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!

Choices

#Socs #Choices

Choices you make, can form you later on down the line

How you make them is down to you

Of course, there are many paths to travel, to where you want to go

It’s a decision you have to make…..

Cold or Hot, Coast – Countryside – or City

Even eating, can give you pause for thought

Should you have golden syrup or chocolate sauce on your pancakes ?

Painting - Sausages on a Grill

Best Beef Sausages

Are happily sizzling over

Roasting hots coals

Beefburgers drip hot fat in

Expectation of sizzling onions

Currently cooking on a skillet, while

Up on the far table – next to the sesame seeded buns

Every kind of sauce and relish imaginable – they’ve even got Curry!

Authentic

Something to note when you next go into the supermarket

that durum wheat spaghetti you picked

off the shelf for a really cheap price

probably has a more local flavour than Milan or Turin

Although they’ve stuck to recipe –

noted chefs will tell you – the product hasn’t seen hair of a

Dock or airport in Italy – it’s been made right here.

Locating where its been made

of course – is a bit difficult – ingredients printed

on the label of the packet in very fine print

keep looking – and you might spot – Made in the UK.

Tomato

Together on the vine they grow

Over time they develop

Making a change from green to yellow or red

As the colour changes so does flavour and sweetness

They can be eaten hot or cold, in soups, fried or grilled

Or cooked down and used in a pasta dish, or salad

Food Fruit Treat

Trace of a strawberry

Salford, 31st May 2017

Trace

 

The cheesecake didn’t last that long

its remnants lying on the bottom of the crystal glass tray

shortcake digestive and chocolate crumbs

combine with the faintest of pink swirls

created as the strawberry sauce

dripped down onto the glass

zingy! (Sweet n sour)

Zing!

i don’t know what it is…

but theres summat in that there chicken and rice

that gives it a special kind of Zing

with each mouthful , senses bring the dish to life

aromas, sweet, peppery and sour

drift up the nose as if to say. I m so Zesty

aromas of spice chicken, pepper and pineapple

tickle the tastebuds as spoon delivers each tasty mouthful

waking them up with a message from the dish

I’m So Zingy, enjoy!

Over the Coals

several sausages
sizzle in the Noonday Sun
awaiting a bap

Hamburgers announce
readiness with aroma
as the coals they glow

Seasonings ? Brown or Red
Little people line up
in Anticipation

and over the grill
the most important question
onions or pickles?

Formation

Tomato (BF Kirkham 2012)

Oh Happy and Humble tomato!

In your youth you joined the ranks

of the horticultural army

labouring on your leaves

in the summer sun

Rewards a plenty

as the best recruits are picked

for display in a culinary tattoo

in a Salad or Pasta dish

Numbers in your ranks depleted

but new recruits appear

ready for a new assault

at the summers blue sky
