"Put veg in pot open, can and boil"
Which has the same cadence (meter?) as a phrase from Jessica's childhood:
"Paste on cardboard, colour and cut out"
They are fun to say! The repetition of stresses Da Du Da Du, with the little gallop in the middle of "colour" or "open". Try it.
Anyway, is there a name for this kind of poetry meter? Can you think of other examples of simple recipes that fit the same form? I tried and thought of:
"Crack egg in bowl, add oil and stir" for mayonnaise but it doesn't have the gallop... maybe:
"Crack egg in bowl, add flavour and oil" but it doesn't have the verb ending that makes it so satisfying.
"Fry rice in pot, slowly add hot stock"
