Fannie Farmer picked some peas and put them in a pot;

then she chopped fresh carrots and added them to the lot.

Potatoes; onions; along with diced tomatoes to be a stew;

cubes of beef for heartiness; a dash of salt; she was though.

Opening a window in her kitchen wide; anticipation grew;

She hated dining all alone; but what is a widow gal to do?

Simmered on low heat for some time; Fannie served it up;

fresh baked bread, with churned butter, she sat down to sup.

Then a knock upon her door; it was a neighbor stopping by;

“I smelled your stew; made me hungry, I cannot tell a lie.

I shouldn’t invite myself to dine; but here’s a fresh baked pie.”

“Do sit down my neighbor friend; there is plenty left for you;

Your pie is welcome as are you; we shall both have stew.”

Before long another knock; a traveling salesman at her door;

“Good day Ma’am; could I come in? My feet are really sore.

You don’t have to buy a thing; it’s free, if I might have your stew.”

Fannie sat another place; smiling broadly because she knew;

Every time she made this dish; company would stop in to dine;

She didn’t have to eat alone; and for Fannie that was just fine.
