Stuffed aubergine

cooked in a cookery class
cooking all together
nearly cut my finger off
door closed against
nearly came off
stitched on

what have you cooked today?

mother used to cook Middle Eastern food
stuffed aubergine
stuffed marrows plenty of rice
bamiae, okra, ladies fingers
rice always had
boiled rice
stuffed marrows
stuffed aubergine
stuffed with rice and mince meat
mother from Egypt
father from Syria
I was born in Jamaica
mother didn’t want to come to England
always raining

what have you cooked today?
