They say that the way to a man’s heart is his stomach. If you use Mr. S. as the standard, this is true. There are three things he loves in life.
- Clem the dog
- A good day on the golf course
- Wonderful food
I have to admit, that I’ll agree with two out of three of those (golf is still a mystery to me). As you know, I’m not much of a cook, but there are a few dishes that I can whip -up that put a smile on his face. BUT, on those days when I set the smoke detector a-wailing, I know that I can make everything all right if I pull out all of the stops for dessert.
Thanks to Breyer’s I was able to do JUST that the other day after I somehow forgot that I had meatballs in the oven and left them in until they were as hard as those golf balls that he loves. After getting “the look” and making a quick sandwich, I remembered that I had a container of Breyer’s Gelato Indulgences Mint Chocolate and a Triple Chocolate in the freezer. Yes, they were supposed to be for Valentine’s Day…but THIS was an emergency.
I’m a mint chocolate chip gal, but Mr. S is ALL about the chocolate. I spooned a couple of scoops of the dark, milk and white chocolate melange of gelato into a bowl and handed it to him. I never told him it was Breyer’s. His response (after the look that I redeemed myself crossed his face)? Did you drive down to XXX in Palm Beach and pick up some of that imported gelato? I almost lied….then I realized. That the imported gelato comes in tiny little containers and cost 3 times what a 28.5 oz container of Breyer’s Gelato Indulgences does, and the TRUTH would be in the freezer. I fessed up and told him I was doing a review of the gelato that he had just finished.
He looked at me and said…”SAY IT WAS GOOD.” I laughed and thought
1. I’ll never ask him to write a review
2. He was right – it IS good
3. I need to order take-out tomorrow…but, I’ve got dessert under control
Never tried Breyer’s Gelato Indulgences?
You can pick it up at your neighborhood grocery store (I even saw it at WalMart).
