Treat: Weekly Photo Challenge

Treat:  now this was a difficult challenge for me.  I realise that, unlike many people, it’s never occurred to me to take photographs of what I’m about to eat.  I think I’d probably just rather dive straight into it!  A trawl through my archives revealed little, and a trawl through the kitchen cupboards and the fridge revealed nothing to photograph that you could remotely describe as a treat.  So here’s the sum product of my ‘treats’ – and to be honest, I don’t think I sampled either of them… they were made for other people.

christmascakeA Christmas masterpiece, or what passes for a masterpiece in the realms of my culinary arts. 

gingerbreadmenAnother culinary ‘achievement’. At least this batch kept a reasonable resemblance to the original cut-out.  My gingerbread shapes usually morph into a huge unidentifiable mass, despite putting the baking tray in the fridge for half an hour before popping them in the oven.

But here’s a reprise of my favourite ‘treat’ : treating herself and her surroundings to a liberal coating of chocolate before she was ‘treated’ in the bath.

About Sandra

I used to cruise the French waterways with my husband four or five months a year, and wrote fiction and poetry. Now I live on the beautiful Dorset coast, enjoying the luxury of being able to have a cat, cultivating an extensive garden and getting involved in the community. I still write fiction, but only when the spirit moves me - which isn't as often as before. I love animals, F1 motor racing, French bread and my husband, though not necessarily in that order.

    What lovely photographs! And the last one! ❤ 🙂


  2. 🙂 I’m enjoying all the treats, food or otherwise. Travel is really about my favorite treat, right up there with reading. And if I take my Kindle, I can do both. And eat, too. 🙂



  3. I enjoyed the pictures, Sandra, especially the last one. What a little doll. 😀


  4. A priceless treat of the baby. I think your caption is magic!

    Scrumptious! I, too, don’t take very many pictures of what I am about to eat. Only once in a while. That cake is quite amazing, Sandra.

    Yummy cake you can bake dear. The last pic is a treat.


I'd love to hear your views; it reassures me I'm not talking to myself.
