Welcome to another Friday! I'm not sure where this week went since it seemed to fly by in the blink of an eye. We Southern Hemipshere-ites officially start autumn today which I’m less than thrilled about because I'm not ready to say goodbye to summer yet. This mornings weather looks decidedly autumn like so thw sun cant be far away for my friends to the North.
My favourite thing this week is probably going to polarise the blogging community (Controversy ! Gasp ! Shock ! Horror!) because you tend to either love this or hate it. It came to me on Wednesday night as I was foraging around in the pantry looking for something to eat post dinner. Obviously I wasn’t looking for fruit because I keep that in the fridge...For those of you who are worried about my fruit and vegetable intake I’d already eaten two pieces of fruit and had vegie soup for dinner so I’d kinda had my intake of good food for the day. I deserved to cut myself a little slack.
Anyway where was I ? Oh yeah ......I was looking for this...
I love licorice. And if it wasn't for the fact that eating a whole bag of it can have some very unpleasant day after side effects I could probably eat a whole bag in one sitting.Thankfully on this occasion I only had about 6 pieces left because I'd used the rest to make this a couple of weeks ago.
I know it doesn't look very pretty but it was hot so this licorice ice cream was melting fast. I remember eating licorice flavoured ice cream as a kid and loving it and I haven't seen it in forever. The idea got stuck in my head and so I had a search for recipes and had a crack at making my own. I wonder if I can find a recipe for licorice gelati because that would probably be awesome.
My all time favourite licorice is licorice allsorts. I've managed to get Little P hooked on these too... which is probably a fair trade since my Dad introduced me to allsorts when I was a kid.
So that's my fave thing this week. If you have a favourite thing that you dare to share link it up at the bottom of this post so we can all share your joy!
