Berry Berry Delish Ice Cream
ever since Charlie made *brown bread ice cream* at skool two weeks ago, he's been wanting to make ice cream at home. last night, while we were waiting for BD's bro Andy and our cuzzie-bro Jon to arrive from The Big Smoke (there is The National Running Meet in The Sunny Bay this weekend - new adidas shoes, tick. speshal rehydrating powdered drinks, tick. much brotherly hilarity and comparing of training schedules over the past three months, tick. little pre-race reconnoitre and pick up the goodie bag two hours before the first event, tick...) Charlie got out eleventy billion bowls and saucepans and nonchalantly threw around phrases like "whisk the egg yolks and sugar in the bain-marie" and "i'll make the sabayon" and "please beat the meringue to stiff peaks" and "keep the knife point facing towards the centre of the bench, otherwise people passing by can cut themselves..." and i am feeling surprisingly defunct cos whoosh!! there goes Olly-The-Chef's newest protégée.
and lookit what's been created - the lads are currently taste testing it - ooo!!! here's a wee spoonful for Katie - delightfully sweet yet tarty - that's a reference to the icecream you ningnong - of course the real dessert will be consumed post-1500m race tonight, which is pre-800m race tomorrow. so we'll call it Carb-Loading, ohk? cos my triathlon is at the crack of dawn tomorrow too.
got all that? wowsers i am addicted to dashes.
and can you spell F-a-m-i-l-y o-f A-t-h-l-e-t-e-s??
