Beetroot longing strikes
But then comes forced surrender
To the staining of hands
With apologies to any genuine Haiku writers. Anyone care to join me in a round of kitchen poetry this week? Pictures. Words.From your kitchen. Go on. If I promise not to write any more actual poetry?

I'm tempted. I have a heap of local apples and plums which I find pretty inspiring. We'll see.

Oh please do promise to write more - I love it. The shorter the poem, the harder they are to write I think too - it really is lovely, Ali. x

oooh yum beetroot. I have some killer courgettes, I wonder what rhymes with that! xxx

Empty kitchen, mouldy.
Builders come to pull it down
my heart leaps with joy

I had this beetroot moment only an hour ago! I think you should definitely write more :o)

I tried. Perhaps this is something that requires some practice to get good at. A bit like cooking!

Fun idea, Ali! I took a stab at it, inspired by a recently-delivered-to-my-door, fabulous cookbook and the delicious recipes within. Who knew pancakes could bring on the poetry?

I'm all for it. I just made our first real pie and that deserves a bit of poetry, maybe? Only if your write a little more poetry please. :)

i'm no poet, but do enjoy yours! And can offer what is, perhaps, the world's shortest recipe for the gorgeous leaves of your beet root:
Leafy tops, chopped & steamed
a bit o' butter, lemon juice and salt

You have truly inspired me, not so much with the kitchen version haiku...but knitting! Just think of the possibilities! Thank you, thoroughly enjoyed my visit.

We grew beetroot on the allotment this year and I've just cooked it for the very first time, delish! Wore rubber gloves specially bought for peeling it to avoid stained hands though.

I just laughed out loud at this one, as I looked down at my stained fingernails!
