Oranges

#fruit #Oranges

On bright summer days in spain or Greece, you’ll find these

Ripening nicely on a coastal tree somewhere

As the fruit gets ready to drop – its colour goes

Navigating from Green to Orange…a sign the fruit is

Getting ready for eating

Each nice eaten on their own , with ice cream, or perhaps

Some sugar

Tomato

Together on the vine they grow

Over time they develop

Making a change from green to yellow or red

As the colour changes so does flavour and sweetness

They can be eaten hot or cold, in soups, fried or grilled

Or cooked down and used in a pasta dish, or salad

Brian’s Banana Loaf

Another challenge from WordPress’ 365 Writing Prompts

If a restaurant were to name something after you, what
would it be? Describe it.

(Ok….Dailypost, here goes nothing….!!!)

A pure delight

a combination of sweet bananas

flour , butter eggs and chocolate chips

not forgetting the sugar of course

creamed together the main ingredients

and the star of the show folded through

stuck in a buttered greaseproof tin

and sat in a nice warm oven

Towards end of cooking – cook the custard

Take out of oven – cut a very big slice

and cover in the custard

and simply – enjoy.

Core

Core

Central to most trees fruit

Oranges pears apples or bananas

real safe centres … some soft some hard.  Most

Edible, but the centre and their pips are quite woody

Colourful

Colorful

could it be, the first signs of spring

out of all the signs of Mother Nature that

leap out at us,

of all those signs, green leaves appear and

radiant colours join them in the

form of beautiful blossoms … whilst

underneath them ?

luscious fruits

Branch

Branch

bold parts of the tree that

reach out towards the warm sunshine

aiming high in the sky, fruits or

nuts usually grow off them.  And these

come off the tree when the wood becomes

heavy due to the weight of the fruit

Transformation II

Transformation

in the kitchen

magic is performed

as

yellow butter

white sugar

brown flour

some eggs

and mixed fruit

join together in harmony

with the aid of nutmeg, cinnamon and mixed space

 

popped in the oven

and left to combine

they jump about in the warm

and become solid or baked

forming a most wonderful substance

a cake.

Blackberries

Hidden away among a mountain of leaves

the humble blackberry grows on its branch

biding its time till a meeting awaits

when it drops down into a sugary pool

and parties with its pals

no selfies needed here – they’re all jammin’
