Well I certainly learnt a lesson this morning.

It all started with the kettle, all I did was turn it on at the mains & everything exploded....OK that's a bit of an exaggeration but the kettle did explode & it looked like it had taken the entire house electrics with it.

At this point I want to pretend that I dealt with it all by myself with ne'er a wobble, however the second I realised the fridge wasn't working the thought of the untouched tub of mint choc chip ice cream melting away just broke me..... I called my dad.

My dad only served to increase my panic as it happens. So when I hung up I decided to deal with it. It took about three seconds to re-set the fuse box, once I worked out that resetting the tripped fuse wasn't working I reset the entire box et voila, hopefully my ice cream will be safe while we're out.


But I must eat the entire tub upon my return home tonight. If I have to be the grown up around here I shall do it whilst on a massive sugar high!



Wassalaam

Is anyone else thinking, any minute excuse would have seen that ice cream being finished off? Wink


But surely if you have melted ice cream, you just go ahead and make yourself a milk shake? bro

wsalam,

lol mint choc chip is not so bad, but is definitely an acquired taste! i've found some new good flavors lately: mocha choc fudge and something called "moose tracks" or "fudge tracks" it has tiny peanut butter cups and caramel fudge in there yummm

Asalaamu Alaikum bro

I have to admit I do like those ice cream parlours where you pick your ice cream and then you pick what you want mashed within your ice cream (reeses peanut butter cups for example) and then you get to choose your sprinklies on top!!

I do have a soft spot for birthday cake ice cream and watermelon ice cream can really grow on you bro

I've never had watermelon ice cream. It sounds like a sorbet. Are you guys sure there is such a thing as watermelon Ice cream in the shops?

You can't beat Clotted cream Cornish Ice cream or Pistachio & almond Kulfi. I might actually make some. All this talk of ice cream is making me hungry. Actually does Ice cream fill you up  Huh?

Oh Sr. Fozia - you crack me up! Bless you! Funny thread!

Yes, I love those places where you can pick what you get to put in your ice cream and they mash it all up - in the States, one popular (and very fattening) place is called Cold Stone's - I go with my cousins occasionally on a Friday night, after a extended-family dinner - it is not normal ice cream and is extra fatty, but mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm goood! Though I am a big chocolate-lover, what I get when I go there is is vanilla ice cream, with chocolate cookie dough, with KitKat all mashed up in that! Yummy!

Mmmm, I've had a 'Crunchie' Ice cream. It is absolutely yum. Did you know it has popping candy? Delicious.

Yes Sr Cinders the crunchy ice cream has popping candy in the chocolate covering, it's the only reason I buy it to be honest, as the ice cream itself is pretty mediocre!

My brother bought feasts, they dont taste like they used to Sad for a while they had gelatin in them so we stopped eating them last weekend was the first one I had in ages.

Assalamu alaikum, 

Some of my favourite haunts in London are certain dessert & Ice cream parlours. But on one of my many escapades in Europe, the best Ice cream I had was in Italy. They do great Ice cream. The mint choc chip is yum yum. 

Oh Germany has great Ice cream too, but they tend to be Italian owned Ice cream Parlours. 
I've had a sebatical from Ice cream for a while & recently got back into them. The latte flavoured Ice cream is another favourite. Oh & what about Iced Coffees? Especially in this weather, it's a real treat! 

Ok, this is off the cuff... Recipe 

• 1/2 cup of milk  
• good dollop of good vanilla Ice cream
• a shot of espresso

Blend all the ingredients together. Seperately in a tall glass or Latte mug (the glass ones) crushed ice at the bottom. 
Pour blended espresso & latte onto crushed ice. Add sugar to taste (I don't need any). There you go, voilà! Iced coffee! :-D

وَلَسَوْفَ يُعْطِيكَ رَبُّكَ فَتَرْضَىٰ

And soon will your Lord give you so that you shall be well pleased.
