Do i like mustard?

#socs #closeeyesandpoint

now here’s something for a Saturday Afternoon

apparently there’s more mustard in the world than custard

\

i dont mind if its on a burger – or hidden away in some sauce or dish, but it surprised me to find out (thanks to the elves @ QI) that i’d been eating variants of mustard i hadn’t even realised

Or served up with my Sunday Roast (Carrot , Turnip, Broccoli, Sprouts)

It might explain my hesitancy to eating the green stuff bar the peas when i was little…

but now i eat them all the time (and that includes Salad Cream as a Condiment)

As for Custard ? Both are nice (egg/vanilla) – but i’ll eat them after the Mustards!

Jam Roly Poly

#food #baking #pudding #jam #custard

Egg Sugar Flour and Butter

combine with fruit for something after tea

a little thing that’s fruity and sweet

with a layer that’s simply utter

delicious, flavoursome and buttery

its the fruit covered layer – that gives it a swirl

served up with custard its hard to beat

a childhood favourite – why not give it a whirl ?

Banana mania (Revisited)

#coloryourworld #cyw #fruit #banana #yellow

Born out of a tree

A yellow skinned treat

Nice between two slices of bread

Also appreciated by young uns in a cake of some sort

Note though whether in a cake or not – they’re great with custard

A note of caution – don’t eat the peel – they’re not like apples

Combination

#Fowc #combination

some call it a recipe

others a mixture

several ingredients

coming together in a bowl

to form the perfect pudding

and it isn’t the flour , butter or eggs

that are the star of the show

or even the fruit thats gone in or over it

no – this is a team effort

served up on a serving spoon after the chicken dinner

key question – anyone for custard?

I

Colour of the morning sun

set amongst the blue sky

and patchy white cloud

II

Breakfast calls

in the colour of your boiled egg

circled by toasted soldiers

III

In the garden

the lions of the lawn

greet you with hello

IV

Afternoon treat

tween two slices of bread

or eaten on its own

V

Accompanient

to post – dinner sweetener

perfect with a sponge

Not So Bad

#schooldays #promptuarium

With the current lockdown

the kids are back in school

forget the bug that’s virulent

the doctors overruled

Schooldesks spaced out plenty

while lessons start anew

learning english maths and all

for tests that are a due

And playtime the kids are spaced out

in their own little spots and squares

its not much fun playing on your own

but at least you’re in the fresh air

But the signs of good things a coming

can be smelt coming down from the hall

the smell of custard with pudding

has made its way through the classroom wall

Bring on the puddings!

#FDDA #Sweet #Sponge #Puddings

I do like a sponge pudding

coming to life in the oven

covered in fruity delights

sweet soft pillows of loveliness

and that’s before you get to the custard!

Something to look forward to

#Baking #food #pie #apple #pudding #writeclub

Salford, 10th June 2020

The preparation seemed endless

the pie dish lined with the finest pastry

rolled out , sugared and buttered

now sat there waiting for the filling

The Smell of Bubbling Bramley apples

merging together with sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon

attracts the local feathered residents

looking longingly past the window glass

dropped into a sweetened parcel

and sealed with a spiced sugared lid

finally toasted together in the oven

served up after the fish and chips

and the perfect accompaniment for it

is spluttering away on a hob

as the smell of fresh vanilla custard

meets with warm apple pie – just the job!

Banana

Salford 24th April 2020

#Napowrimo #Napowrimo.net #Banana #Fruit

An acrostic on one of my favourite fruits

These wonderful fruits – start off green

as they make their long journey to my fruit bowl

kept in cold storage and delivered by boat

exiting one set of islands for another and

navigating their way to the nearest store

The secret is to make sure, the fruit

ripens at the right time

as although its very sweet to eat – its

not appealing to young eyes if they’ve turned more than yellow

so into the frosty vans they travel

paying attention to the temperature

only when the time is right will they

reappear on the shop front

to be bought by the customer

excitable little minds asking

dad or mum to put them in the shopping basket

ending up tween two slices of wholemeal or

accompanied by some nice vanilla ice cream

there’s many ways a banana can be enjoyed

even cooked in a pan and served up with a

nicely made butterscotch sauce

Threat

#Fowc #Threat

The words were clear and definite

Hot on the plate – something really horrible

Reality ? If it wasn’t eaten up

Each child knew – they wouldn’t see the

Apple pie with custard

That was delivered after dinner
