Five Likes Tuesday

What are five things that currently make you happy? These days my list is: Blackberries.
Devouring (blushing!) a delicious pork pie.
Tasting a fabulous, whimsical strawberry cupcake. (British English: fairy cake. Australian English: patty cake or cup cake). Interesting!
A hot (like really hot) cup of green tea; perfect after a heavy day at work.

A beautiful wreath made from fresh apples to decorate my home; just perfect at this time of year. 

Tell me yours! xx

During autumn I like drinking hot chocolate.It's more delicious than coffee.Also I like some kinds of cakes most these that contain chocolate.

Ege said...

A kiss, a cup of chocolate, a cup of hip-tea, boiled eggs.. and more :)

Big hug for you :)

moni sertel said...

I love a cup of coffee in the morning, I also love grapes and (now) my selfmade cookies.
May I come to visit you and taste your goodies??? :)They looked so yummi, yummi!
Warm greetings

I'd go for anything on your list (with the beautiful photos!!) except the blackberries. I love most other berries, but never have cared for blackberries or raspberries. That pork pie looks delicious!

I might add settling down into a comfy chair with a good book and my pups on the floor next to me.

TexWisGirl said...

yummy and beautiful!

barbara l. hale said...

I have read so many books where the characters eat fairy cakes but never knew what they are. Thanks for the enlightenment.
My five are coffee, camera, cats, crows and comfort. I am in a "c" mood this morning.
Nice photos!!

Bob Bushell said...

I'm coming over to try some, it looks so beautiful. Brilliant photos.

Gaelyn said...

I'm with you on the blackberries and might add that pork pie to my list. That leaves three: morning quad almond mocha breve that takes me at least two hours to drink, watching the bird show outside my window, and catching up with friends.

Have a GREAT day!

Sylvia K said...

They all look delightfully delicious and now I'm really hungry!! Guess I'd better get off the computer and have some breakfast! Wonderful, colorful and delightful captures for the day, Betty! Enjoy!

Hey Betty! I was hungry before I saw your post, now I'm starving!
I've never had a pork pie, but it sure looks good from the outside...

Pastor Dennis said...

One of my favorites would be a nippy, sunshiny morning watching the birds eat the seed I have scatterred for them outside my office window.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

I've never had a pork pie. Now I feel like I'm missing out.

Craver Vii said...

Pork pie? I REALLY want to try that some time, but I don't know if anyone makes it around here.

I have not yet acquired a taste for cream tea, but maybe it will happen some day. That photo makes it look great!

Kristin said...

That cup of tea looks delightful!

One of my favourite poems contains most of my 'likes' -
Travel, trouble, music, art
A kiss, a frock, a rhyme.
I do not say they feed my heart -
But ... they pass the time!
Dorothy Parker

Really, there's too many things to pick from!

....Petty Witter said...

I'll stick with the fruit wreath, it looks delicious and so fresh.

Here in the north east of England we would refer to your cake as a muffin (very American I know), a fairy cake to us is a smaller plain sponge cake with no fruit but lots of icing which is often bright pink on top.

Nevine said...

These days I'm loving smiles, hot chocolate, and warm hugs. It's a seasonal thing, I suppose. And so, I'm sending you smiles and warm hugs. I'll be thinking of you the next time I have a cup of hot chocolate... ;-)... which is right about now!

Have a lovely rest of your week, dearest.

Warm hugs,
Nevine

Sherin said...

I went looking online for a local place (near Chicago) that serves pork pie yesterday, and my search came up empty. :-(

Where did you get that pork pie? Are you in England? I want some!
