Wanted: culinary carols

The weather is still so horrid
The kinda weather to make potes florid
But do versifiers rave about stew?
Noo, noo, noo, noo, noo, noo, noo, noo, noo

Your own kitchen is your oyster
While the kids all frolic and royster
So think about tender beef stew
Moo, moo, moo, moo, moo, moo, moo, moo, moo

And who’s got a fave Yule ditty
With seasoning, wise and witty?
Only OZ and L Dubya too?
Who, who, who, who, who, who, who, who, who?

  1. Can’t let OZ get too smug so here is another one.

    Low Wattage :

    Another.

    All Brussels Sprouts rejoice
    You’ll never be my choice!
    Give me time to have my say
    News! News!
    I’d sooner go without today
    Spud or Swede they’re OK now
    But Sprouts are only good to throw
    Good to throw away!
    Good to throw away!

    All Brussels Sprouts rejoice
    You’ll never be my choice!
    Cauli cheese I would not miss
    Joy! Joy!
    Spinach even Chard, Swiss
    Cabbage, good, so ask for more
    Leave the sprouts upon the floor
    Give the sprouts a miss
    Give the sprouts a miss

    All Brussels Sprouts rejoice
    You’ll never be my choice!
    Marrow, stuffed is what I crave
    Peace! Peace!
    Garlic’d beans are worth a rave
    Or green peas minted overall
    But Brussels cast a dismal pall
    Give the sprouts a wave
    Give the sprouts a wave.

  2. (To the tune of “O Tannenbaum” – aka “The Red Flag”)

    O Brussel sprout, poor Brussel sprout,
    Why do so many hate you?
    With turkey raw or overcooked,
    Disgusting bread sauce looks like puke,
    There’s so much worse than you. Ne’er fear,
    I’ll keep the sprout flag flying here.
