There it is, the ice cream sandwich.
I close my eyes and remember that long ago taste. It is a creamy rich taste that is smooth and sweet. The iciness of the ice cream is set against the soft cold wafer-like cookies that sandwich it. The cocoa flavour is strong and sugary. It is creamy and melty in the mouth. The vanilla and chocolate balance each other in an easy bite!
My coffee flavour this morning is called “Ice Cream Sandwich Flavor Coffee” but I don’t think the experience will be the same. I am hoping to find a balanced sip with notes of vanilla and a bitter cocoa after taste.
If we were having coffee I would begin by apologizing for missing our virtual coffee last weekend. My biological father passed away and I was away dealing with funeral arrangements and estate matters. His death was very shocking and unexpected. I plan to post an online piece about him in a while. I am a bit numb about it all because in the span of a year I have lost my mom, stepfather and now my dad.
If we were having coffee I share that I have been making slow changes to Brewing Coffee, Twisting Words & Breaking Pencils. Just subtle little things like cleaning up the Category drop down menu and stuff like that. I have added some new images to old posts to breathe new life into them as well as update the tags. I really did blog a lot about parenting when I first started out. Here are a couple links I enjoyed re-reading if you are interested:
What the F*@# Parenting Moments: We all have them, don’t we? – parenting and/or parenting blunders.
If we were having coffee I would ask you if you like my new tea cart, soon to be coffee stand? I would pass you the coffee pot and ask you what is new in your world?
