for the ladies out there


These images have been haunting me lately so I had to create a collage for all the ladies out there. If only these Chanel shoes were mine! And I don't have to remind you of the love I have for long silk curtains ... sigh!

Today, hubby surprised us with a day off from work so we're thinking about driving south to Lake Genval and spend the day relaxing and enjoying the beautiful scenery by the water. But before the road trip we need coffee and croissants.

When we get home I'm giving my gang a taste of the sorbet I made yesterday. Well, because I don't have an ice cream maker (I need one!) I guess my sorbet would be called granita. It looks good in the freezer but not quite as I intended it. Alright, alright, I have a sorbet confession to make: I forgot to add the raw cane sugar to the saucepan with the berries and water. I measured it but forgot to add it! In my defence, I did add the agave nectar. It wasn't until I had puréed everything in the food processor and was preparing it for the freezer that I saw the innocent bowl with the sugar on the kitchen scale. So, I simply put everything to the saucepan again. But this only means I have more experiments to do. By the way, we had a wonderful day in the park yesterday, the muffins tasted oh so good and everyone was happy. Maybe I'll share with you some photos.

Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday!

  1. Oh how gorgeous Lisa! I'm most definitely a lady too so this entire post speaks to me. Love those curtains, flowers make my heart skip a beat and I think I nearly fainted from those gorgeous Chanel shoes. Just heavenly! And please do post photos of your sorbet. It's my favorite summer treat :)
