Right now, at this moment my slice of life is enjoying one of my favorite ice cream combinations. A just right banana sliced into circles with scoops of vanilla ice cream on top. The bananas and ice cream are drizzled with cold chocolate sauce. Peanuts top this creation off.
I feel like I have the whole nutritional needs thing going on; fruit, dairy, protein and this is about the only time I really do like chocolate which certain members in my family and site lots of reasons that is good for you.
Ice cream is my one food/treat that I completely enjoy. I believe you can never have too much ice cream. When I was growing up going to the local ice cream store was a treat, a once in a while adventure. Our local ice cream shop had a drive through window, it's the perfect idea! I often got black raspberry. I also would get a flavor called Mexican Sundae which is a spin off from my ice cream tonight - vanilla base with chocolate syrup and peanuts tossed and mixed in. When I could get a job during high school, I worked at this little ice cream shop and scooped ice cream through high school and college. I never got tired of ice cream. I never got sick of ice cream. I still loved ice cream! Everyone is happy when they come to get ice cream. Have you ever been grumpy at an ice cream store? When I travel I always look for ice cream stores.
I have favorites at our local ice cream stores. If I'm at Graeter's I like coffee ice cream even though I don't drink coffee. It reminds me of the ice cream my dad would make that I wrote about earlier. I'm not a fan of the chocolate chunk flavors at Graeter's. At Handle's I like Spouse Like a House ice cream. At Culver's I like a vanilla concrete mixer with fresh banana and Heath bar. At Jeni's my favorite right now is Rainbow Yogurt but this one changes because she changes things up so often. I like to share books with my friends and readers but we could also talk a lot about ice cream, if you want.
