This is a fun response to the weekly prompt "Spicy Fibs" at
One Deep Breath. I love to cook Indian cuisine and play with the aromatic and tasty spices. Puttanesca is a favorite dish to cook as well.

To create a Fib:

In essence, there are only 2 rules. The first rule is the sequence of syllables which is 1/1/2/3/5/8. The second rule is that no one-syllable lines can contain an article (the, a, la, le, etc.) That's it.
