Over the weekend.

share_temporyThis 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”?

    That sounds like a great way to eat soft serve!

  2. When I was young, during the last century, I could buy a five cent cherry dipped cone at the local Dairy Queen. The first time that I had one, I was agog. How had I not known about this crunch, creamy masterpiece of American ingenuity? Needless to say, though I’m saying it anyway, I spent many a barely earned nickel indulging myself each summer. In time, I graduated to the ten cent cone.

    I have just recently entered the “dip” arena. I have been behind people ordering ice cream with a dip and always thought that it would be nasty tasting so I never tried it. That was until I saw that the ice cream place had a toasted coconut dip and then the person in front of use ordered it. I asked her how it was. I mean…..how can coconut be bad if you like it, and crossed by fingers that she liked it. She said it was really good but that the birthday cake dip was even better. So when it was out turn I asked for my usual plain vanilla, but this time I added the birthday cake dip. OHMYGOSH…….I love it! I have to drive by Mac-A-Doodles on my way home everyday and I have to fight myself not to stop.
