Round Robin Photo Challenge: Cold!

"Winter must be cold for those who have no warm memories."

-Unknown

Is there anything better than a very cold beverage on an impossibly hot day? This is my favorite drink, Coca-Cola Classic, with lots of ice. Actually, I should say that it is my favorite of the cola flavored drinks, I grew up drinking Coke, but I also love making my own Italian sodas, of which melon is my favorite flavor. But woman does not live by cold soda alone...lol...as you will see below, I have a number of favorite things associated with our current challenge subject, "Cold." Our challenge topic for this round came to us by way of our friend, and fellow Robin, Janet, author of the blog, "Fond Of Photography." Thank you Janet, this was fun! :)

Gattina said...

This IS disgusting ! (not your pictures of course) But you make me hungry and thursty at the same time ! Good idea ! I thought I would have to put on at least 4 thick coats to go to your blog and all the other once, lol !

Schelle said...

Great quote, great pictures, as always! I think I might have to make me one of those burritos for breakfast! :-) The quote looks familiar. It might be Deborah Kerr (or is it Karr?) from "An Affair to Remember", but I think I remember it being quoted in one of the all time great romantic movies..."Sleepless in Seattle". Fun entry!

Suzanne R said...

I don't think it would have been possible to make the yummy foods you have so expertly photographed look any more delicious! Thank you for the visual treat with those shots and all the others!

Celeste said...

I think I just gained 2 pounds!

Teena said...

Wow! What a great selection!

I'm just getting in from the and would love to down that cold Coke!

Thanks for stopping by mine :)

Karen Funk Blocher said...

Darn it, now you've gone and made me hungry! But I love the Sierra, NV show, and the Coke glass is especially well done.
