Gourmand

Glutton for punishment ?

Of course, you could call him that.

Useful to have at any

Restaurant table, he’s the

Main Man on the subject of what to eat

And what to shy away from

Note – however, the expanding waistline

Drop one day – he will

Threat

#Fowc #Threat

The words were clear and definite

Hot on the plate – something really horrible

Reality ? If it wasn’t eaten up

Each child knew – they wouldn’t see the

Apple pie with custard

That was delivered after dinner

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

Raw

#Fowc #Raw

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

Salford 19th August 2019

#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

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.

Layer

#FOWC #Layer #Food

Salford 11th August 2019

Another foodie poem from inky in response to fandango’s latest one word prompt

Lovingly created by the bakery

A coming together of three flavours

Years of expertise – combining pistachio, lemon, and strawberry

Enveloping them in a creamy butter icing

Rich ? depends what your palette says

In response to https://patriciasplace.me/2019/07/24/in-other-words-improvise/

Late night concoction

Brought together from an idea

Leftover pasta brought back to life in a pan

with butter, onions, pesto and carrot

Served up for lunch in a bowl

Spill

#Fowc #Kitchen #Spill

Some say “You can’t cry over spilt milk”

put into context – when that milk

is in a chocolate pudding – and its

landed on the kitchen floor – tears will flow as

lapping it up – instead of you – is your pet pussycat

Atomic Tangerine

#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
