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

Salford, 2nd February 2020

Totally encompassed in this little parcel

out of nowhere,

a sausage or two

sends sensations to the tastebuds

totally making them wild with each chew

inquisitive minds wonder – what’s in it that’s so delicious ?

eat up! and you’ll find out!

For many years

Its been the family tradition to bring out the

Nicest crockery and glassware at special occasions

Even candles are displayed alongside the fruitbowl

Something to keep

Those festivals special, especially for the little uns

#Cake #Marzipan #Sweet #Battenburg #Sponge #Pudding #Jam

Built like

a sponge colossus

to many – a

teatime snack to

enjoy just after your chops and vegetables

now how much you have is down to you

but then again – its a question of how much sponge

unless of course, you don’t like Marzipan

reactions to this cake – understandable

“great!  can we have one more slice please ?”

Ode to a sandwich

Salford, 6th August

So, here we are, with a noble invention

A combination of ingredients

Now brought together, with love tween two slices of bread

Daintily paired, meats and vegetables

When required –  sauces or spices

It’s what you might call – a matter of taste

Combining flavour and texture – the eater

Happy in the knowledge, theres not much washing up!

Rush

Rush

rushing about these modern days doesn’t do you good,

until you stop, you won’t notice the harm you do to yourself

stuffing convenience food down whilst doing a hundred other things

heart burn is surely on the way…so take it easy

Snack time

Bite

lunch was two hours ago

and dinner is hours away

the hunger pangs are out of the cage

And they’ve begun to play

So over to the brown bread you go

And forage for a filling or two

When the jars of peanut butter and jam

Located above tonight’s spiced ham

Decide to greet you hello

Just the thing till dad makes tea

And summmat that you’ll eat with glee

Out in the garden without delay

Before running around the garden to play

Eggy Bread

Egg

This ain’t no restaurant “French toast”

it’s made over burning logs

in the country air

Foundation for the morning

Set against a glorious sunrise

and cups of camp tea

Thick crusty bread

absorbed in a lake of

golden runniness

Bacon awaits its partner

as it cooks away

in its fat

Poor Man’s omelette ?

after a night on the hills

it’s the food of kings.

Knives and forks ?

or eaten as a sandwich

only quandry – sauce Red or Brown ?

hanging off the arms of the tree

a sign of things to come

pink and white blooms send a message

to all who walk around it

cheering as the children play

the apples 🍎 are coming on their way!
