Delight

Dreamy, light and fluffy

enjoyed by young and old alike

luscious strawberries held in a moment

it’ll be wolfed down by all

captured in the glass as it is

it’s not any old mousse – and

of course – those at the table will ask “Any more?”

usually, its chef’s privilage to go at the mixing bowl – but

someone will be re-using it to make seconds – or sharing….

Peach

Autumn Red Peaches (Image by B.F Kirkham)

Picked from the trees in the hills of Asia

each fruit furry to the touch

and juicy with every bite – just watch out for the stone in the middle

can be eaten on its own, or with custard or cream

hot out of the oven – its wonderful in a pie or a flan

Something to look forward to

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!

Chestnut

6th November 2019

Coming from two trees that hold its name

Horse and Sweet varieties exist

Each Autumn kids can be found playing games with conkers

Sweet fare created from the conkers sibling

Tartlets and pies and they’re even used at the Christmas table

Note however – you can’t eat the conker

Unless of course – you happen to be a squirrel

Though its easier if you find one – to plant it for a new tree.

Bananamania (V2)

#CYW #Bananamania

Two bunches of Bananas
Two Bunches of Bananas


Bright Yellow, when ripe

A favourite at lunchtime

Noted as a treat for most primates

And eaten, on its own or

Notably tween two slices of bread, or

As a pudding,

Maybe, covered in custard

Apes enjoy them – diced and with the skins on

Now, I like them baked, with a drop of

Ice cream….

Anyway you have them – they’re delicious!




Baked Bananas

By the time you’ve read this

A pair of bananas

Nestled in Tinfoil with Chocolate and Marshmallow will

Arrive on a plate ready for eating

Nice with any sort of ice cream

A favourite pudding after tea!

Double

#FOWC #Double

a sweet tasting response from inky to fandango’s latest one word challenge

Not your normal after dinner treat

it’s got two of everything, vanilla scoops, chocolate scoops, brownies, the lot

covered in drizzles of sweet chocolate syrup

even the wafer’s got a dash of cocoa running through it

pudding – a nice light one after that large dinner

unless you really fancy jam roly poly, swimming in custard

decisions , decisions
