Ice Cream Calling My Name

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “32 Flavors.”

Ice cream is my favorite all-time dessert. I’m addicted to it. I can eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Throw it in as a snack also. Ice cream even calls my name. Of course I answer with spoon in hand.

I found that I can’t buy it at the store and expect it to last a while because I’ll answer it’s call every time I hear my name. I finally got a clue that I can only buy it when I feel the need for the satisfaction it creates. I buy a pint, get my spoon and polish off every last bite.

It’s hard to decide which is my favorite. The mood I’m in plays a big part in the flavor of the day. I might like some oldies and another time I might venture out into the deep and try a new one. There are days chocolate has to be in the mix; double chocolate, triple chocolate or chocolate chips. Nuts are a must. Not peanuts though. If I have cake, pie or cookies, plain vanilla will work.

Talking about my favorite food makes me want to run out to the store and pick up a pint-a new flavor. Bye.

      1. I have a gelato maker I bought from a friend…After a few years, I just had a cabinet built over it…I can still remove it, but it made me less prone to whip up a little midnight snack.

      2. Wow, I didn’t know they had gelato makers. I love gelato also. May have to get one of those. When I make it I’ll invite company over to help eat it.

      1. No I haven’t. My first Thai food ever was about three weeks ago. Went out with some friends who introduced us to Thai food. We shared what we ordered so I had a taste of a variety of dishes. I love hot and spicy but one dish was so hot I thought smoke was going to come out of my ears and I was going to whistle like a train. I will visit that restaurant again.

      2. I love Thai food! Not all of it is hot and spicy. One of my favorites is Tom Ka Kai soup which is made with coconut milk. Mmmm… getting hungry.!

      3. I also love hot and spicy but that was so hot it could have blown the top of my head off. I will put the name of the soup in my phone so the next time I go I can try it. Thanks a bunch.

  1. Lucky you! For several years now, I have had an allergy to dairy products. They make my throat itch and swell, my eyes water and my nose run. No more traditional ice-cream for me 😦 but I have found really good coconut milk ice cream, so I’m happy about that! 🙂
