First off, the Fried Ice Cream. Fried Ice Cream just happens to be one of my favorite Mexican desserts. Can you say yum-o? I make a Mock Fried Ice Cream at home that tastes close enough to the real thing to satisfy a craving. Now back to Breyers new version … “Cinnamon caramel light ice cream swirled with honey caramel with cinnamon tostada pieces.” It’s a Special Edition, which means its time on the shelf might be limited. I had a small sample of it tonight, with a little bit of honey drizzled over it, and it’s quite tasty. Though I gotta say, my own Mock Fried Ice Cream (still using Breyers product actually) is better.
Now their second new flavor, Bubble Yum. One of the fun perks of Summer is that Baskin Robbins rolls out their Bubble Gum ice cream. You can hardly make it halfway through a cone before having a wad of gum in your mouth so large that you can’t chew it anymore. Love that stuff. I haven’t tried Breyers version yet … one at a time, folks.
Up next – Tivo Alert. Alton Brown fans will be excited to know that his new show, Feasting on Asphalt, premieres this Saturday. Alton will be going crisscrossing the country to find America’s best road food, all on his motorcycle. Should be a fun one.
Lastly, check out my short piece here on Wine Sediments about new pink wines you just might need to add to your collection. I picked up a few of them this past weekend, so liquid research will be forthcoming.
All for tonight folks. Until tomorrow…
Movie Update: We’ve been catching up a bit on movies recently: Flight Plan (I will never fall asleep on a plane again, good movie), Failure to Launch (cute, strikingly similar to How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days), The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio (based on a true story, a little poignantly sad) and Elizabethtown (ok).
A year ago today … magazine haul.
