Some things are so much better when they’re kept to the realms of fantasy:
Romantic ice skating dates – it’s not romantic, it’s scary. And no one enjoys the fake “that didn’t really hurt” laugher that you have to do, while holding back the tears, when you inevitably faceplant on the ice.
Fried egg sandwich – the yolk gets on your fingers and you feel a bit sick.
Watching horror films – spending the next 3 weeks awake is not fun.
Eating ice cream from the tub – I blame American TV shows. It looked fun when Monica and Rachel shared the Baskin Robbins… In real life, the carton gets soggy and makes the ice cream taste like garlic cardboard.
And that’s not to mention the fact that you’ll probably vomit from ice cream overload later on. I’m all about a one-scoop. You can indulge in it at any time, and it’s not going to spoil your appetite, or the rest of the tub.
There’s no chance of garlic ice cream over at Threesmallapples HQ, not when I’ve got the prettiest ice cream dishes in town.
Spotted (and quickly purchased) from online store Three Jelly Moulds and a Wardrobe, this set of 4 (the other 2 are hiding) dessert glasses are perfect for those occasions when you want to serve slightly stale, leftover cake (with custard! Credit crunch and all…) to your guests, but your boyfriend won’t let you, so you serve ice cream instead and it still managed to look fancy!
Three Jelly Moulds is run by blogger, foodie and thrift shopper extraordinaire Elizabeth, who decided to put her ‘passion for rummaging’ to good use, and found a range of really cute items so I didn’t have to.
Thanks to her, my biggest dessert challenge is going to be waiting patiently for the ice cream to soften, so I can scoop the perfect shaped ball. Hundreds and Thousands, anyone?
