Rainy Day

February 26, 2008

George got me an ice-cream maker for Christmas-a completely self-serving gift, obviously. You see, he knows I love to frolic in the kitchen, and he totally took advantage of that fact. Anyhoo, I love the gizmo. To christen it, I made Nutella gelato, which came out phenomenal. Jorge was sleeping when I was done, so I left it in the freezer and went out (it was a saturday night). A few hours later I get at text:

G: It’s ungodly to eat this ice cream 🙂

Me: Y?

G:I’m not sure we are allowed this kind of pleasure

Me: That’s one of the nicest things anyone has ever said to me!!!!

Months have passed, and we’ve been experimenting with flavors, textures, and methods since. Grapefruit Champagne Sorbet, Chocolate Covered Strawberry Frozen Yogurt, Strawberry Mint Sorbet, Mango Ice Cream…. you just put stuff in, and the most amazing frozen, creamy goodness comes out. We’re both hooked. I still have the above conversation stored in my phone, though it’s been months since the last spoonful of Nutella Gelato. He’s been asking for it, of course, but I haven’t made it. I’m totally using it as a bargaining chip-I know a time will come. Ah, I’d make an awful mother… 😉
