I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream.....Gelato??

It doesn't take much to make me. For example, this cup of chocolate gelato with a piece of hazelnut chocolate (Nutella) vanilla wafer and a cup of cappuccino will make me a very happy man!! The photo was taken at Caffee Dante on MacDougal Street, just north of Houston Street. It is an old world Italian cafe with delicious pastries, gelato and coffee.

So what simple things in life make you happy?

You, mister, have no heart!

(Why, why, oh why, did I have to click that button... I want that ice cream!!!) GRRR

That looks a little sexual. Nothing wrong with that.

What makes me? Hmm, lots of things, but day in and day out, having two incredibly supportive parents. Unconditional love goes a long way.

ice creams and chocolates never fail to make me happy too!

btw, i've always thought you were a woman and your statement "it would make you a happy man" brought reality :) sorry

I LOVE ICE CREAM!

I have a whole fridge of different chocolates in my fridge in the office. Mostly various brands and type of dark chocolates.

You make me wanna go have some ice cream now!!

That looks yummy! Shame we didn't get to visit that part of New York. But I put on so much weight while we were there because food was just soooo good!

Do you find Nutella in US now? Great for you! My son can't live without Nutella!
What simple things in life make me happy? So many little things, Ming, like last evening, to get a fire ready in the fireplace and to strike the match...

Peter said...

This ice cream would also make completely happy, but even a cup of espresso or a glass of red wine on the terrace of a Paris café... if we just talk about the "small things"!

photolicious said...

Hey it looks so delicious! Really creamy and oooohhhh ice cream! I'm craving for some now.

How much does it cost in US dollars?

Gosh that looks good enough to eat. Very nice photo.

stilettoheights said...

you had me at gelato...if it were not so cold and dreary with rain right now I would walk the block to get to the little gelato shop 2 minutes from my front door.

Oh for the love of food! said...

What would make me happy? This ice cream would certainly do it! YUMMMM-MY!

Lori said...

Oooh! That looks yummy! Now I'm really hungry and it's not even lunchtime yet. Someone was just recommending to me a gelato place on the lower east side, but I've already forgotten the name. Oh well. Have a nice weekend!

Jilly said...

Oh look at it! Just melting on one side. Don't so this Ming!

What makes me happy. So much. Just living here and seeing the sea, happy dogs lying about - but to eat or drink? An espresso, a really good cup of English tea, a glass of wine - and friends. Before anything else - friends. Couldn't live without my friends.

I fight against the weight!

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh...... Oh, oh, oh..... Ice cream makes me very happy, but photos of ice cream is less fattening!!! As are cake pics, pie pics, cookie pics, choc pics, bakery pics, cafe pics.....

Well, if we talking about little things that make us happy...then it's my little dog, Truffles.

And speaking of Truffles...mniam;-)

poody said...

this looks so good! I hope it was!

Annie said...

You just made me happy - and I didn't even have to go to my freezer. Vicarious pleasure.

Paz said...

Oh, wow! I should make my way down there for a gelato. ;-)

Chocolate is divine.

Love, love, love the title. And now, I am on a mission: checking if I should add this one to my "best gelato in town" list. I maintain that numero uno is Grom and numero duo is Il laboratorio del gelato. I have work to do now! ;)

Lynette said...

Why, I'm happy just looking at this photo! I no longer can indulge in gelato (like I did when I took students to Italy) because lactose intolerance has reared its ugly, ugly head.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoying my blog!

Per Stromsjo said...

Real tempting shot. One advantage with autumn is that you get some time to enjoy this before it all melts away. What did it cost?

This is a wonderfully composed shot. Notice the very small focus field you've managed to control. Blurring happens almost immediately past the initial subject of interest.

Very nice...

Oh...and the subject matter makes me crave my favorite flavor - CHOCOLATE!

Nicely done!

THIS...will certainly make me happy too! Yes, simple things in life. :)

To reply to your question: a nutella's sandwich and / or gelato by Grom (see Eliane, Grom is from Torino)... :-)
