Spare rib

#halloween #chinese #pork #spare #ribs #octpowrimo

When weekend comes around

I enjoy a Chinese take away

There’s plenty of flavours to go at

Come All Hallows’ eve, I avoid it completely

Heavens allow … it’s not anything religious

Events might conspire….where I get a visit from the piggy that The

Spare ribs came from

As they were released from the

Strings holding them together, the

Purple tipped stalks were prepared for the dinner plate

A motley bunch of greens

Roasted in a pan with other vegetables

A side to the main food star on the plate

Green and purple showing off the white of the fish

Up and around where it were sitting

Something to chew over , with the fish and tomatoes

Dunkin :image from stock art by inky

It wasn’t the walk through wintery woods

that bothered this hardened explorer

or the westerly wind knocking

on the wooden window frame

or the wait for his dinner to be cooked on

his camping gas stove

It was more the length of time

spent dunking his oaty ships biscuits in his tea

before the biscuit fell into his mug.

Home cooking

#promptuarium #home #cooking

I

Classical scholars

sat in ivory towers

will tell you – being far away

there’s nothing better than

the tastes of home

II

Preparation

for the evening meal

is everything – Peeled and chopped

and ready – for roasting, grilling, baking or boiling

of course – salad greens? just need rinsing and dressing

III

Food Fads ? a kitchen for all tastes

Fish and Chips ? Pie ? or Chicken perhaps ?

brought together with carrots and parsnips

Served up on a plate with greens

or a round bowl with barley as a broth

Picnic

#writeclub #woods

Teddy bears picnic (Pic from stock art by inky)

I

Pay close attention

if you go down to the woods today, you

could spot something furry

noshing away on honeycomb

its carved away

carefully from a nearby tree

II

Pears and Apples

in

close proximity are

nice accomplishments

if our furry friends want something to

chomp on

III

Placed on a blanket

its easy to see

cuddly and furry teddies in their

natural habitat….sharing a spot with

insects and birds, enjoying the sweet stuff

collected

Olive Green

Olives : Created from Bing Stockart by Inky.

Out in the summer sun

Living it up on Grecian shores

It’s like you were made, for the mezze

Vine Leaves and Feta Cheese

Even the tomatoes seem juicier when you’re around

Gem of a fruit of the vine

Roasted lamb seems to like you

Even served as a stuffing

Enjoyed more now – in jars and in pastes but

Never forget – how tasty you are off the vine

Dining on the move

Salford (via Manchester Piccadilly) 15th June 2020

#fffc

Don’t go off the rails

it’s an experience to be enjoyed

notable scenes and brilliant landscapes

in combination with some fantastic food

normally, your food wouldn’t come with such great views

gastronomic delights with fantastic scenery

Deliciosa!

#cyw #Macandcheese

Maybe its the twirly pasta i like so much

Allied with the cheese (and occasional onion) that

covers it all over

Could it be the hidden elements – like

Ham, or could it be the variety of cheese you put in

Everything from Emmantal to good old Cheddar

Each different cheese has a taste of its own, giving

something to the dish –

Even Blue cheese – is tasty to more reserved tastes

#Discover Prompts #Food #Dish

6th April 2020

While i was busy sketching away

in the kitchen, dad was busy

zipping around with tomatoes and beef

and carrots and onion, creating a wonderful dish, based

round the pasta shells that were

dancing away in boiling water, and a little olive oil
