Gravy

#Fowc #Gravy

Good heavens! you’ll cry – its just a sauce, made from

Roasting juices of the meat cooking in the oven –

Actually, they cheer in unison – its much more than that

Vegetable water and various seasonings are mixed in too –

You might even get a flavour of the drink you’re having with your dinner

Christmas

Scrooge

#SoCS #Scrooge

So looking back, How was your Christmas ?

Counting the savings from making the kids wait till Boxing day for their treat

Roast Chicken and less vegetables than usual

Of course, you can defend yourself by saying you’re “Economical” – but

Oranges are meant to be eaten, they’re not just a table decoration.

Got to admit, the mittens you wrapped up might be useful but

Expectation well exceeded reality

In Other Words – Delicious

A five line response to the picture provided for the prompt by Patricia’s Place @ https://patriciasplace.me/

perfectly pampered puddytat

ponders whats for tea

perhaps chicken or pork, or maybe – beef ?

his belief – but today his wish

is a big plate of fish

Battery

#FOWC #Battery

Built from the farmers imagination

A number of hens laid a dozen eggs each

The effort was stored in tiny little cells

Then used to power the cooker that

Each egg was cooked on

Revolutionary! cried the farmer

Yelping as he consumed the hot fried eggs

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

Meat pie

They lined up down the street

For a chance they got one

The kids on the grapevine

Whispering the news

The meat pies are in

The boys from baxendale

Made young men smile

As a waft of meat

Travelled from the chip shop

The meat pies were in

And wrapped up with chips

And a dash of chip shop vinegar

Young lads would follow their dads

Delivering Friday nights tea

The meat pies were in

Chicken Soup (Panacea)

Perhaps you say, it could have magical properties

as the recipe has been passed down the generations for years

notably, it reaches parts your chemists cold cures dont

and it’s tasty to the person that’s eating it

changes to little things like seasonings, are expected through time but

everybody knows the core of chicken, onion and carrot

and mum and dad know – they’ll have empty bowls and seconds asked for

Egg

Egg

every egg laid

at the chicken coop

has his or her day

 

served up as a

side alongside bacon 🥓

or three sausages

 

or combined with veg

to create a quiche lorraine

cooking slowly in oven

 

or whipped up in a

meringue or custard for a

tasty pudding

 

or left to grow up

and hatch 🐣 on the farm, to

make more eggs for tea

The Art of a sandwich

Edible

Some say it begins with

a loaf of bread, nicely sliced – type – to your preference – two slices

next – comes the spread – butter, margarine, salad cream or sandwich spread

dedicated sandwich makers always go for the mayo

when that’s been applied, on goes the salad, lettuce cucumber tomato

If you fancy it, add olives or sweetcorn and then

cover it in your favourite meat before putting the top on

heavenly!!!!

zingy! (Sweet n sour)

Zing!

i don’t know what it is…

but theres summat in that there chicken and rice

that gives it a special kind of Zing

with each mouthful , senses bring the dish to life

aromas, sweet, peppery and sour

drift up the nose as if to say. I m so Zesty

aromas of spice chicken, pepper and pineapple

tickle the tastebuds as spoon delivers each tasty mouthful

waking them up with a message from the dish

I’m So Zingy, enjoy!
