Haiku Recipe

This Writing Assignment asks you to write a recipe in only Haiku format. It is a 3 star assignment, but I would have rated it a 4. It wasn’t easy to keep all the main elements of the recipe without going away from the 5-7-5 format. I did it.

I decided to find a common 80s recipe. I went with the Sloppy Joe, or also known as Manwich in the 80s.
