Delicious March6 challenge

Today’s challenge is to think delicious.  Being a literal-minded old woman, I started drooling, and all that came to mind was a list of food .

Glorious Food

Chocolate, truffles, anything chocolaty – except milk chocolate
Fish, smoked salmon, scallops in Pernod – anything fishy except whelks
Jersey mids, chips, roast potatoes and Lyonnaise –  anything veggie except Swede
Cheese,  most,  on toast, in macaroni, on crackers, new bread or by itself
Roasting meat and barbecues, butter, cream,  and apple pie:
Is it any wonder that I’m round?


means to give delight
food makes everyone happy
so many pleasures

A kiss, a cuddle
wonder at a starry sky
a sparkling morning

    Swede’s not all bad – makes a good soup. Swedes and Turnips also mean different things depending on where you come from in the UK.
    From the daughter who would only eat peas and now eats most vegetables apart from raw celery!

    lolz ..

    The haikus were sweet as much as delicious 😉

    Yum, Viv … you sent me to google to learn about “jersey mids” and “swedes”; and you are sending me to my kitchen to hunt for a snack! … de·li·cious  [dih-lish-uhs]! ~becca

    The first poem is, well, delicious! Making me hungry 🙂

    I believe you covered every delicious there is in penning a delicious poem. I apparently led a sheltered life. You write of many things I’ve never experenced. It’s to be expected. When they asked if I wanted to be a gromet, I thought they said “Good day,” and tipped my hat.

      Um! There’s an interesting distinction between the two French words `gourmet` – lover of good food – and `gourmand` – greedy b….r. Gromet is a new one on me!

    Hi! nice to visit your blog for the first time. I am definitely a food person, too, and loved your poems. Stop by for bread hot from the oven and fresh, Brazilian coffee! Hugs, pat


    • vivinfrance says:

      Bienvenue to my blog, Pat – I hope you stick around. Too late for the bread – My bread for the week is already proving, and like a good girl, I’ve even cleaned up the mess. I’m not allowed caffeinated coffee. Shame, but thanks for the offer.

    It’s a wonder you’re around!

    My kind of woman 🙂

    Loved the haiku.


  8. earlybird says:

    mmm! I’ll have to have a bigger than usual breakfast now! – liked the ‘except’ s too. I agree about swede. Love the second haiku too.


  9. Ellen says:

    You spoke my language…Now, I want to raid the kitchen, lol ;-D


  10. Cloaked Monk says:
