kate5kiwis: Berry Berry Delish Ice Cream


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

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??
bwahahahahaha X

Oh can you send him our way for a weekend? Two 13 yr old boys in the kitchen could make a feast of EPIC proportions! Seriously, aren't you just loving all this high school-confident-independence vibe? Jono was out with his whole class at the movies all night. And apparently there's a special girl who I've never heard of but DAD knows all about????

What a busy, sporty house... you must be loving it. Good luck for the triathlon...will be thinking of you at the crack of dawn...
