  1. Good Morning, Everyone….

    🎶 POULTRY in motion…dancing close to me…A flower of devotion…swaying gracefully…🎶 “Poetry in Motion” – (with apologies to) Johnny Tillotson 1960 https://tinyurl.com/498bsncc
    🍗 The Chef and his apprentice…they discuss the use of herbs,
    And how to know the whens and whys…and what needs to be curbed…
    The sous chef def will HONOR what she’s being told today,
    (And EYELID…yes I tried my best…but there was just no way)…
    He makes sure to INFORM her that a good eye is the key,
    Especially with chicken…you must cook it properly…
    He has a favorite MOTTO, “You must look before you leap…
    If chicken is still pink inside…the herbs for now must keep”…
    She listens quite intently…wanting her skill to his chime…
    And watches as he sautés…’til he’s reached the TIME FOR THYME! 🍗

    I’ve a feeling that whether you cook or not, the words “Aromatic member of the mint family” will definitely lead you in the right direction with this one today…Show of hands…Who’s ever used the phrase “Aromatic member of the mint family”? I thought so…And ADD to that the sprig that the chef’s holding? Folks…we’ve got ourselves a solve…and it hardly took any THYME at all…

    Ok. David’s cooked up two new anagrams for us today, NHROO, and RIFMNO. The other two, TOMOT and LEDYIE, we’ve last seen in ‘21 and ‘20 respectively. And if my hand was held TO THE FIRE, I’d say that EYELID may be today’s stumper, with Yield leading the pack of first glance incorrect guesses…And as I mentioned above..the solve? Winner, winner…chicken dinner!…If the visual wasn’t enough to SERVE you well…the word WHEN used in both the dialogue and the question had to seal the VEAL, I mean CHICKEN…I mean deal…Jeez…I seem to be having a little trouble getting my words to MEAT my thoughts this morning…Anyway, no matter how you CUT IT…when the pink in that breast finally took a rest? It was TIME FOR THYME…

    Our cartoon? The drawing of our chef, who I’m calling Harry, seems to be a charcuterie, I mean caricature…(boy, I’m really TONGUE-tied this morning)…of someone I should probably recognize. But since I don’t INDULGE in watching TV cooking shows, I’m drawing a blank…(no pun intended). So if any of you aficionados of such shows knows who he might be, please feel free to comment. Or on the other hand, he may just be a “real life person” who’s not a “reel” life person…(ie) someone Jeff knows. And in that case, there’s no need for us be emBROILed any further…But as for the rest of the cartoon, it’s pretty much what MEATs the eye. We see the apprentice, Chickie, eagerly waiting with her tongs at the ready, two cast iron skillets hanging on the wall, a pot boiling on the stove’s back burner, and on the counter beside Harry two more chicken breasts, additional sprigs of thyme, and a bowl. And on the back table there appears to be a roast, detailed right down to the twine it’s tied with…Yep…this kitchen scene is definitely all it’s COOKED up to be!

    So… There you have it, Folks…Done. Have a good one. Be well, stay safe…and I’ll leave you with a little Chef/Herb humor for HENtertainment…Did you hear about the Chef who suddenly pasta way? He just seemed to run out of THYME…🍗🙋🏻‍♀️

    * Or perhaps …”Does Anybody Really Know What THYME It Is”?

  2. 👨🏻‍🍳 The restaurant’s chefs had a MOTTO…loosely translated in Italian…which they were happy to HONOR and INFORM any newcomers of…”Just as the lashes on your EYELID may be sparse…so should be your hand when it’s TIME FOR THYME…” 👨🏻‍🍳

    🤷🏻‍♀️ She left them on their HONOR, the first time alone they’d cook,
    She felt her EYELID twitching…her nerves a little shook…
    She made sure to INFORM them that cooking’s not like lotto,
    No way a game of chance…and that “Go lightly” was her MOTTO
    She hoped that they’d work slowly, ‘specially with the ribs of prime…
    And pay attention to when it would be the TIME FOR THYME! 🤷🏻‍♀️

  3. Good morning weekend !!! Enjoyed the words , they were thinking -fun ! My MOTTO has always been , don’t close your eyelid too soon before the answer . The chef did a good job to INFORM his helper of when it was TIME a to put the herbs in , and in HONOR aid him it was TIME FOR THYME ! So the song that flavored was 🎵 are you going to Scarborough fair ? Parsley , sage , rosemary, and thyme 🎵 my favorite two singers , Simon & Garfunkel 1966 . Everyone have a very spicy and flavorable Saturday !!

  4. Solved today’s Jumble in no Thyme at all. The puzzle was a blind solve. EYELID gave me pause, and I backed into the word after solving the puzzle. Then I remembered any thyme a word has 2 E’s and a Y, to check for “EYE”. Happy Abraham Lincoln’s Birthday! Have a great weekend!

  5. 👩🏻‍🍳 We’ve a chef and his garnish of choice,
    And his sous chef clings tight to his voice…
    She is learning the ropes,
    Gourmet cooking, she hopes…
    Will give her a career to rejoice! 👩🏻‍🍳

    🐓 With a chicken there’s so many ways,
    To prepare it..be frying or braise…
    Versatile for sure,
    Served as the dish du jour…
    And for budgets it definitely pays! 🐓

    🥬 We see Harry choose thyme as his herb,
    Chicken flavoring it won’t disturb…
    I much rather basil,
    And others may choose dill…
    Comes to chicken…no herb is absurd! 🥬

  6. Today is the third annual 🎥 GLOBAL MOVIE DAY. 🎥…I think if it wasn’t for movies…(and puzzles) most of us may have been out on the ledge during the deep throes of the pandemic. So…Pass the popcorn🍿…and enjoy a good movie today…🎥 🙋🏻‍♀️ https://tinyurl.com/44j68m9e

  7. It appears that the thyme it is here
    For the chef to make perfectly clear
    That the choice of spice
    Is what will entice
    And make the diners appear!

    So it’s time to sprinkle the thyme
    On poultry and chicken that’s prime
    Taste buds will respond
    Chef has gone f-a-a-a-r beyond
    But it’s just what he does all the time!

  8. Good morning. On a roll in the opposite direction like yesterday. Nothing further to say. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

  9. No blind solve…except Marsha knew how to tell THYME….that pretty much put it together for us prior to anagrams. EYELID gave me pause, but that’s about all. Cold and Windy in central Texas. See you Sunday
