I know, the Weekly Photo Challenge will be coming today, but I have these delicious photos to share with you first,
calorie-free to you, as this is the virtual world of food.

Here’s something we had a few night’s ago: cool grapes, crunchy yellow carrots from the farmers market, elk sausage to die for, Baby Buche from Mackenzie Creamery ( on wheat crackers, soft, sweet dates, and crunchy almonds.


Yesterday, on the way back from a doctor’s appointment (one confirming that Bill is as of now, cancer-free), we stopped at a farmers market we’d spotted on the drive in. We bought a few things but the biggest score was the half-price, plump, gorgeous blackberries.
Since the market was almost over, the berries were on sale and we bought two pints. We used them as a topping later.



When you have food, you need something to drink and today at the thrift store (at 75% off), I found just the right vehicles for my tea, Wedgewood on the left and Helichrysum on the right (both English bone china.) Oddly enough, a china cup makes an enormous difference.


Feel free to stop by. There are plenty of blackberries left and I have lots of tea choices.

    I’m hungry now πŸ™‚

  2. Well now that I am starving …….lovely breakfast !

    • It’s been hot enough that ice cream covered with fruit sounds like a good breakfast. We’ve been enjoying this in the evening while we catch up with the day’s stage of the Tour de France. Either way, delicious!


  3. I’m glad Bill got good news. I think the ice cream with the blackberries would save my life in this heat :o)

    • We’re thrilled with the news, although he’ll be checked regularly forever, just to be sure. As for the ice cream and fruit…it’s particularly good while it’s so hot. So thankful for AC, something not common in Europe.

      Have a great weekend,


      • I agree – the waiting for the results is hard. My dad has his appointment for the check in august. We only have an AC in the car – think that’s an idea too :o)

      • Time for another ride…or a ride to the mall, a place we found while in Provence, often has AC…and is correspondingly crowded during heat waves. And there are always Magnum bars. πŸ™‚

    Wow, those berries are gorgeous!

    • They taste as good as they look. We have one small helping left, but combined with peaches and strawberries, they go a long way. And each one is so large you don’t need too many.


What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
