oil on canvasboard 5"x7"

 This painting was done for Rookie Painter challenge;from the beginning, I didn't like the short foot's glass ,and I had to struggle with it. On the another hand, I enjoyed  painting the spoon, even if it was hard to find the right depth .I add a recipe which fits with the painting, for a light dessert, for hot days!

Ingredients,for 4 people :
40 cl of orange juice ( 3 oranges)
70 g of powdered sugar
15 cl of water
2 teaspoons syrup grenadine (or sugar syrup)
Preparation: Using a vegetable peelers, remove the skin of an orange. Chop coarsely, file in a small saucepan and cover with water. Bring to the boil. Rinse under cold water. Drain again.
Combine the sugar, water and orange zest in a small saucepan. Bring to the boil 1 minute. Cool cover. Strain through a fine strainer syrup.
Squeeze oranges. Retrieve the juice and mix with the syrup. Pour into a dish of 1 cm of thickness approximately, put it in the freezer for 1 hour.
Add 1 teaspoon of syrup grenadine . Stir with a fork to break the slush before it becomes ice (woo!is it correct?hard to translate...). Put in the freezer.
After 30 minutes, complete with the second spoon coffee grenadine (or sugar syrup).
Still stir with a fork.
Put in the freezer for 1 hour.
The slush is ready.
Bon appétit!
