#SoCS March 6, 2021 – Butter

Linda’s #SoCS challenge:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is β€œbutter.” Use it as a noun, use it as a verb, use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

You know, this is really cruel, Linda!

I aam on a diet, and one thing I am missing is huge hunks of fresh bread, smothered with delicious butter and jam, or hot toast, a hot cross bun, with a huge knob of butter melting over its toasty surface…

Seriously, stop it.

I’m going to lose my willpower, otherwise.

I said stop it!

March 4: Flash Fiction Challenge – Diet Spuds

Charli’s Carrot Ranch 99-word Flash Fiction prompt!

March 4, 2021, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story that includes sweet potatoes. It can be part of a recipe, meal, or used as a nickname. Where do sweet potatoes take you? The grocery store? The garden? Mars? Go where the prompt leads!

Diet Spuds

Sue discovered sweet potatoes on her diet. Her slimming group leader insisted they were better for her than her usual baked spuds.

She gingerly took a knife and sliced open the elongated root vegetable to reveal the flesh’s brilliant orange hue.

Well, this would, at least, bring a little colour to her dull meals.

A sweetness lingered in the air.

She ground a little pepper and added a pinch of salt.

The usual knob of butter called to her from the butter dish, but she ignored it, added a little low-calorie cheese, and took a tentative bite.

Not bad.

Life gives you lemons
Sometimes you just can't avoid
What you gonna do?
You're gonna atake those lemons
And make the BEST lemonade!

Slowly buds unfurl
