Kate: Hello, and welcome back to Cauldron Cooking, the show that puts the magic back in your kitchen. I’m your host Kate. Earlier in the show we talked about new uses for poison ivy, and I also want to tell listeners who are just tuning in that our recipe for cream of vulture soup is on the show’s website. Check it out.
All right, now it’s time to take some calls. We have Diane from Salem on line seven. Hi, Diane, what’s your question?
Diane: Hi Kate, thank you so much for taking my call. This isn’t exactly a cooking question but I have an issue with my stepdaughter and I wondered if you could suggest anything.
Kate: Oh, yes, kids. They’re always hard to deal with, aren’t they? Especially when they grow up.
Diane: Right. That’s my problem. She’s getting older and she’s starting to really get in my way.
Kate: But you don’t want to kill her.
Diane: Well, I did, but not anymore. I’d just like something that’ll, you know, take her out of the picture.
Kate: Let me think. Okay, I have just the thing for you. We have a great recipe for a poison apple.
Diane: That won’t kill her?
Kate: No, this is perfect. It will just put her in a coma. Have you got a crypt or something where you can put her while she sleeps?
Diane: I’ve got a crystal case that rests on a plinth out in the woods.
Kate: Fabulous. She’ll be perfectly preserved there for as long as you want, and here’s the good part: she can only be revived with a kiss from a charming prince. And it’s not like there are a lot of those wandering around the forests, am I right?
Diane: Yes. That sounds absolutely perfect. Thank you so much Kate!
Kate: No problem, and good luck. Email us some pictures so we can see how it’s worked out. We’ll put them on the website. Thanks for your call, Diane.
Well, it looks like the witching hour is almost up, so I’ll just leave you with this: When shall we three meet again, in thunder, lightning, or in rain?
Of course you know it’ll be the same time next week. I’ll see you then.
