What's for Dinner #225-Sumer is Icumen in (Thru Jun 18, 2013)

Indulge me here: I was a medieval literature major in college, and I can't help but think of this poem (sometimes known as the cuckoo poem) when the weather warms up.

Despite promises that the temperatures today would be in the 80s, tonight's dinner will involve stew beef, which was defrosted yesterday. I'm thinking Mexican, but we'll see what rjbh20 is thinking. You never know.

Sumer is icumen in,
Lhude sing cuccu!
Groweþ sed and bloweþ med

And springþ þe wde nu,
Sing cuccu!
Awe bleteþ after lomb,
Lhouþ after calue cu.
Bulluc sterteþ, bucke uerteþ,
Murie sing cuccu!
Cuccu, cuccu, wel singes þu cuccu;

Ne swik þu nauer nu.

Sing cuccu nu. Sing cuccu.
Sing cuccu. Sing cuccu nu!
