Recipes and Writing Prompts - Figs and Fallacious Words

I'm having fun doing a series of blogs that I hope my readers will enjoy. I'll share some of my favorite recipes and devise some original writing prompts. Why not try some of both. Get creative, have some fun, and share your thoughts by leaving a comment. You're also invited to post a short example of how you used the writing prompt in the comment area. My first round of posts will use the Alphabet for inspiration. Grab a friend, tell your classmates, inform your writing class, whatever, GET CREATIVE!

(F) Day  Figs and Fallacious Words


Native to the Middle East and western Asia, it has been sought out and cultivated since ancient times, and is now widely grown throughout the temperate world, both for its fruit and as an ornamental plant.

Recipe: This one is easy and doesn't require a recipe. Just wrap any variety of figs you have with prosciutto or a similar cured meat, secure with a toothpick, and cook on the grill. Cover your grill with foil first to stop the figs from falling through the grates. A couple minutes before you take them off the grill, brush a small amount of molasses across each side.

    Writing Prompt: "Is it really true that God said not to eat from every tree of the Garden?" ~Bible Book of Genesis ~ Satan's words to Eve...

    What a perfect example of fallacious words. Words that are cunning, deceitful, and deluding have caused untold misunderstanding, misery, and murder down through the ages. For this writing exercise we'll focus on just two elements, (1st) devise a single sentence that fits the definition of fallacious words. (2nd) Describe the setting where those words were spoken.
