Couple Cooking: quick dessert
What can be quicker and easier that putting a scoop of ice cream atop an ice cream cup, then topping it with a syrup, and whipped cream? Anything?
Just get a couple involved!
4 ice cream flavors on hand to choose from, 4 syrups to choose from, and whipped cream or just no whipped cream, but it is there if one chooses.
And then, A asks B what B wants. "You choose" was the reply. A asks B to come help. Like, select your ice cream, scoop out however much you wish while A steadies the cup, point your finger to the toppings A has on the kitchen island, then stand there, say "enough" when, in fact, enough is, well...enough, to signal A to stop squeezing the various and sundry bottles. That way, A is not required to get instructions from outer space. Way too much to ask, huh?
Now, A was not only diplomatic, but generous in toppings. And will be generous as the occasional calls for it henceforth. The hope is that B will lend a hand in the ice cream cup dessert in the future.
B chose vanilla ice cream with chocolate syrup, whipped cream topping.
A chose Pecans 'N Pralines ice cream (Blue Bell brand) topped with caramel syrup and white chocolate syrup.
We are happy and speaking to one another since we ate the ice cream.
