Ode to a fish slice

Salford, 17th May 2020

The latest challenge to members of the write club

Write a poem on a kitchen utensil……i did mine on a fish slice

Oh noble utensil

Rescuer of the friday night supper

As the chips cook under the lights under the grill

Note as you look after your charge

Guiding it around so its batter armour doesn’t break

Even your fellow utensils on the range know – this takes patience.

And when its time for the king of the cod to

Meet up with his army of

Brilliantly browned potatoes

Every precaution is taken to

Rest his majesty into the protection of his soldiers

Dough

#fowc #Dough

Down in a corner of the kitchen

Over by the bread bin and

Under a tea towel

Great things are happening – the bread’s beginning to prove

Hot ovens await, and butter and jam soon after

Copper

#CYW #Copper

Copper Kettle

Could this element

Out of all of those

Perched on the Periodic Table, be the most useful ?

Pink orange in colour – the metal gives the colour a name

Expect to see pans and pots, formed from it

Resident in kitchens up and down the land

Sweet supper

Salford 19th August 2019

#Food #Sandwich #Hazelnut #Chocolate #Spread #Supper

Sat in the kitchen – pondering

What to have to satisfy my inner pooh bear

End of the cupboard – the bread bin

End of the corner cupboard – the provisions store

Taking the last of the hazelnut spread tween two pieces of wholemeal – delicious!

Spill

#Fowc #Kitchen #Spill

Some say “You can’t cry over spilt milk”

put into context – when that milk

is in a chocolate pudding – and its

landed on the kitchen floor – tears will flow as

lapping it up – instead of you – is your pet pussycat

In the kitchen

Cat Sleeping in a kitchen
the prompt

It’s not easy when you’re little
the obstacle course
of the family house
can be treacherous
at the best of times

And after you wake up from your bed
if your mum isn’t there
you wait for what seems like
another lifetime
for your owner to appear

So while i wait for breakfast
i’ll enjoy another catnap
with my catnip mouse
and ball of wool
in the corner of the kitchen

Light green moments

image.jpgSalford, 8th September 2018

Saturday morning, and I’m pondering the next shade of colour in fees fun foto challenge

lime green

now you say lime green to me, and my artistic thoughts go directly to the fruit bowl

lemon-lime-paint

But limes nowadays seem much darker in tone than what I’d normally associate them with….you would have to split  them open to get the colour you were looking for

But a quick scan of the kitchen cupboards soon reveals this light green colour.   In a packet of custard, or perhaps pasta or even strawberry jelly (strange but true). For the doubters it’s the one in the green packet…

lime jelly ? An acquired taste.

and outside in the garden, the trees have more of a lime green colour to them than the actual shade of a dark green limeimage.jpg

look again… and the outside of the lime is hiding in plain sight…

Messy

Messy

It might look like world war three has arrived in the kitchen

but in reality , a masterpiece has been created

sticky fingers and flour dust on kitchen tops

even more on the cupboard doors and floor

colourful paintwork adorned on the table tops

while the finished article hangs on the refrigerator door

and all created to send out a message

“Happy Mothers Day!”

So as i pondered over some buttered toast , i considered what sort of images i could use

I like butterflies, i like the coloured patterns on their wings

I took this picture of a yellow and black butterfly whilst on holiday in Zakynthos, in Greece.

Sandwich

Sandwich

Scouting out the kitchen cupboards

armed with two ciabatta rolls

navigating your way through the meat in the fridge

dark red salami and piquant spiced ham await

with tempting tomato and cool cucumber

in reach in the salad drawer

coming together with mayo in a

heavenly combination
