Thanksgiving Cooking

It was Thanksgiving Day. Master Action Words was in the kitchen, watching his parents. They were cooking Thanksgiving dinner.

“You look sad,” said Mother.

“I am trying to think of an action word that goes with Thanksgiving but I can’t think of one,” said Master Action Words.

“Cooking is an action word,” said Father.

Master Action Words thought about what his father had just said and his father was right. Cooking is an action word.

“Come to think of it,” said Master Action Words. “Cooking is several action words.”

“Yes,” said Mother. “You are right. I am peeling the vegetables. Your father is chopping them. Peeling and chopping are action words.”

“We are roasting the turkey,” said Father. “Then we will be basting it. Roasting and basting are action words.”

“Then the potatoes will need mashing and the gravy will need stirring,” said Master Action Words. “Mashing and stirring are action words.”

“Once that is all done,” said Mother. “Then comes the best part.”

“Eating,” laughed Master Action Words. “Eating is an action word.”

“Yes,” said Father laughing too.

“And don’t forget the cleaning after we eat,” said Mother.

“Yes,” said Master Action Words. “Cleaning is an action word.”

“It certainly is,” said Father. “A very important one too.”


 

Moral of this Story:

  • Cooking is a very important part of Thanksgiving and it is several action words wrapped up in one.
