Ice Cream - ranked as one of Man's great pleasures! (at least according to me) The cool rich, creamy medium through which just about anything can be added for a delightful surprise. One such example found in NM where they make Green Chile Ice Cream which is apparently quite good. I never had the pleasure.
As a child most sweets were forbidden us with the exception of this one. I would often sneak some, just a scoopful of vanilla ice cream, and put it in the cracked wheat cereal we ate every morning. The cold rivulets of sugary milk were a wonderful balance against the nutty wheat. I'm sure my parents wondered why it was that a 4 gallon tub could always disappear so quickly.
Since this is truly my greatest weakness it was no surprise that I planned the evening's meal and schedule around Baskin Robbin's 31 cent scoop night. We were limited to 3 scoops but we took full advantage of it, including Isaac. Oh, darn, he couldn't finish all of it ... this is one of the few times eating off your son's plate can be a real joy! ;0)
