ice cream friday five, a day late

1. Ice cream: for warm weather only or a year-round food?
year-round, definitely; there are some things only a pint of Ben & Jerry's can fix.

2. Favorite flavor(s)
chocolate chip cookie dough; butter pecan, Hagen Daz dulche de leche, anything super chocolatey, espeically with nuts or toffee pieces, or fudge...(preferably Ben & Jerry's)

3. Cake cone, sugar cone, waffle cone, cup?
waffle cone

4. Childhood ice-cream memory
My mom would take my friends and me to Dairy Queen on hot summer days after trips to the lake (i.e. Lake Harriet in Minneapolis), the big highlight of the day was licking the "Q" off the top of the ice cream :)
My dad took me to Baskin-Robbins the morning after I got my braces on to cheer me up and naturally, I ordered my favorite, rocky road: not a wise move!!! My mouth was so sore I couldn't bite on the nuts and had to spit them out. It was pathetic.

5. Banana splits: discuss.
I have never quite understood the banana + ice cream thing; I mean, the logic just escapes me. Oceans of hot fudge, strawberry topping, butterscotch, whipped cream, nuts, oh glory be, yes, but bananas? No, I'll eat my bananas with my cereal at breakfast. It seems like desecration to spoil a lovely gooey ice cream treat with a banana.

Thanks, as usual, to the gals at RevGalsBlogPals for this summery Friday five!

Hi Barbara,
I hope you're feeling okay today! Can you please let me know about the sofa? I hadn't heard from you so I made dinner plans for tonight, but tomorrow night could still work. I'm really hoping you can come by either tomorrow or next Thursday night, as those are our only two free days before we go...

Thanks! :)
