In my life … is there loads of very temporary things that I love and like: drinks, cakes, desserts and ice cream – is some of them.
With that I mean they don’t last very long, but they are all simple pleasures … and give me loads of guilty pleasures (I don’t mind).
I never drink any alcohol home alone .. not even a glass of wine, but I eat loads of ice cream!!!!!!!
Desserts I’m pretty good with … but I DON’T bake!!!!!!
But there are even better things that are permanent and also tough ones.
“Life’s short. Eat dessert first!
(Buffet dessert at Museu Serralves, Porto – June 2017)
“Sometimes too much to drink is barely enough.”
(A very good mojito at Restaurant LOCAL, Łódź – September 2017)
“I don’t have to tell you I love you.”
I fed you pancakes.
(Apple pancakes that I enjoyed in Warsaw, July 2015)
“Ice-cream is exquisite – what a pity it isn’t illegal.”
(Mega ice cream served at Hort Cafe, Łódź – October 2017)
“Drink because you are happy,
but never because you are miserable.”
(Pink Manhattan at “P.J. Clarke’s on the Hudson” in North Cove Marina, Manhattan/NYC – September 2013)
“I’ve never met a problem a proper cupcake couldn’t fix.”
(Very good looking Chrismas cupcakes, Coffee Company Café – Elite World İstanbul Hotel, Istanbul – December 2015)
“Ice cream is my comfort food.”
(Donauzentrum shopping mall ice cream, Vienna – November 2015)
“Penicillin cures, but wine makes people happy.”
(White wine at my friend’s beautiful roof top terrace, Vienna – August 2014)
“There’s nothing better than cake but more cake.”
Harry S. Truman
(My absolute favorite cake – the Danish potato cake (Kartoffelkage) in good delicous company – Lagerkagehuset, Copenhagen – July 2013)
Teehee! Go for those pleasures!
You’re my kind of girl. Sue!
….and I drink a small glass of wine alone sometimes!!
Good for you … I wish I could do that too, but it doesn’t taste good. Give me some company and that problem will be sorted. *smile
Well, I prefer company, but I like the taste of wine with my main meal….
Great quotations and photos!
Thank you so much for the visit … and for your lovely comment.
Beautiful photos this week. Food photography isn’t easy and yours is deliciously good!
Allan, a big hearty thank you … I know … food and drinks need some tricks to look good on images, but I have been working as a chef for 35 years and worked with a fantastic food photographer for over 10 years, very fascinating. I’m not really that good .. but sometimes it works for me. I really appreciate your comment.
Food photos are a world unto their own. My wife was in catalog advertising many years ago and the food stylists always fascinated me. You have picked up a lot of good photo habits from your associate.
I was thinking of becoming a food stylist when I tried, but I don’t have the patience. Food have to be raw for photographing, more or less .. that’s why it’s so difficult to get good images of fully cooked meals. My “associate” won the award for the world’s best cookery book last year in China, so I been in a good company. Thank you so much!

Thank you so much for the support.
These are delightful photo and I really love the way you shot the one with the gigantic sundae appearing to be in the cup. Love the music, too. Happy Wednesday.
Janet, thank you so much .. I wanted to make a happy post. It was hard to get a good shot of the ice cream, it was so massive – but no problems for me to eat.
The same to you.
🙂 Oh, my God, dear Wivi!
Only you could pick these mouthwatering-lovely pictures.
Why do I always look at your photos at night? They always make me peckish for something sweet, like a hugs ice cream (and I have none left).
Hope you’re well!?
Many hugs xoxoxo 🙂
Dia, I wish I can give you some of mine … I have enough for two at home. I’m doing okay, but the new medicine for my nerve pain doesn’t work and two big teeth jobs going on … will cost me a couple of arms and legs. When we get old we are getting fragile – old repairs are giving up. *smile
I hope you’re doing okay .. was in looking at our Transatlantic cruise yesterday … for the last of this year they have great discounts. If I hadn’t booked Krakow .. I think I would have gone. Only 850£.
I recognize some of these…and I know of no one who can photograph them as good as you do!
Yes, you have been around for 3 of them … thanks for the nice compliment – all down to practice and loads of luck!
Now you are too modest…!
Not at all … *smile
That raspberry looks good enough to eat, Vivi. 🙂 🙂 Smiling! Not online much because my Internet connection is terrible. No other complaints here though. I have one more week and Lisa arrives on Sunday. Sending hugs and hope you’re taking good care of yourself.
Hi there, I’m glad that you are have a nice time and that you have time left. How is plans going for moving there for good????? Are Lisa coming alone??? Thanks for the hugs … need them badly – because I have toothache again. Now it’s another tooth. When we are getting old .. we are getting very fragile and start falling apart. Big Weekend hug goes back to you. *smile
Living in the moment, Vivi, or trying to. 🙂 🙂 I can’t help but get my worry head on now and again. Early mornings usually, when I can’t get back to sleep. The cooker is broken and getting replacement parts is taking forever but I can use the hob. Lisa and Leo are both coming tomorrow evening so I shall have a meal ready, then we have a couple of days of touristing (no beach 😦 ) till they go home on Wednesday evening. Sending you sunshine and hugs, my falling apart lovely friend. 🙂
You’re so right! Let’s live today. I hope you will get your new cooker before you return to UK and I know you will have a great time … when the youth arrived. Be good to yourself first of all, Girlfriend.
Yesterday I had sort of a clear out amongst my shoe boxes so I could get some new ones in. Took the whole day and I did a pretty good job, but I think I could have been more brutal. *laughing
A warm Sunday hug.
I agree with every photo and every quote Viveka!! Thanks for the gustatory tour!
Thank you, Tina …. for the lovely comment … my pleasure to bring you along. *smile
