Sunday Lunch

Salford Museum and Art Gallery (Next to Salford University)

Call it cultured if you will

A meal time of summat tasty served up at

The local museum and art gallery

Head and mind kept occupied by

Exhibits shown and

Displayed around the workspace

Roast or Corned beef, Maybe Ham

And a drop of Tea or coffee to wash it down

Likelyhood is, you might even have one of those buns under the cloche!

(Now if readers look down the side, you’ll see the soul was fed earlier)

Hot Chocolate

In response to the prompt

Pick Your Potion

Brown Gold.

That’s what it is, hot steaming liquid gold.

A perfect thing on a cold, frosty winters morning

A cup of warming hot chocolate.

It waft’s the aroma of something pleasing on a frosty day and warms up the fingers in the surroundings of a motorway service station.

Normally drunk by the cappuccino set as an alternative to their high caffeine fix, the coffee houses up and down the motorways have seen fit to get into selling it…and the Makers of the refined coffee cant wait to sell it

What flavour would you like ?- the barista asks

(Barista – supposedly the guy who blended the coffee or chocolate mix – but on this occasion – the guy who’s operating the fancy machine behind the counter)

Mint, Orange, Blackforest (A special for Christmas) or  Peppermint

I plump for Peppermint – pay the man behind the counter and sit down with my brew and a gingerbread man, as the vapours of chocolate and Peppermint travel through the air towards my nose

And as the mug transports the Brown Gold to my mouth, the ice begins to thaw – a perfect antidote to a winters morning.
