Daily Prompt: Five a Day

by michelle w. on March 30, 2013

You’ve being exiled to a private island, and your captors will only supply you with five foods.

What do you pick?

Minced Beef, Potatoes, Tomatoes, Eggs, Spinach.

I’d be pretty happy with that selection and I am allowing for the provision of at least salt and pepper.

There might be wild herbs growing on this Island too so I could vary the tastes.

I could knock up a variety of meals with those ingredients and the combinations are reasonably well balanced.

Spinach and Potato Frittata

Beef and Spinach Meatballs

Spinach Omelette

Spinach Potato Cakes

Minced Beef and Tomato Stew

I could go on and on but I’m getting hungry now and very much into the idea of being taken to aPrivate Island and given time to cook at my leisure. I could do with the break and I really think I’d eat well too.I’d miss puddings though (unless of course it was a Dessert Island…Groan )  but I’d most likely lose a pound or two.So all in all this captive on an Island lark sounds like a breeze.

I’m in.

    I wasn’t going to participate. But, then I thought, why the hell not. Your ingredients were well thought out. Too well thought out… Have you been thinking about this topic anyway?

      To be honest I wasn’t going to bother either. I had spent the day yesterday feeling very hungover after a surprise visit from some friends Fri night. We drank a lot of Whiskey. I slept most of the day Sat and then couldn’t sleep at night so started scribbling. No thought went into this post whatsoever other than what could I eat that was easy and quick to write about. I then searched for pictures based on ingredients because there was nothing to say really. It’s all just Smoke and Mirrors I’m afraid.
