Root

#fowc #root

Root Vegetable (Parsnip) , (P) by inky from stock art

the source of the plant

grown from the seed

fed from the soil

Out of Sight

Unseen by most

till dug by the gardener

keeping those flowers

in perfect bloom

all the way to autumn

Special roots – Cleaned

and cooked in the oven

are tasty in stews

Edible Garnish

for the Sunday Roast,

sweet, juicy, tasty

Bubble and Squeak

Salford, 29th December 2017

I knew it was coming – the creation of a masterpiece.

something from the remains of the Christmas feast – to warm everybody up

chef using concoctions to heighten the flavour of the dish

in first went the potatoes (roast and boiled), and then the onion – accompanied by a drop of oil.

then went the parnsip, turnip and swede.  followed by the carrots

the meat from the leftovers cubed and joined in the heat by a stock cube

and as you listened to the pan – the contents started to bubble

half way there – and with the turn of the veg – it started to speak

squeaking away with a sizzle
