After a disappointing bite of a weird organic cookie bar type thing I bought at Whole Foods after my yoga class last night, I decided to forego what was about to be a lame dessert and indulge in a finger bowl of Ben & Jerry’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ice cream again. This stuff never disappoints.
And guess what? I’d been saving a little leftover cake (not pictured) for just this sort of occasion so I put a spoonful of that in the bowl too, creating one of my very favorite flavors since childhood – the basic birthday party marriage of cake and ice cream. It reminded me of being 7-years old, spooning melty bites of moist sugar-drenched richness off my Care Bears party plate and into my gaping, toothless grin.
The 18 seconds it took me to eat my dessert last night were pure heaven.
