Simmering

Something sensational was coming from the Kitchen

in seconds the waft of chicken , ham and vegetables

made its way through the ground floor and

moseyed upstairs to tell my senses

everybody – grab your eating irons – its ready

rendezvousing with crusty bread and salt and pepper

in a combination you will

never forget – a total culinary triumph

got to warn you though – its just out of the pan…watch the bubbles

Chicken Soup

#octpowrimo #soup #chicken

Its been cooking on the hob for a while now

blue gas flames keeping the cooking going

while the flavours mingle and merge

the star of the show has been bathing in a warm bath

while her co-stars have been cooking in the broth

carrots and onions, parsnip and turnip

together with the occasional green

regional variations see peppers and tomatoes

and perhaps the addition of garlic

(just don’t tell the seniors – that ain’t “northern”)

pearl barley or noodles give it bulk

served up in a bowl with warm crusty bread

a definite antidote to the retreating mercury

and the weather outside

Gyros

Eccles, 22nd September 2021

Gyros

Greek style wraps

you can enjoy any place – any time

running through the Lamb chicken or veg

over everything – herbs and spices and

some of the Greek Tsatziki

(Delicious!)

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
