It's been hotter than normal here the last couple of weeks, and I think ice cream has been on everybody's mind. There's a group of us that get together once a month for dinner and just hanging out and catching up. It's always at a good time as everyone brings something to add to the dinner, and there are some mighty good cooks here in the neighborhood. On this particular evening Lisa and I were teaching an agility class for Cold Nose College, and we were giong to be arriving a bit late. With this in mind knowing we wouldn't have much time to prepare something special we opted to bring desert. Now many people view desert as one of the most important parts of the meal, so maybe this wasn't our best choice but seeing that we would be late it was our only option. With little time to prepare we grabbed two cartons of ice cream and a couple boxes of ice cream cones, and headed up the hill. Well, you would have thought we had brought the most elaborate of deserts. Yes the simple ice cream cone is still a favorite of a good many folks. I think it's because we don't enjoy them often enough. Or maybe they remind us of being a kid again. Either way, they were a hit. I don't think there was much left, and I bet there will be ice cream and cones on everyones shopping list soon. So if it's been a while since you've eaten an ice cream cone, next time you're out, treat yourself to one of life's most enjoyable pleasures, an ice cream cone.
