It’s what’s for dinner

September 13, 2021

From Charli Mills at the Carrot Ranch is this week’s challenge.

September 9, 2021, promptIn 99 words (no more, no less), write a story about the cooking show. It can be any cooking show, real or imagined. Who is there? What happens? Make it fun or follow a disaster. Go where the prompt leads!

It’s what’s for dinner

Everyone wrote about the zombie apocalypse, but no one really believed it could happen.


I won’t bore you with viral genetics; I’ll just say that as SARS-CoV-2 continued to mutate over 103 years, the infected – 94% of the population – didn’t suffer the same as their ancestors, but instead became zombies.

A world of 10.8 billion zombies, all of them interested in different culinary traditions because there’re only so many ways to cook human flesh.


“Huuhnee, please turn on TeeVee?”

“Uhh kay, sweetie.”

If you dish not cut it, chefs. Youuu wuhl be chopped. Open baskets now.

    Fun take on one of the shows I watch. Though I turn a blind eye to some of the celerity guest judges… All of the cooking shows could stand to move just a tad faster. If they don’t – I chop them!

      I agree about the speed of the shows and some of the celebrity judges. I like some of them (hello Alex Guarnaschelli!) and others are just annoying. Beat Bobby Flay is good because it’s quick.
