    My wonderful brother gave me an ice cream maker for Christmas a few years back.
  3. β€’
    And I used it to make a pear and port sorbet that was perfect.

    And a blueberry Malbec ice cream that was πŸ‘„πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

    I am a great cook.
    This is bragging, but also true.
  6. β€’
    But I make shit up a lot and throw in whatever ingredients/brands I have.
  7. β€’
    I bastardize recipes willy-nilly with no regard for rules or measuring.
  8. β€’
    This generally works well for me.
  9. β€’
    I have a kind of sixth sense about food.
    I also have the thighs to prove it πŸ™ƒ
  10. β€’
    But in this instance it means I'll never have the same perfect delicious ice cream twice.

    For when the experience makes everything taste perfect.

    Dar's Dairy Delight, Marblehead, Ohio
    The roof was a giant soft serve ice cream cone that blew off one year.

    Cicero's in Interlochen, Michigan
    They used to have huge ice cream cones (like 30 years ago??) but now they just serve pizza.

    Friendly's Ice Cream, Cincinnati, Ohio
    When I was little my mom and dad would take me and my brother to Friendly's and my dad and I would split a Jim Dandy sundae and my brother and mom would split a banana split.

    House of Flavors in Manistee, Michigan
    Rock n roll, ice cream for breakfast, if you're cranky, go home.

    Finding dimes in the sand at Stonelick Lake and getting bubblegum ice cream pops or Mickey ice cream heads.
    The lake is still there but the concession is long gone.
