Anything with chips

Charles George William Dupree

is a funny little kid – his parent’s agree

he’ll eat breakfast and dinner – without any fuss

but there’s something the doctors need to discuss

Why little Charlie will eat all on his plate

if only there’s a helping of chips to wait

Now fish and chips are whats called a staple up north

and most weekends Mum and dad would order forth

a helping of haddock with the tastiest tatas

and perhaps a pudding to enjoy later

but now little Charlie want’s all his food brought

like the chipped potato that his Mum and dad bought

meaning Pork chops and Beefsteak are cut up and sliced

and all vegetables have to be served up and diced

And its not just the veggies – its his puddings as well

but Charlie and his chums, they think its swell

eating his puddings served up like chips

with a custard sauce and a toodle pip!

Instant

It’s just the thing on a winters morning

Noted for the quickness in its preparation

Some aficionados might complain its not “The real thing”

Though if you checked the ingredients

And looked – Milk, Sugar, Cocoa – its all there

Noses attracted by the Chocolatey waft

That travels through the house from the Kitchen

Rituals

#napowrimo #chocolate #rituals

Three states of chocolate…..

a sweet piece by inky

You stood in the newsagent
observing the aisles
like an aztec worshipper
in front of a chocolate altar
Armed with your golden coins
you lifted up the chosen bar
and waited to pay at the till
The foil shone under the lamps
as you caught a sly smell
the waiting would be worth it
Golden coin for for chocolate heaven
now rubbing the bar , releasing that smell
as you take your time, with each square
A brisk Snap, an expectation
A scent of flavour, a delactation
A chocolate piece melts, a taste sensation

Taking five

#FFFC #Christmas #Gingerbread

Taking five

He escaped the initial onslaught of christmas day

Hiding in plain sight whilst watching the fondant animals

get chomped by all and sundry

now lying in marshmallow luxury

in his grand gingerbread palace

his life clock – short, much like himself

but he’ll enjoy his time till the hot chocolate gets brewed.

Salford 11th April 2020

A sweet sounding prompt from the inkwell

Hi Folks

Inky back with another photographic delight from the inkwell.

all sorts of candy treats….from milk chocolate bears to candy bananas……

Yes. it is the last day of lent…and yes it has been a pain knowing just where i’d stashed all that yummy stuff away till now

However , Given the odd sunday allowance and my birthday tea –

i reckon i’ve done rather well from abstaining from the sweet stuff,

there is of course one thing that re-emerged on my birthday

And its not being opened till Bank Holiday Monday 🙂

As its easter – and im doing Napowrimo – here’s a little something sweet inspired by Matthew Tomlinson’s sweet shop at Salford’s Lark Hill Place

It’s called Pick and Mix

Open up your bag, and round
your choice of sweets for just a pound
a choice of sweets, is hard to choose
with more than just the penny chews.

Some candied shrimps, some lemon drops
chocolate footballs, fizzy pops
Bonbons of strawberry, cola cubes
Dolly mixtures and sherbet in tubes

Candy lollies in different flavours,
Fruit sherbet drops with tastes to savour
lemon pastilles, and aniseed balls
and space dust that’s fizzy to not one kid but all

Chocolate cups, a favourite for me
were usually the thing to be eaten wi’ glee
But don’t eat them all now, or else there won’t be
any room left in your tummy for tea!

Detective

Do you know who did it ?

Even as you look around the house for clues

The person or persons behind the act are

Eating the evidence!

Crumbs of chocolate covered cookies

Tumbled to the ground , travel

In a trail – leading to some

Very crafty little individuals

Expect some repentance at the tea time table!

Nutcracker (Cookie Jar)

Second day of the Christmas Countdown

everyone knows , that soon this drum major will be

rapping out a tune on his drum – for

gooey chocolate cookies might be guarded by him

expecting little ones to go on a hunt

not knowing where the treasure is hiding

that’s something – the dear major is keeping under his hat

Chocolate

#Chocolate #Food #Colours #CYW #Brown

Captured in a colourful shell
heavenly scented semi solid seen
on confectioners shelves everywhere
crafted by masters of the art and poured
over delicious treats such as strawberry or hazelnut
locking these flavours in for a time, but
as the shell is exposed to the slightest of heat
the shell cracks open – and the flavours
escape – enjoy

Double

#FOWC #Double

a sweet tasting response from inky to fandango’s latest one word challenge

Not your normal after dinner treat

it’s got two of everything, vanilla scoops, chocolate scoops, brownies, the lot

covered in drizzles of sweet chocolate syrup

even the wafer’s got a dash of cocoa running through it

pudding – a nice light one after that large dinner

unless you really fancy jam roly poly, swimming in custard

decisions , decisions

Chocolate Orange

Tap, and Unwrap

That’s how it goes

and a scent of orange

wafts up my nose

Scent – then a taste

of orange from oil

captured in chocolate segments

held in the foil

Dark light and White

Mixes of chocolate and zest

Melt in the mouth zing

A taste that’s the best
