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

Really – eating some things just taken out of the ground ?

Avoid doing it at all cost…even carrots need a

Wash before you start eating them

Reality is – not cooking them – keeps the nutrients

And also the Vitamins and Minerals

While they might taste nicer cooked – they’re better this way

Root Vegetables, need a little preparation

And fruit from the tree can just be picked while ripe

While meat and fish – need some attention from the chef

Sweet supper

#Food #Sandwich #Hazelnut #Chocolate #Spread #Supper

Sat in the kitchen – pondering

What to have to satisfy my inner pooh bear

End of the cupboard – the bread bin

End of the corner cupboard – the provisions store

Taking the last of the hazelnut spread tween two pieces of wholemeal – delicious!

Authentic

Food

Something to note when you next go into the supermarket

that durum wheat spaghetti you picked

off the shelf for a really cheap price

probably has a more local flavour than Milan or Turin

Although they’ve stuck to recipe –

noted chefs will tell you – the product hasn’t seen hair of a

Dock or airport in Italy – it’s been made right here.

Locating where its been made

of course – is a bit difficult – ingredients printed

on the label of the packet in very fine print

keep looking – and you might spot – Made in the UK.

Atomic Tangerine

Food, Fruit, Poetry

#CYW #Atomictangerine

Atomic Tangerine Rose created by inky in Photoshop elements


As they shook up the bottle of fizzy fruit juice

A fantastic reaction began

Bubbles rose up to the top of the bottle

Bursting to escape

Crazy idea – of the kids – was releasing the bottles

Cap – with the addition of air – reaction was complete

Destination for the neon orange liquid – No one knew – they all

Dived for cover – as fizzy orange rain fell

Expectation – the vegetable patch

End result – over Grandpa’s prize white roses



Asparagus

#CYW #Coloryourworld #Asparagus

A piece by inky with a little bit of art…..

popping up out of the ground…..(created by Inky from a Wikipedia image)


The woody stalk

popped up from the earthy soil

and began a race


Seven other green spears

headed headlong to the sun

as the flowers watched


Prize to the Victor?

they’re Basted in Butter,

On Silver Salvers



Double

Chocolate, Food, Sweets

#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
