It’s all a lie

The truth is finally out.

I’m not a real foodie.

I’ve just come back from a week of eating my way through the Charentes and Paris, and you know what? I didn’t take a single picture of food! Despite the big eating fests to celebrate the Hubs’ 30th birthday, I don’t have a single photo of food.
Zip. Nada. Nothing. Not a pixel.
I should hang my wok in shame.
The problem? Well, you know, after a nice glass of pineau (or two), I forget to take photos! I blame it on the French and their apéros.

Oh well.

Anyway, here’s a photo of some tomatoes ripening at my in-laws, and young grapes on the grapevine…well, it’s food!

ps. I'm looking forward to catching up with all your blogs soon! Yummmmmmm!

  5. hey, first time here, those lovely grapes remind me of my grapevines back home :) we used to cover each & every bunch with a cloth bag to protect them from birds!

    Dear WokandSpoon,
    Such a nice introduction. Very well written.

    Grapes and wine, my all time favorite. A perfect ending (or beginning) to any meals.

  18. It's the same with me. I got all excited about my food and I forgot to take a pic of it. By the time I remembered, it was too late. I was in Paris last weekend for a wedding. :)

  19. me too! exactly the same. :D i hardly take pics of the food. you were probably busy taking pics of mr. hubs. :D happy belated to him.

  20. welcome back to blogger world hehehehhe..and happy belated day for your Hubs ;)

    anyway i love your shoot, the grapes looks great maybe u can share how to do it :D

  21. Claude-Olivier : Salut! Bon, tu sais, après quelques verres, j’oublie tout! ;-)

    Isha : Hiya! The Hubs thanks you for the birthday wishes!

    Asha: The little grapes will look better as wine ;-)

    Sharmi: Thanks for the birthday wishes for the husband! Yep – we had a really good time!

    Richa: Hello. Thanks for stopping by! Funnel cake? What’s a funnel cake? Sounds interesting!

    Sylvia: Yep – no pictures but we did have a really good time!

    LittleCornerofMine: Thanks for the birthday wishes for the husband!

    Retno: How did you like Paris? How long were you there for? I’m looking forward to seeing your photos!

    Bee: Hiya! Thanks for dropping by! Thanks also for the link! I’ve added yours to mine…only BlogRolling is being a pain! It will show up eventually!!

    Kelly: Hello! Hey – yeah, I definitely ate it all ;-)

    EastMeetsWestKitchen: Thank you!

    Judy: Thanks for the birthday wishes for the husband! We both had a lovely time.

    Tigerfish: Even if there were photos – you can’t eat them! ;-) Hehe. And um..weren’t you talking about a diet?? Hehehehehe!

    NoraB: Thanks and yep – I’m ready for the next holiday now…which is actually in a week ;-)

    Everything4Sweets: Hello! The trip was great! Thanks for the birthday wishes for the husband!

    Kok: Thanks also for the birthday wishes for the husband!

    LeePing: Thanks! Grapes and wine are my favourite too ;-)

    CookingNinja: Sounds like we just missed each other in Paris! How was the wedding? Did you take photos?? Hehe!

    BuddingCook: You’re back! Yep – I actually took a lot of people photos but no food photos! Thanks for the birthday wishes for the husband!

    Lia: Thanks also for the birthday wishes for the husband! And glad you liked the photos!

  22. Glad to hear you had a great time! A Belated Happy Birthday to your hubby!

  23. Oh you're much more of a foodie than me! And I do know what you mean. Some people still call me a LitBlogger when I haven't posted much about literary events and book reviews for ages! And I've been out eating at so many great places lately with fantastic company... but again, no photos or write-ups to show for it.

    I think it's more important for us to enjoy Real Life and blog/read about it when we have the time/feel like it.

    Have a great week ahead, dear! :)

  24. I just stumbled upon your blog this afternoon, and I'm sooo glad I did! I've just read a few of your posts, and I love your style.

  25. I don't think that means you're not a foodie. It's hard to remember your camera when faced with such culinary delights - and in France no less!

  26. Ohfortheloveoffood: Hubs thanks you for the birthday wishes!

    Kenny: I agree, it's definitely more important going out and doing things rather than sitting in front of the computer all day!

    Susan: Thanks for dropping by!!

    Ari: Thanks also for dropping by!


Thanks for dropping by!
