It’s easy for me to dream about food.
Like, when I’m awake. Between meals, or during, actually. I wonder what a psychiatrist would say about that. For today’s A to Z Challenge, I went with, “what would go on your dream ice cream sundae?” I wanted to keep it light today and went with dessert.
But not light dessert – because that’s just gross.
I set out to ask my girls what would go on their dream sundaes. I checked in with Elise, the college girl, first. She, like me, keeps a quadrant of her brain trained on food. It’s what we do.
Her answer might or might not surprise you – but it’ll show you the ice cream scoop doesn’t fall far from the counter. A shit ton of chocolate, said she, and gummy worms.
I texted Marie for her entry. Only I waited too long. We’d just watched Furious 7, it was after midnight (relax – they’re out of school this week), and, just like a bill due, I forgot until bedtime. She texted me the next morning.
Strawberries, she said. Also, the Wi-Fi is out again.
Grace’s Sundae Proclamation
Grace also go the call after midnight, but, in true Pacheco tradition, she was up to the task. Her eyes turned even more chocolate brown and she went into a trance. CHOCOLATE. I had to ask, that’s all?
To which she rambled off a list as undecipherable as a Nicki Minaj rap.
Write it down! I pleaded.
So she did:
- Chocolate syrup
- Chocolate chips
- Cookie dough
Lots of friends chimed in with their setups. Behold:
Cherry dip and rainbow sprinkles on twist ice cream.
I’d probably put sprinkles and whip cream on it.
Hmm… well if calories are not a deciding factor, Reeses’ Pieces and Butterfinger topping. And whipped cream of course 🙂 YUM!
CHERRIES, all kinds of nuts, hot fudge, caramel sauce…wonder what bacon would taste like on ice cream? I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s a bacon flavored ice cream already out there!
I would say mint chocolate chip ice cream as the base with hot fudge, whipped cream, rainbow sprinkles, and a cherry on top! 🙂
French vanilla ice cream, hot fudge, toasted coconut, sliced macadamia nuts covered in dark chocolate, topped with homemade whipped cream. Mmmm!
All things caramel, Oreo, or peanut butter related will always be welcome on my ice cream.
One went full-on contingency list:
Depending on where the ice cream is served, my tastes change.
Coldstone = cake batter with Oreos.
Iceberg (a local) = grasshopper shake (basically mint Oreo).
Trader Joe’s = Cookie butter ice cream
Another dreams big, like me, even if it means going bite-sized:
Cakes, donuts, and pancakes- all bite-sized, of course – maple syrup, whipped cream, chocolate syrup, caramel sauce, and… strawberries!
What about you? What would go on yours?
Oh, and for me? Just give me salted caramel and Butterfinger.
