Banana

An acrostic on one of my favourite fruits

These wonderful fruits – start off green

as they make their long journey to my fruit bowl

kept in cold storage and delivered by boat

exiting one set of islands for another and

navigating their way to the nearest store

The secret is to make sure, the fruit

ripens at the right time

as although its very sweet to eat – its

not appealing to young eyes if they’ve turned more than yellow

so into the frosty vans they travel

paying attention to the temperature

only when the time is right will they

reappear on the shop front

to be bought by the customer

excitable little minds asking

dad or mum to put them in the shopping basket

ending up tween two slices of wholemeal or

accompanied by some nice vanilla ice cream

there’s many ways a banana can be enjoyed

even cooked in a pan and served up with a

nicely made butterscotch sauce

A sweet sounding prompt from the inkwell

Hi Folks

Inky back with another photographic delight from the inkwell.

all sorts of candy treats….from milk chocolate bears to candy bananas……

Yes. it is the last day of lent…and yes it has been a pain knowing just where i’d stashed all that yummy stuff away till now

However , Given the odd sunday allowance and my birthday tea –

i reckon i’ve done rather well from abstaining from the sweet stuff,

there is of course one thing that re-emerged on my birthday

And its not being opened till Bank Holiday Monday 🙂

As its easter – and im doing Napowrimo – here’s a little something sweet inspired by Matthew Tomlinson’s sweet shop at Salford’s Lark Hill Place

It’s called Pick and Mix

Open up your bag, and round
your choice of sweets for just a pound
a choice of sweets, is hard to choose
with more than just the penny chews.

Some candied shrimps, some lemon drops
chocolate footballs, fizzy pops
Bonbons of strawberry, cola cubes
Dolly mixtures and sherbet in tubes

Candy lollies in different flavours,
Fruit sherbet drops with tastes to savour
lemon pastilles, and aniseed balls
and space dust that’s fizzy to not one kid but all

Chocolate cups, a favourite for me
were usually the thing to be eaten wi’ glee
But don’t eat them all now, or else there won’t be
any room left in your tummy for tea!

Breakfast

Salford, 7th April 2020

#Food #Morning #Breakfast #Napowrimo

A prompt from Writerswrite.co.za – cheers to the promptuarium for providing the list of prompts

Best meal of the day, some people call it….

Ripe tasty bananas slapped between two pieces of buttered bread, or

Egg, boiled and salted, and served up with bread soldiers

A hearty breakfast – they say, is fit for a

King….Bacon, Eggs, sausage, tomatoes….

French toast is an alternative if you don’t like chasing your food

As are cereals….but don’t forget toast and

Strawberry jam….its a crowd pleaser

That’ll please any fussy eater (or cheese if they don’t like the sweet stuff)

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!

Yummy Fruit!

Satisfaction

A response to the Daily post Weekly Photo Challenge

A Tangerine for Elevenses

When they are around, when i’m heading for BASIC I always take a Tangerine (or two)with me for the break period during the photography class.  I like fruit, but Tangerines more, because of the way they fit in the hand and are easy to Peel!

They are also less messy than another of my Favourites , Oranges…(see below)

Three of my Favourite Fruits

I like oranges, particularly the juice.  But also sliced up and served with a dash of sugar.

Apples are great any time of the year, but if I had to pick a favourite I prefer green to red

When the greengrocer can get them, I also enjoy Kiwi fruit – you cant eat the skin but this fuzzy haired fruit has a really lovely taste

They say you should have five a day – but the fruit is nice any time of the day.bananaAnother fruit I enjoy are Bananas.  Any time of the Day.  either as part of Breakfast, or as a pudding after lunch or tea….Normally seen eaten by me tween two slices of Warburton’s Wholemeal – with or without the addition of chocolate spread 🙂

Also nice covered in custard, or in a cake – or a mix of the two 🙂 Apologies for the last pic not being here – I scoffed the evidence (Hee Hee!)

Green-Yellow

#Coloryourworld #CYW #Green-Yellow

The painter mixed up his colours

a little too much in the mixing palette

as the citrus in the bowl

seemed confused in the final act…

 

Those bananas look like they’ve been picked too early

and are those lemons or limes ?

a confusing picture from the artist

to which watching you’ll spend some time

 

But the green – yellow colouring is perfect

to the greengrocer picking the fruit

he’s picked fruit under ripe – so there’s no room to gripe

while you wait for the colour to take root.
