This week's smiles....week 155

Here we are at the end of yet another week and as always I have found lots to smile about....and really hope you have too.

I would like to say a big thank you to those who linked up their smiles again last week....it really does make a big difference.  The world is a better place to be when smiles are shared.....Smile and the world smiles with you.  :-)  I would like to feature Angela's post from last week.....she shared the most amazing desserts from where she was away on her skiing holiday.....they almost looked too good to eat [who am I kidding? :-) ]........and thanks to her share this is one of my shares for this week....

My darling hubby treated us to a meal out on Wednesday night this week .....the food was amazing throughout the whole meal but I snapped this pic of my dessert just to make you smile.  It was an apple pie creme caramel and this was how it arrived.  We both had a chuckle at the presentation of it and I even shared a little of it with the love of my life [he did eat the sugar decorations on the top because I felt that did push my diabetic diet to the limits....and when you don't eat sweet things it did taste rather too sweet for me].  I will say that it really did taste as good as it looked.

This is my other share for today.  Our good friend Neet [of Hickydorums fame] shared the instructions with Jo and I to make microwave bowl holders and as we love porridge here it is something I've intended to make for a long time so being sent the instructions was the encouragement I needed.  Thanks Neet....I really hope you like the two I made yesterday.....hopefully no more burnt fingers now on our morning porridge.  :-)

That's my share for this week....what's yours?  Please link them up below and I will be over to check them out as soon as I can.  Thanks again for all your efforts.

Hi Annie,
Ah, lovely smiles again today and feeling a tad hungry after all that food - what utterly cute porridge plate holders too from Neet :D

Well our day is over and we are into our evening here as it is nearly 6pm does seem strange that your is just beginning.

I posted my Smiles post when it was still Thursday there, as someone commented already :D

Two lovely smiles! I love those bowls and reading about this made me hungry as I am typing this before breakfast. The bowl holders are beautiful. Ideal for porridge out of the microwave. (Which I love but Oat-so-simple is not for sale here). Could you do a link to the instructions how to make these?
The chicken and the egg is really sweet (literally I suppose). A very spectacular desert.
Now I'm off to the gym.
HaPpy Friday!

Happy Friday Annie, oooow that does look like a yummy dessert and quite novel presentation. But must say the microwave bowl holders are a fabulous idea - my bowl was a bit warm to pick up this morning and they would be idea - pretty fabric too. Have a wonderful weekend Robyn

Hi Annie
I've been sat looking at that dessert for five minutes, I've never seen anything like it. What a talking piece that is.
I'm just going back for another stare at it while I plough through my porridge and berries with cinnamon.
Happy weekend

Not sure I know which bit of that dessert you eat - fascinating! x

Hi Annie, I like those bowl holders. Like you, I like a bowl of porridge some mornings but the bowl gets incredibly hot - too hot to handle. These holders are the perfect solution. I need the instructions too!!! Your dessert looks far to good to eat :) Hugs, Elizabeth xx

Fancy going to a posh restaurant and being fed straw!!!!! Not sure I would like that!!
I like your bowl holders. I am afraid I still cook my porridge on the hob!!
Sorry I did not join in but I was scurrying around most of the week and Friday night I decided to leave my puter alone!!
