Tonight’s tea

Cornish pasty and salad

Tea, (early evening meal). Cornish pasty. Mixed salad of lettuce, tomato, cucumber, onion, sliced mushroom, baby bell peppers and a bit of dijon mustard and light mayonnaise. On a Portmeirion dinner plate. I think it was a good balance of food groups. Trying to cut down on carbohydrates and fats a bit. Colour on a plate.

Today’s prompt

Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt. It was meant to be a plate of food but I’d eaten it before I remembered! The depicts a Magnolia plant with butterflies on the plate made at Portmeirion pottery. I drew it using a black drawing pencil on cartridge paper in my little sketchbook. We had a salad and quiche. With whole grain mustard. Tasty.

Who’d think, cherries in coleslaw.

With such a large crop,

bowls full to the top,

I tried-

To decide-

what to do with them?

Each cherry on a stem!

Salad with cherries

fills my belly.

Coleslaw with cabbage

with cherries added.

Now I’ll make jelly

with added cherry,

summer fruit,

so much loot.

Birds are merry

They have cheery

Cherries too!
