Inquiring Minds Want to Know...

About ice cream...

I've been thinking about yesterday's yummy dessert and I keep coming back to the extremely delicious pistachio ice cream. It doesn't really surprise me that during the day my mind would drift to thoughts and memories of ice cream. Ice cream is probably my favorite food and I like it just about any way. I'm happy with the elegant homemade ice cream that I had yesterday. But I am also very happy with an ice cream sandwich, a Carvel cone -- especially with the cherry bonnet -- or a scoop of Friendly's mint chocolate chip in a sugar cone. 

What's your favorite ice cream treat?

Oh Buttercup ice cream is by far my favourite indulgence too. We used to have a "van" come around when we were kids and ring the bell. My dad would run out every night with the biggest bowl to fill and get lots of raspberry sauce. Back then it was just vanilla soft ice cream or "Mr Whippy" . Now the flavours to choose from are just wonderful. I love anything with toffee, caramel or fudge anywhere near it. I love sweet sauces poured in abundance; maple syrup one of the best.
If I could only have one set meal choice every day it would be a roast dinner without the meat ( I am vegetarian) and then a "large" bowl of ice cream and maple syrup. Oh I am in heaven..................

I love the Sunday cones that have chocolate topping and nuts. I always have some in the freezer especially in the summertime.

Huh...I'd have to say my favorite would be a vanilla & peanut butter cone.

Any ice cream will do as my taste and choices are very simple and narrow.I like a hot chocolate sundae and choco chip.

OOOh, Buttercup, I love ice cream, too. I am somewhat famous for my blueberry-buttermilk sherbert, but I also love cinnamon. I don't generally go for ice cream with tons of nuts in it -- interferes with the "smoothness" I enjoy so much. Cool topic. ;)

I have to confess...I don;t really like ice cream very much !! when I do have it I like the one made on our local farm with real strawberries in it. You would have loved on the ship you could help yourself to any amount of ice cream you liked at any time of the day...Mary made well use of the ice cream machine !! even had mug fulls !! every day..
Love Sybil x

If we're talking favorite then we're talking Ben and Jerry's Phish Food. Delicious.

In a pinch anything mint will do.

In central Texas we have a brand of ice cream called Blue Bell. Every flavor is wonderful, but my new favorite is "Groom's Cake". It has cake, icing and chocolate covered strawberries. Sigh.

I really like ice cream, too! My favorite (of the moment) is Haagen Das Caramel Cone.

ALL flavors ... have some everyday! Well, actually today I had the Better Than Sex Cake that I made, foregoing the ice cream ... not often do I do this.

Have a lovely holiday weekend, my sweet friend.

Oh Buttercup sweetie...
Thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart. I received a precious box of love yesterday and I cannot begin to tell you how tickled I was. I use the Burt's Bees hand creme and to receive a little sampling of so many things, it so made my day. I could feel your hugs when I read the note. I thank you so much. I could see you smile as I opened the box.

Ice cream, did someone say ice cream? I love strawberry best of all. Just plain strawberry. Now this Better Than Sex Cake that Marydon is talking about, we have got to find out more about I do believe. What on earth has she cooked up now? Love it.

I am trying to walk the hall a few more times each day. Yesterday was 4, so today I am trying 5. It is very exhausting for me. I have to walk the hall to get to my computer though, so I have been writing a few comments each day.

Thank you again sweetie. I love you. I will write again soon. Many hugs...Sherry
