Debate

Salford 15th February 2020

#Fowc #Debate

During the week, it was the hot topic of conversation

Election ? Europe ? no! none of these

But a culinary conundrum – which sandwich was better

A choice of Sausage, Egg, Bacon, or Cheese

The favourite – an obvious choice – but

Everyone wants their own bite of the butty!

Salford, 2nd February 2020

Totally encompassed in this little parcel

out of nowhere,

a sausage or two

sends sensations to the tastebuds

totally making them wild with each chew

inquisitive minds wonder – what’s in it that’s so delicious ?

eat up! and you’ll find out!

Eggplant

4th January 2020

Everyone our way knows it as an aubergine

grilled and served up with

grated cheese and tomato

purple tinge to its black skin – never known once grilled

leaping to life in any greek dish

and lipsmackingly wonderful on a summers day

note though – best served with oil and herbs

tastes wonderful with a drop of house red

Digestive

Definitely something to go with cheese

In a salad, with tomato and cucumber

Goes great in a picnic or lunch box

Even nicer when covered in dark chocolate

Some say, it’s the daddy of all biscuits

To others, the rich tea aficionados

Its a worthy opponent

Versatile whether with a hot drink, or on a meal plate or

Even in a pudding (like on a cheesecake base)

Hidden chillis

Hiding in plain sight on your pizza

Innocent looking vegetable, scattered among the pepperoni

Divided by red onion and tomatoes, that ain’t no sweet pepper!

Devilish kick, and a rise in heat

Encapsulating the tongue

No wonder you’re sweating.

Take me there

Authentic

give me a taste of italy

wi fresh pasta, tomatoes and herbs

make that sauce sing

serve it up with

grated Parmesan and lemon

and juicy green olives

taking me to Napoli or Bologna

without the need of a plane ticket

Mac and cheese

img_0100

#coloryourworld #cyw #macandcheese

in the kitchen, Mr Macaroni was a hardened fellow

living in his glass palace with his friends.

he went for a swim to oblivion

via a bubbling hot pool

his chums came as well

(they thought him a fool)

but waiting for him, and there right on time

was delightful miss cheese, his partner in crime

dancing away in the pan, so heartfelt

they mix together, as Miss cheeses heart, melts
