The Gallery – Food (or possibly the world’s most expensive ice creams)
This post is this weeks entry for The Gallery over at Sticky Fingers
The prompt this week is Food. Now this is a subject close to my heart as I certainly love my food, the trouble being I don’t exactly have many photographs of it. It doesn’t tend to hang around long enough for pictures. Although just as I was starting to despair, I remembered a photo taken on our honeymoon back in 2007.
We were in Rome, and after a lovely meal and a couple of bottles of vino we were sat at the bottom of the Spanish Steps when we decided we fancied an ice cream. Just a small one, a very small one and so off we went to the nearest ice cream shop and ordered 2 small cones of simple ice cream. Of course the staff in the shop conveniently didn’t understand our simple request and we were presented with monstrously huge concoctions with pretty much everything except fireworks in them and for the priviledge of being misunderstood we were charged the oh so reasonable price of 25 Euros! Eeek! Of course once you are presented with a big ice cream you can hardly say no I didn’t order that (well maybe you can but me and the husband are far to wussy to do that).
Anyway this photo was taken by my rather tipsy husband, of a rather tipsy me holding the worlds most expensive ice creams. We were too busy crying with laughter to bother with photo quality but you get the general idea
