Microfiction Monday # 23 Bon Appetit!

Welcome to Microfiction Monday,
where a picture paints 140 characters.
Susan over at Stonyriver hosts Microfiction Monday

Here is this weeks picture and my story to go with it. Bon Appetit !

No you can't carry my preserves young man,
I won the Cooking with Julia contest a few years back
and I'm here to collect.
Rachel who?

The rules are simple,to use Susan's picture she posts then compose a story up to 140 characters including spaces and punctuation.
Then hop on over to Susan's and leave your name. She even has a brilliant character counter to help us count.
As Susan promises, it's fast, it's fiction, it's fun!


  1. Oh, what a hoot, Peggy! I love it! We do have fun don't we? Hope you have a great week, my friend!


  2. Thanks Sylvia;
    You, Bill and I seem to be the first ones ...I like the company that I keep!
    Enjoy your evening .

  3. Now this was funny Peggy, I remember back a long time ago when Saturday Night Live did a Julia Skit, I still chuckle when I think of it.

  4. i think I saw that skit too Bill.
    It's coming back to me slowly, just like most things.
    Have a great evening my friend.

  5. Hear those bits of chuckling coming from the clouds? That's Julia laughing after having read your microfiction take!

  6. Sparkle;

    I loved Julia's laugh, thank you!
    A little more sherry and it was even better!
    Have a great evening Sparkle!

    I'm glad you came by, always enjoy reading your stories and comments.

  8. She does have that deer in the headlights look, huh? And having canned myself, you really DON'T want anyone touching those jars for a while. They might leave fingerprints. ;)

    Fun as always. Set mine up to post itself, so it should do so later tonight.

  9. hope;

    This women is very serious about her jars.
    I tried canning myself too for a couple of years. It was fun but then it wasn't!

  23. Jillien;

  25. jabblog;

    There is always the fine print, that's for sure.

  26. John;

    Particularly a cook that's a bit behind the times.
    Thanks John for your comment.

  27. Kristine;

    I agree, she won, so what if she is 40 years too late.

  29. That's the beauty of canned food, if it's done correctly, it's never too late, right?

    Well done! I chuckled at Rachel who...

  30. Mom

    It's never too late, is right.
    Good point! Have a Happy Day.

  31. rachel who???

  32. Julia fans often aren't Rachel fans, I think! Good one!

  33. Janel;

    I think you're right on that one.
    Thanks for coming by and have a happy dry day. :)

  34. Dr Chandana;

    My characters thoughts exactly.
    Thanks you for your comment and your happy cheer.
    Hope your week ahead is a good one

  35. Very clever! I would be protective of all that hard work, too.

  36. i'm obviously culturally impaired. everybody seems to know (or pretend to) who rachel and julia are and i have no idea (i know, consult google)
    even so, this is funny :)

  37. Barbara;

    I would be protective too.
    Thanks Barbara for stopping by.

  38. Juliana;

    I'm sorry, I only had 140, and I took out the last names.
    Julia Child, famous chef with her own cooking show from the past.( a movie recently called Julia and Julie was about her)
    and Rachel Ray, a famous chef on TV today , has her own show.
    Sorry Juliana!!!

  39. A disappointed young man, by all accounts!

    (Curiously, the word verification is 'slymeni'.

  40. oh my, "slymeni", now that's a word or is it. Sure brings forth an image. Thanks for coming by .
    Have a good week.

  41. mine is up,
    sorry for being late!

  42. peggy, no worries... i was just a little frustrated after a hectic day as there were quite a few entries featuring celebrities known to the rest of the world that i have never heard of in my neck of the woods

  43. Thanks Mama;

    Poor women in my stroy is living in the 50's/60's
    Have a great week!

  44. juliana;

    Hope you have a good evening and see you next week.!
