I Challenge You To…

This week’s challenge is to write a story, limerick or poem on the subject of:

Favourite foods

Last week’s theme was kids. You sent in some super pieces. Some are here, while you’ll find others by following the links:

Keith Channing

Be a love and pass me my slippers
Let’s sit back and breakfast on kippers
After next to no sleep
Black pudding’ll keep
But just keep it away from the nippers.



EDC Writing

Oh no, it’s our daughter and the kids
quick behind the sofa, let’s pretend we’re not in
that damn bell, why do they ring so much
hey, careful there watch what you touch
mind you, while we’re here
what you do mean, you’d rather let the kids in!


The most wanted counsellor
could not convince her kids
to eat breakfast.

One more:

Busy parents
stabilising the future
angry kids
rebelling for attention.

Margaret Welwood

You’re ever so tiny, impossibly cute,
Utterly miniature, very astute.
You know when it’s dinner; you know when it’s snack.
You’d charm the shirt right off a car salesman’s back.
We love you with all of your sweet winning ways,
And we know that we’ll love you for all of our days.
But always remember that God loves you more
From before you were born until forever more.

  2. From Kerala in India’s southwest
    Come the foods that I deem to be best
    A fine fish molee
    (malayali dot me)
    Goes down well, as my friends will attest.

  4. There once was a writer named Hetty
    who did her best work in spaghetti.
    But it hit the fan,
    And she said, “Oh, man!
    Now my novel and notes are confetti.”

    Hi Esther!
    Below is the first poem I have ever written (and the link to the full post and recipe); I could not resist taking your challenge when I saw the subject. Thank you!
