And it was delicious. Think about it – with vanilla, you can top it with any fruit you choose – sometimes we choose several fresh fruits! You can add any flavor ice cream topping you want – caramel, chocolate, butterscotch, peanut butter, etc. Leftover vanilla can be turned into any kind of shake you desire. The possibilities are endless. Make a flavored ice cream and you have – a flavored ice cream. A whole ice cream freezer of it. And you can’t really change that flavor until it’s gone and you whip up a new batch. Vanilla isn’t boring or common, it is versatile and oh so much fun to play with and dress up. So next time you think vanilla is ‘just’ vanilla – think again, and get out the fresh fruit!!!!
Why is it that someone can make, say, Mocha Almond Fudge ice cream every time they get the freezer out and no one finds it a bit remarkable. Someone who always makes their ice cream with fuit in it – no one says a word. But make vanilla a few times and they label you boring and uninteresting and you never hear the end of it!!! They always have to comment on the fact that it is ‘just’ vanilla.
There are some little females, besides the one male, in this household that don’t seem to mind the ‘always’ vanilla. (I do have to insert here that we DID make oreo ice cream just last weekend)
What you see in these photos, however, IS indeed, vanilla.
