A Pinch of Me – WP Weekly Writing Challenge

This is the very first time I am taking on a WordPress Weekly Writing Challenge.

This week’s challenge is stated below, to come out with an interesting recipe for sharing. 

How does the old saying go — girls are “sugar and spice and everything nice,” and boys are “snips and snails and puppy dog tails”?

Aside from not knowing what a “snip” is, I don’t buy it; we’re much more complex than lollipops and unicorns and toy trucks and frogs. This week, we want a window into the complexity that is you. We want your best recipes.

I am never a good chef, but a passable cook.  Nevertheless, I am going to share a pinch of me with you.

Recipe: A Cheesy Burnt Chop Mom


1 pound of fatigue (increase to 2 pounds or more if this is insufficient)

5 tbps of stress for tasting (a necessary ingredient)

10 drops of sleep (yes, only 10 drops)

10g of ear shit (for ignoring screams, this is also the cheesy part of the recipe)

10 ltrs of steam (when kids quarrel)

a bottle of red colouring (when I see red over spilled koko crunch)

a slab of thick makeup (to cover panda eyes)

a bucket of tears (when I need to let out steam)

To decorate:

infinite cups of joy

10 minutes of continuous laughter

6 ozs of sweet nothings

5 dashes of creative juice

8 heaps of smiles

a pinch of forgetfulness

endless LOVE


Add all the ingredients above into a big rubber inflatable pool.  Stir them continuously for 10 days without stopping.  Tips: for best results, stir them fast when the decibel in the house reaches 100dB, and stir them as slow as possible when you can read while still stirring with a leg. 

On the 10th day, decorate with the above list, with infinite joy, continuous laughter, sweet nothings, add in some creative juices, put on heaps of smiles, a pinch of forgetfulness (to forget anything that makes you unhappy) and lastly and most importantly, pour in endless LOVE.

I hope you enjoy my Cheesy Burnt Chop Mom recipe.

  5. Great “recipe.” I love reading what others wrote and when reading I am reminded of other things I could have added to my recipe. But I am glad I wrote the recipe for myself before reading other blogger’s posts. Thanks for sharing.
