Bananamania (V2)

#CYW #Bananamania

Two bunches of Bananas
Two Bunches of Bananas


Bright Yellow, when ripe

A favourite at lunchtime

Noted as a treat for most primates

And eaten, on its own or

Notably tween two slices of bread, or

As a pudding,

Maybe, covered in custard

Apes enjoy them – diced and with the skins on

Now, I like them baked, with a drop of

Ice cream….

Anyway you have them – they’re delicious!




Baked Bananas

By the time you’ve read this

A pair of bananas

Nestled in Tinfoil with Chocolate and Marshmallow will

Arrive on a plate ready for eating

Nice with any sort of ice cream

A favourite pudding after tea!

Memories

#memories

Many a happy time

Enjoyed on the shoreline

Munching away at the contents

Of a well prepared picnic basket

Roast chicken sandwiches and strawberry tarts

Iced buns and banana pudding….

Eaten on a camp blanket, by a rocky shelter

Somewhere where the sardines are safe from the local seagulls

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

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

Banana butties 🥪

Salford, 4th April 2018

built of sterner stuff than your average elevenses

a wonderous mix of fruity goodness

nautically navigated via big boats

and delivered to supermarket shelves and

next, layered tween two slices of buttered bread

an absolute delight, with your afternoon beverage

Banana Split

Flavorful

Bananasplit

Served up in a glass bowl

Wonderful fruit combines with frosty ice cream

Everyone smiling as the bananas are

Enveloped by the Ice cold tastes of strawberry and chocolate and cream

Together – as they melt and mingle – they make a heavenly delight

Hardly the mellowest flower in the garden

your bright colour screams for attention –

a central figure among the reds and the blues

look at me! you cry as people picnic on the green grassy lawn.

surrounded by you and your siblings

they agree as they feast on their banana sandwiches

and drink their old fashioned lemonade

you certainly brighten up the day.

Yellow

#Coloryourworld #Cyw #Yellow

I like the colour yellow,

like the way it appears in a sunny day

or a soft boiled egg at breakfast

so many colours depend on it

we’d have bluegrass on the lawn

and funny coloured sunflowers

and Citrus fruits ? No Orange, Lemon or Lime

So Have a Banana! and Rejoice!

this bright and colourful fellow,

The colour who makes Mustard Bite

yet makes Bananas and Custard Mellow

perhaps you might like to celebrate

with a Lemon meringue pie on your plate.

#Coloryourworld #CYW #Bananamania

By jove! – a prompt on the banana

A bendy little fruit – handy for lunch boxes

Nice between two slices of buttered bread

And even better when combined with

Nuts, ice cream and chocolate sauce to produce

A delight to be served after dinner

Maybe – its the way you tell everyone you’re ready

As you change colour – from Green to Yellow

Not everyone likes it when this happens

In fact – they wait for when you are just turning brown

As a reason, to pull out the frying pan and cook you in batter

(or mash you up to turn you into a cake!)

Acrostic Food Fruit Treat

Bananas

By the time you’ve all read this ditty

Another Banana will have been peeled, sliced and

Nicely sweetened with a little cocoa,

And slapped between two slices of wholemeal bread

Nice to eat, for a breakfast or

Afternoon Treat,  A

Sandwich snack that’s yummy at any time!
