It's time for the third and last SPSH link up, hosted by Mary-Lou at Patio Postcards.
These are my selections for the prompts:
No. 1 - A Breakfast of Champions: I have two photos for this prompt:
No 1a. Milkrice and accompaniments - anticlockwise: seeni sambol (spicy onion relish), pieces of jaggery (palm sugar), and mango (in lieu of the more traditional bananas). Milkrice is usually made to celebrate special occasions and it is traditional to serve it on the first of the month:

Thank you, Mary-Lou for this opportunity to participate in the SPSH.
Thank you, too, to my daughter, who, patiently emailed me the pictures I'd text to her, because my phone will not let me email the pictures to myself.
It's a wrap! Sounds as if you enjoyed the hunt. This is the first time I think I have seen wide-angle shots of your garden. It looks very invitingReplyDelete
Thank you, Lady Ella. Yes, I enjoyed the hunt. :) The garden doesn't look too bad, does it? The front garden could do with more attention, but, the back is coming along, nicely. :)Delete
It's a wrap! Sounds as if you enjoyed the hunt. This is the first time I think I have seen wide-angle shots of your garden. It looks very inviting; I love the mature trees.ReplyDelete
The doodles are great!
Thank you, again! I didn't realize that the first comment was only a partial comment when I published it! :D We had fun doing the doodles! :)Delete
Another interesting set of pictures. I especially like the cat doodles and the cake. I can taste it now. :)ReplyDelete
Thank you, June. That cake was a big hit with everyone who had a piece of it! :D I added some almond essence to the cake batter and it really made a big flavor impact.Delete
Despite your high temperatures your garden looks very green and thriving in these photos.ReplyDelete
I do like your selection, especially your doodle art and the foodie ones.
Thank you, Eileen - LOTS of watering to keep the garden green! :D Glad you liked the doodles and the food photos. :) I admit the upside down cake was made specifically for the purpose of taking a photo for the prompt! :DDelete
Bless thank you to both you & your daughter for participating in the SPSH. Your doodling is certainly very very good - art! Oh yes to upside down peach cake!!!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Mary-Lou. :) I was holding out for a picture of a delivery truck and my not Marie Kondo moment, but, I decided to use the alternatives, instead. The peach cake was made especially for the prompt! LOL!Delete
I love the doodle art, it almost looks like a greetings card. XReplyDelete
Thank you, Jules; I had fun doodling with my daughter. :)Delete
Great photos for the categories. I love the doodles. DH would certainly prefer the alternate Breakfast of Champions but I would probably enjoy your milk rice with spicy accompaniments.ReplyDelete
Progress on the decluttering - I acquired a better stick blender with some Air Miles and it comes with a substantial little processor attachment with various blades. This means that I can donate my mandolin (acquired from a charity shop years ago), along with the old stick blender. I also decided to donate a sugar grinder. However, I am hesitating over a sweet little teapot with a non-matching lid! Also I have a cylindrical container with separators for making hamburgers, which I never make. Part of me thinks I might use my new appliance and make veggie burgers, so I should keep it. We shall see!
Thank you, Bushlady. I remembered you had asked me if you'd see the milkrice as my breakfast of champions picture! :D I made some for breakfast, yesterday, too, but, didn't photograph it.Delete
Well done on the decluttering! Maybe keep the hamburger maker for a little longer? See if you will actually make the veggie burgers? Do you use the teapot or is it a decorative item? I have something like 7 teapots and at least 3 of them are purely decorative! These days, I tend to use tea bags for the most part, but, it is nice to be able to pour tea out from a tea pot on those special occasions, isn't it?
wonderful photos! I love the doodles!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Sharon. :)Delete
Your garden views are wonderful to look at. In addition to enjoying spending time in your garden, you must so enjoy gazing out and enjoying the view.ReplyDelete
I enjoyed your other pictures as well. Your pyrex is doing double duty as a fall decoration.:)
Thank you, Debra; I do enjoy looking out at the garden. :) Oh, thank you for pointing out that the pyrex was doing double duty as fall decoration! The October monthly photo challenge is "Autumn" - I can take a new picture of the pyrex for that! :DDelete
Great photos! I have never had a breakfast like the first one you show but it looks delicious. I wonder how many of us still have original Pyrex cooking utensils in our kitchen? I know I do, who knew they would last so many years?ReplyDelete
Thank you! Milkrice is a Sri Lankan special occasion breakfast dish. I usually make it on the first of every month. Those Pyrex bowls lurk in many kitchen, I guess. :)Delete
