Basting

Happy Thanksgiving!

Here’s a fun poem that was in a 1915 magazine.

Basting

Grandma bastes her turkey
With gravy in a pan.
I watch her when she does it,
And help her when I can.
But why she calls it basting
Is somewhat hard to guess;
For mother bastes with needles
When she makes me a dress.
