in Birmingham it's our 4th annual Camp Buttercup "for bold and creative girls" -- the homespun camp we created for me and some very special young girls in my life (including a precious adopted sister and a pair of sweet nieces).

Here is our mac-n-cheesy group poem:


CHEESY SUMMER DAYS

sunkissed waves
of mac-n-cheese

a beach
in your mouth

salti-licious!

- Anna, BrenLeigh, Irene & MadiLynn

....and... because we could not reach an agreement about what kind of macaroni and cheese is best (I like homemade, one likes Kraft, another Velveeta.... we decided to feast on all three!)

BrenLeigh, MadiLynn, Anna

Thank you, Tabatha, for this great idea... and to all of you Poetry Friday poets: we will be slurping your poems today!! xo

  2. Love the fun beach connections to mac & cheese! I bet you and the Buttercups are having a blast together. Perhaps you should share your homemade mac & cheese recipe!

  3. Salt-i-licious! A new favorite word. Camp Buttercup.That's wonderful. My kids are going to Nana Camp in a week and they always learn some cooking, some jigsaw puzzle skills and the art of conversation. Nothing better than a good summer camp for kids!

  6. Now that is an ocean I can get behind. Love the poem. Glad you all got your favorites.

    What a wonderful camp. We are doing mulch camp. Weeding, edging and spreading a mountain of mulch all summer. These are good skills. :-)

  11. Love your group poem - mac 'n cheese can be so addictive, can't it? (And P.S: In the Pacific Northwest, we swear by the local Beecher's Flagship Cheese Sauce spread generously over the macaroni and baked....)Here's a link from Martha Stewart: http://www.marthastewart.com/319315/beechers-flagship-cheese-sauce

  12. Another wonderful collaboration - Go, Buttercup Girls! Headed to the beach here tomorrow - will tuck your poem into my gear and glory in the words and your buttercuppy richness.

  14. Camp Buttercup sounds like such great fun! You girls did a fine job of capturing the feeling of eating mac n cheese. "a beach in your mouth!"

  15. The Buttercups have a winner with this poem. I love the line a beach in your mouth. I hope all of you enjoyed feasting on the mac n cheese of all kinds, too.

  16. That is a sweet poem! They should put it on the back of Kraft mac & cheese boxes. Wouldn't it be amazing if packaging came with a poem on it somewhere?

  17. What a great memory for the girls--"remember that time we wrote a poem about mac & cheese with Aunt Irene?"

  18. Got to love those sun-kissed waves of golden, cheesy goodness!

  19. Now that is a clever way to serve up mac and cheese: poetry-style! Irene, can you please ask the young girls if they would let me place this image poem at my summer gallery, Sunkissed Summer (invitation will be coming out soon)?
