It's Not All Picture Perfect ...



Life is not always the picture perfect world we see on YouTube videos, Pinterest images and some blogs.  Life is just normal, occasionally very unsurprising and sometimes downright messy.

My little Pitta Bread Pizza was beautiful when it went into the Remoska for my lunch the other day ...


... and after a double flip and a triple salchow on exit it looked somewhat different!!

Oh well it tasted almost as good, but you really do eat with your eyes don't you and I have to admit to being disappointed.


Also not picture perfect but very very tasty was this bowl of strawberries and banana with the last of my coconut yoghurt.  

Alan brought me a bowl of strawberries over the other day, they were supposed to be my dessert after our Haggis Supper but I was just completely full up, although he ate his.  So he gave me mine anyway, I added a very overripe sliced banana to them the next day and a good dollop of yoghurt and then divided the bowl in half and surprised him with a tasty dish for his afternoon treat.

Of course a certain little Miss Suky in the photo makes it a perfect picture in my eyes 💖

  1. Yes, we do eat with our eyes too, the food always tastes so much better when it looks really good. Having said that, I've never fancied eating in one of those posh restaurants where the food is all piled up like a tower and artfully arranged - to me it's just pretentious, as well as trying to disguise the fact that it's a small (but very expensive) portion. I want to eat the food, not feel like I'm destroying a work of art by putting a fork in it. A pitta bread pizza is a good idea.

    1. I agree completely, I have never wanted nouvelle cuisine type dining, give me burger and chips any day ... but artfully arranged on a café plate ... not spun upside down and then reassembled. :-)

  2. Aw she is looking longingly at your bowl 😉 A shame about the pizza though, we do indeed eat with our eyes.

  3. Oh, dear. I'm afraid I laughed out loud as I read your words. Poor little pizza!
    Pitta pizzas are very tasty, aren't they. Must plan one in soon now you've reminded me. :-)
    Suky is very sweet!

  4. Love the idea of a triple salchow. I had no idea how it was spelt though! Must try some pitta bread pizzas.

    1. I have to admit to writing it as 'salco' at first and then thinking that looks so wrong and then Googling the correct spelling!!

  5. I used to make weekly yogurt here. I must get back to that again now that I have time. I like the plain yogurt, with just a drizzle of honey.

    1. Yes, I used to make our yoghurts all the time, although I have never attempted a vegan yoghurt. We don't eat enough of them to make it worthwhile anymore.

  6. I'd say Suki looks a bit disappointed that you didn't share. :)

    1. Oh she got to lick the bowl out ... how could I resist that pretty little face.

  7. My cat actually sits begging for plain Greek yoghurt and if she thinks I'm not leaving any, she moves closer and closer until she's almost touching the dish. The rest of the time she's a bitey, hissy ex-feral.

    1. Our cat is the same now, he used to be so wary of anything other than Science Plan dried food when we first fostered him, now he is up for anything. He puts his paws on our knees and begs and if we ignore him the claws accidentally come out ;-)

  8. I am going to try the mashed potato pizza at the end of this week.

    1. Ooh good luck, add a little bit more flour than I did and they should stick together a bit better.

  10. My little dog could hear a spoon scraping round a yoghurt pot at 50 paces - and would stare and stare at me while I was eating until I gave him the pot to lick clean.

    1. I can usually sneak food past Suky now that she is pretty deaf, but she spots a white bowl a mile off even being short-sighted!!
