Have Your Cake


This is one of the painting inside of Dulce the coffee shop from yesterday. I was trying to be strong and was not going to indulge in something sweet but this painting was that one thing that pushed me over the edge. The bread pudding with caramel sauce and whipped cream was delicious.

Do they have mud pie? How I miss that ...

Allison said...

p.s. I indulged like you did yesterday. Hubby has vacation days, so we went to a place called Florida, which while it would put the real thing to shame, looks suspiciously familiar here in Europe. I ordered the biggest thing they had - a banana split. For 16 years I have been thinking, "If I ever see a banana split on the menu again, I'm getting it." So I did. "Can I have extra chocolate sauce instead of the whipped cream?" A smile from the Swiss German waiter.

"Of course you can!"

And I ate that WHOLE thing up by myself with not an ounce of guilt ... and now I'm going running. :D

I'm a sucker for bread pudding too!

Very interesting ...

Kate said...

A little bit of indulgence now and then won't hurt anyone!

I LOVE the way all of the color is in the middle of this photo and it fades along the edges. Brilliant!

Santa Fe has so many great buildings and scenes. YOu must be in photography heaven! Have you ever posted any turquoise and silver?

Luis Gomez said...

Wonderful and sounds delicious!

Jacob said...

Lovely! You have the same problem I do: Lots of "will" power but not enough "won't" power! :-)

Have a great day, Randy!

It's just too hard to resist these things Randy, that's a little unfair putting a 'tempter' painting like that up haha! No chance of saying no after seeing that!!

Light-In-A-Box said...

Hard to resist the temting treats!
Yum, Yum..
I hope you folks got more rain down there! Fires still burning?

Carola said...

It does look very inviting. The colors make a warm atmosphere.
That sounds pretty sweet with caramel. Hope it was your taste.

Carola said...

Oh, now I read "it was delicious".

Sharon said...

Oh my, that bread pudding does sound delicious.

We do not make me taste. Converge mnně saliva. Ham, ham.

Magpie said...

Ah, blame it on the art. :) It's so true though. Packaging of products is intended to do the same thing. There's a new cupcake shop in town and I think if I go there and have just one cupcake...maybe I'm not being so bad. :)

Farmchick said...

This looks like a cute place.

"And the weak shall inherit the earth"...oh wait, that was meek wasn't it? You don't have a chance Randy.

Dawn said...

Sly advertising....
and you fell for it!
I bet it was worth every bite!!

Sonya Heilmann said...

I love that painting! However, I now feel like I really need a sweet treat!

jennyfreckles said...

No doubt sales have increased since they put that picture up. I confess I don't even need a picture trigger when I get into a coffee shop!

cieldequimper said...

I like the bold colours.

Next time I'll have your bread pudding (I loooooove bread pud) and you can have VDP's treats today!

Lúcia said...

I'd love to have a slice of that pudding!

JM said...

Very naïf painting. Cool! Nice shot.

Fábio Martins said...

Hmmmm... it seems delicious! :)
I like the board

Hiya Randy!
Well, i will definitely have to try this place out when I get back!! Glad to see you guys are getting rain. I hear the fire is pretty much contained... how's the air quality been?

Winchester Daily Photos said...

Bread pudding - I thought that was just a British thing..I wonder if it's the same recipe, bread, dried fruit, eggs, sugar, milk?

RedPat said...

To quote my mother "It's only once in awhile" - glad you indulged!

Halcyon said...

It's a nice painting. Perfect for a coffee shop!

Elettra said...

It 'impossible to say no to desserts!!

Regina K said...

You have my will power, glad you indulged.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Oh, I would have such a difficult time resisting dessert with that art on the wall!

Bises,
Genie

Alan said...

Who could resist?! Lovely colours.

lifeisaroadtrip said...

What a perfect place for such a sweet painting!

Montreal Photo Daily said...

No, you didn't??? hehe.
Resistance is futile!

Jack said...

Yes, this does look like a good place. But, Randy, whipped cream? That isn't in my diet.

Judy said...

Oh my goodness, I can never pass up on bread pudding...especially with caramel sauce.

I've been severely lacking in that kind of strength lately, like the past 30 years
