Put That Back!

Frothy, floaty, silky deliciousness.  Îles flottantes. Floating islands. Mounds of lighter-than-air meringue, drizzled with caramel, floating on a sea of custard. Could you resist?

Floating Islands, France

“Dont’ touch it! I want to take a picture.” Himself’s hands retreated slightly.

“Move your hands. They’re in the frame.” Click. And the hands moved back to the dessert.

“Wait! I want to take one more.”

The Ephemeral nature of a yummy dessert is this week’s entry for the photo challenge. Short-lived is one definition of ephemeral. I dispute that. Those French desserts (and dinners and croissants and wine and cheese and baguettes and . . . . ) are still making themselves known around my waistline.

Better late than never, eh? Life seems to be getting in the way of blogging. What’s up with that?

          1. I wire wrap rocks found here in AZ. My sweet, sweet man tumbles them and then I wire wrap them. They make beautiful pendants! I also make stretch bracelets. Thank You for asking.

  1. That is a lovely dessert! I definitely noticed that the cookie had disappeared. Eric would have also eaten the cookie, as well as taken a big scoop out of the dessert. He is so blasted impatient when I’m trying to take food photos! Imagine that!

  2. Oh, that looks so yummy, Carol. But you should see the cakes they produce here in North Cyprus – brilliant and dirt cheap too. Tests my resolve a bit but I never bother buying as Bryan doesn’t eat sweet stuff and while I would like some of the cake, I couldn’t eat all of it and it would break my heart to bin it! btw, my domain name went weird last week, my blog’s now at: http://crazycronecapers.com. C’est la vie, I suppose, but I’ve been tearing my hair out!

        1. You ARE a good girl. What next? 200 days? I didn’t feel any better after dry January so I didn’t see the point. Several million Frenchmen can’t be wrong. 😃 But good for you. Willpower! Or is that girl power?

    1. They were scrumptious. If I close my eyes and imagine it I can feel the meringue fizzing on my tongue as it collapses to nothing. I can also remember laying awake thinking, ‘I wish I hadn’t eaten so much!’


  3. DEFINITELY know that feeling of life getting in the way of blogging lately! I suppose, in a way, it’s a good thing, but I miss the blogging none the less.


    1. I was thinking that as I wrote those words. Not that you speak to your husband like that. But that mine must be a saint He did rebel and nick that biscuit when I wasn’t looking. I only discovered the theft when I ‘developed’ the pictures!
