This past weekend was filled with a lot of productive activities, but very little fun. The deck was scrubbed, stained and sealed. A baby blanket I’ve been working on is almost done. There was some napping and watching of Voyager. (Also, I worked for way too long at the pool on Sunday.)
Was it the awesome weekend I hoped for? No and some points really were not good, but it was okay, I mostly didn’t have to go to work, and it was quiet so I’ll take it.
One of the high points is that Frank took me for ice cream down the street and I discovered what seems to be raspberry bushes.
I got my usual mixed soft serve with cherry dip and rainbow sprinkles in a cup. They do an okay job but I’d really like to get in there and show them how to do it right. What is the proper way to put cherry dip on ice cream in a dish? I’m so glad you asked. The proper way is to dispense the ice cream in to the cup so it has a hollow space inside. Then you put the cherry dip and rainbow sprinkles over the top and get a delightful additional reservoir of sprinkles and cherry dip.
I don’t see that happening though and I’m not about to climb through the window to show them. I think it would be frowned upon and it’s a little window. My tuckis wouldn’t fit. (Not being depreciating here, just being truthful!)
I realize that I’m a little different in my love of cherry dip. I don’t know what it is about the waxy deliciousness, but I can’t be alone if all of the ice cream places around here have it. I just wish they’d make it right.
What’s your favorite ice cream? What do you wish people would make “right”?
