Corner View...Sweets.

This weeks Corner View theme is Sweets.. um yeah... this one is kinda 
tricky for me, you see sweets are the devil... they taste awesome and make you 
all satisfied and gooey feeling.. then they stick to you for years and years 
making your hips as wide as a house and your chins multiply. 

So I don't really very often do sweets. 

The girls like cookies now and again, I'm not a big baker, I make some 
pies at Thanksgiving and Christmas. My weakness is ice cream... 
I do like a lovely yummy bowl of ice cream now and again. 
Takes me back to my child hood when we used to go to a cafe in a little
beach town and order me a Knickerbocker Glory!!!! 



Yes folks this is a good old fashioned Knickerbocker Glory and when you're about 
five years old this is HEAVEN in a big fancy glass!!!

So that's my take on sweets....it's not exactly my Corner View here in the States but I feel 
it's still my little Corner View from my inner five year old. 

No hop on over to Spain Daily and check out the other Corner Views... 
I know they'll all be coming up with something fabulous this week!!!

Conny said...

Wow! I must admit that I'd take ice cream any day over a cookie. (I'm not big on sweets either.) I think I eat as much ice cream in winter as in summer. Happy Corner View day.

Honestly I'd rather have wine than ice cream. But if you're going to twist my arm I'll take cake batter ice cream with reeces mixed in :)

Teri said...

Oh, YUM!

Aaaargh! Just after I resolve to go on a diet and go to the gym more, I see your picture of a Knickerbocker Glory!

I used to live for those!

You're in good company, by the way: George Washington was obsessed with ice cream, believe it or not.

that looks so good! I will NOT be looking at any of the others takes on "sweets" because that is way too tempting. I am too weak and love all sweets.
I'm gonna go get some icecream now.

I also have a memory of a special ice cream sundae we had when I was young

heaven in a glass it is when you're five (and when you're nearly 40 but going on 12 deep down :)

jane said...

it´s a work of art!

The Bumbles said...

Um - that would be heaven in a glass when you're 40 years old - never mind 5.

beth said...

YUM...there goes the good food diet I've been on....a trip to dairy queen is needed !

Sweets! The love of my life ( shhh, don't tell my wife ).

Ice cream is my weakness, my achilles heel, my arch enemy.
