Salford, 2nd February 2020

Totally encompassed in this little parcel

out of nowhere,

a sausage or two

sends sensations to the tastebuds

totally making them wild with each chew

inquisitive minds wonder – what’s in it that’s so delicious ?

eat up! and you’ll find out!

The Art of a sandwich

Edible

Some say it begins with

a loaf of bread, nicely sliced – type – to your preference – two slices

next – comes the spread – butter, margarine, salad cream or sandwich spread

dedicated sandwich makers always go for the mayo

when that’s been applied, on goes the salad, lettuce cucumber tomato

If you fancy it, add olives or sweetcorn and then

cover it in your favourite meat before putting the top on

heavenly!!!!

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

Thursday Afternoon 4PM

#Weekendcoffeeshare

Sat in a coffee house of Italian Style

Giving my feet a rest for a while

having traversed the floor of a great gallery

my feet need a rest – and I start to agree

 

I order a late lunch – between two bread rolls

and sit down at table to rest up my soles

and whilst I am waiting – I read a good story

one that is funny and not at all gory

 

And as I wait, the steam it just rises

as barista puts in a cup of surprises

toffee flavour bits in my cocoa of day

a flavour that’s tasty in its own special way

 

But here comes my late lunch – tomatoes and meat

with cheese and salami – a real special treat

and as I tuck in, I’ve enjoyed my day

Sandwich brightening the weather, despite all the grey.

The construction of a sandwich

In response to the prompt
Layers

I’ll freely admit – I used to love going into a certain sandwich shop at Lunchtime.

The ladies and gents were like craftsmen – creating a sandwich, the way I wanted it and with the toppings I desired.

Six kinds of bread – Two Italian style, one with herbs

Would I like it Toasted, Warm, or as is…warming the Italian bread with herbs brought out the flavour so I went with that

then came the Salad – a smorgasbord of salad….Onion, Peppers, Sweetcorn, Olives – not forgetting the regular stuff you would find on your average salad.  For me, Tomatoes and Cucumber was the order of the day, and perhaps sweetcorn and olives if I felt the need

then came the actual meats, Salami, Ham, Pepperoni, or maybe Chicken Teriyaki Italian meatballs?  Go Veggie – you got the smorgasbord with the Veggie Deluxe.

Not Veggie – but didn’t want meat – Tuna was on the menu.

Want sauce – everything from chilli sauce to Marinara if you wanted it

and then to top it all off – “would you like cheese with that”?
