Last night at dinner, I asked the kids, “If you could design an ice cream flavor, what would you put in it?”
I learned that we have a few strange kiddos!
The youngest one (the six year old boy) said, “SALAD! I want ice cream with vegetables in it!” Then he told us specifically that he wants, “bananas, apples, and blueberries.” After a little botany lesson, he conceded that it was fruit that he wanted, but the image of salad ice cream will not leave my mind!
His brother wanted salmon ice cream.
The next oldest, Ethiopian by birth, wanted to use berbere (an Ethiopian spice) to add some kick to her dessert.
I was wondering, “Whose children are these?”
Finally, the one I have to claim, because we look just alike, piped up with, “Well I want peanut butter and chocolate in mine.” Never mind that I don’t really like peanut butter, I’m takin’ hers!
What flavor ice cream would you make?
