Pure Pleasure !! Le Ice-cream……………..


tangy

ICE-CREAM ! ICE-CREAM ! ICE-CREAM!!

O Lord !! This is something I die for.

Whenever I wish to get indulged in pure pleasure I opt for ice-cream. Ice-cream is something I am madly in love with. Whatever be the taste, flavour, shape I crave for all of them.

I have tasted a variety of ice-cream till date but the picture of the ice-cream I have shared above is one of the yummiest amongst them. This ice-cream was suggested to me by my husband from the famous ice-cream brand parlor named HAAGEN-DAZS (an American brand). Though initially I was reluctant to have it but later I went on saying thanks to him for introducing me to such great taste. This particular ice-cream was of raspberry flavour which had an unique tangy taste.. The ice-cream was served with chocolate sauce which was a perfect compliment to it.

This ice-cream still takes takes me to the “ice-cream lala land” and I am again looking forward to taste it soon.

If you have Haagen-dazs parlor near you then do go and grab it asap !!

Enjoy!!

Designer Cuisine !!

I simply love this picture because this shows how beautifully a cuisine can be served. Art is not just bounded in papers, it can be displayed even on food platters. This rose made from beet root really attracted me while I went for dinner with parents in an awesome restaurant in Kolkata, India… These well served food not only gives joy to your stomach but gives a treat to your eyes too 🙂

Enjoy the picture !!!

P.s the chicken beside is tooooooooooooo tasty 😀

A lot can happen over Coffee !


Coffee , a brewed beverage from roasted or baked seeds of a shrub of genus COFFEA

It is really just a beverage?? I wonder what we would have been if coffee was not invented by mankind..

When we are in love we share coffee, when we are awake for late night studies we drink coffee, when we are upset we drink coffee, when we are in office we drink coffee, when we want to relax we drink coffee, shopping is incomplete without coffee, a chilled wintry morning becomes gloomy without coffee, a rainy day becomes more romantic with coffee and lots more..

So is coffee just a drink ??

Coffee whether hot or cold is a love to many of us…… I enjoyed a warm cup of coffee just sometime back whose pic I clicked to share with you all and make your taste bud crave for it now 😀
