Poetry Friday

Head over to Tabatha Yeatt's blog, 
The Opposite of Indifferencefor this week's
round-up of poetic goodness.  
Thanks, Tabatha, for hosting this week!

When our good friends, the Grahams (part of our chosen family), come to visit, we eat our way through Pike Place Market.  This poem captures a few favorites from members of our family both present and absent with a nod to Macaroni and Cheese Day and a link to a recipe.   

A Family Stroll through Pike Place Market

Hum bow at Mee Sum, Blake’s best treat
Macarons at the Le Panier, Lauren’s love
Piroshkys because Walt wants them & is willing to wait
A stop by Three Sisters Bakery for cookies for all
and sourdough bread for Lance
Peaches and cherries and green beans for later
And the final stop?
For Beecher’s mac & cheese, Sara’s favorite,
Heaven in a cardboard container!

-Ramona Behnke


  1. I LOVE this! The mini donuts are the only thing missing, and the crepe place...and...and...and. A single poem cannot contain th bounty of the market, but I love this one for highlighting favorites!

  2. Fantastic! I just visited Pike Place Market for the first time a couple of weeks ago....I love it!

  3. Terrific - love how personalities shine through each person's favorites. :0)

  4. Pike Place Market sounds like a place I want to visit!

  5. Yum! I would love to visit and taste one day.

  6. This sounds like a yummy place to visit! I want to take your poem along and stop off at all of these different places!

  7. Ramona, what a yummy walk down memory lane.
