ABC -- F!

ABC is hosted each week by Mrs. Denise Nesbitt and her team. It's a whole new way to learn your ABC's and it's fun!! Click on the icon, sign in and show how much you know! And the letter for the is --- F

F is for delicious Fish tacos!



The two
on the outside
so wrapped up
in themselves;

Shredded peppers
carrot slivers
streaks of onion
falling over each other
in delight
all whispering and gossiping
nestled amidst
cilantroed fish,
emerging from
a lashing of sauce.......

The middle one,
a bit older,
shrugs,
shoulder wide open.
The peppers
and onions,
and carrots,
wait;
Patience !
Life is more spicy
when enjoyed with
a green sauce
and a squeeze
of lemon...

(I've never had fish tacos; only had the vegetarian variety. But these ones looked like they had a mind of their own....I've approximated the ingredients..)

Fish tacos is one of my favorite things to eat. I have to admit I have never read such a beautiful ode to a taco before.

Fabulous flowers, just waiting for them to appear now. Love your family fun on the ferry, you look wonderfully happy. Fish tacos never heard of, I'm on the look out now.

You had lots of good F's, but your fish tacos made me hungry, and so I coulnd't concentrate on the flowers and flamingos.

I definitely would eat fish tacos! Need more fish in the diet.
