Trickery

Food, Poetry

In response to Fandango’s one word challenge

You knew your nephew wouldn’t eat his greens

every mealtime saw a trip to the bin

but appreciating his happy sweet tooth

you snook something into pudding unseen

and eating with the custard you did grin

as he ate up his carrots with a great big smile

hidden in the sponge cake with sultanas between

and wouldn’t complain about veg – for a while

A tale of an Apple Turnover

This is a bit of a wonder

Undeniable – the baker is a bit of a marvel

Ripe apples transformed into a take home delight

Nice eaten hot with custard

Or cold with a bit of icecream

Varieties exist – some are spiced and others have sultanas in them

Everyone enjoys them as a breaktime treat –

Rows of delicious pastries leave, as fast as they are baked

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

Sat on the serving tray

Each little bit of you oozes festive smells,

Allspice, cinnamon and nutmeg

Salsa away with seasonal fruits, mingling

Over a drop of festive tipple

Note how the alcohol burns away in a wonderful display

And leaves a fruity taste to accompany the

Lovely sultanas, currants, candied peel and cherries

Built like

a sponge colossus

to many – a

teatime snack to

enjoy just after your chops and vegetables

now how much you have is down to you

but then again – its a question of how much sponge

unless of course, you don’t like Marzipan

reactions to this cake – understandable

“great!  can we have one more slice please ?”

Another challenge from WordPress’ 365 Writing Prompts

If a restaurant were to name something after you, what
would it be? Describe it.

(Ok….Dailypost, here goes nothing….!!!)

A pure delight

a combination of sweet bananas

flour , butter eggs and chocolate chips

not forgetting the sugar of course

creamed together the main ingredients

and the star of the show folded through

stuck in a buttered greaseproof tin

and sat in a nice warm oven

Towards end of cooking – cook the custard

Take out of oven – cut a very big slice

and cover in the custard

and simply – enjoy.

Conjure

Conjure

Crafting a dessert, is a bit of a magic trick

Oranges sliced and pineapples diced get laid in a dish, and

Next comes the syrup and then the batter, before the dish is covered in foil

Just before the dish is put in the oven – four holes are made to let out steam

Until its time – for it to be turned upside down and

Royally presented to all sat at the table

Excited little ones ask – can i have custard with mine ?
