A few puns for fun, and some relish for foodies to cherish.

Fiesta of the feast

I wanted to prepare a feast to surpass all feasts,
I needed some training though,
I dug up a plump brown tuber,
"I'm sorry, I ain't no coach potato", said he,
I needed someone with experience,
"Bean there, done that", said Mr. Legume,
I needed a philosopher to put things in perspective,
"I Yam, what I Yam", said he,
I needed to bake some bread,
I approached Mr. Yeast, and he rose to the occasion,
I needed someone to liven up the proceedings,
"Count me in, I'm a fungi", said Mr. Mushroom,
I needed some vigor and wildness on the dance floor,
"Don't worry we're nuts anyway", said the Almonds and the Cashews,
I needed some volunteers in the kitchen,
"Lettuce do it", chimed in some enthusiastic voices,
I figured the hall could use some brightening up,
"24 carrots at your service", said the radiant ones as they formed a diamond,
I needed some music for the hall,
"We're here", said the Beets and the Bell Peppers,
"Security, please", said I,
The Gourds positioned themselves at the door,
With everything set, I announced, "Let us start with a blessing",
And ready was the response, "Peas be with you".
