Challenge 30 – No10

Food…..or should I say Foooood!

I could be some time with this particular part of the challenge !(sic)

I mean where to begin – I’m a bit of a foodie. I enjoy my food – not just the meats but the pasta and vegetables as well. Christmas time sees a smorgasbord of delights, from Spiced Ham to cheesy pasta bakes – not forgetting of course Christmas pudding and Battenburg Cake

My Nephews are partial to a bit of Jelly and custard at Christmas, and for the adults aside from the Christmas pud, there’s usually the Content for a trifle on the go. But this year they helped make something really special – a tray of gingerbread men…now I don’t know if any of them escaped the Christmas table but one or two of them definitely did a disappearing act…

Countdown to Christmas

Tuesday 11th December

A little treat, hides behind the

Doors of the advent calendar

Veiled behind some cardboard and foil

Each door has something tasty behind it

Noting the days passing

Towards Christmas Day

Bag O’Sweets

Open up your bag and round

a quarter of sweets for half a pound a drumstick lolly that’s hard to beat lemon drops for a special treat chocolate footballs and fizzy drops the magic candy that fizzes and pops cola bottles and sherbet tubes candied shrimps and pineapple cubes Now , don’t eat them all now, they’re a treat, we agree but eat them all and you wont eat the fish and chips for your tea!

They’re the bits of your favourite chocolate bars

that didn’t quite make it past quality control

chocolate covered clumped raisins

meet up with lumps of honeycomb

and those dolly mixtures, that shot past the bag

but didn’t hit the factory floor

producing a chocolate surprise – white or brown

sold in bags in each and every town

no search for perfection here – its sold at cost price

but kids they go for it – it tastes just as nice!

Banana Split

Flavorful

Bananasplit

Served up in a glass bowl

Wonderful fruit combines with frosty ice cream

Everyone smiling as the bananas are

Enveloped by the Ice cold tastes of strawberry and chocolate and cream

Together – as they melt and mingle – they make a heavenly delight

A Meagre Portion 🙂

Perhaps its time to watch the waistline

On the whole, its a terrible shame

Rounding on the pounds, in the way that you do

Today should be a celebration –

Its your Birthday!

Of course you can enjoy your birthday tea

Now – One Slice or Two ?

Born from a pod of red, a little white bean

Roasted till it changes colour – its liquid form

Out of the pod, is lovely in a cup – but its

When set in a mould and kept in a fridge do

Numbers of fans line up to collect its creation
