I needed a quick first today, and because I had not eaten much since yesterday’s chili incident, ice cream sounded good. In honor of new experiences and the holiday season, I opted to scout out Baskin Robbins and their 31 flavors and find a seasonal treat I had not tried before.
I was hoping for egg nog flavored ice cream, and that’s exactly what I found! There were several other seasonal ice creams that looked tempting, yet I stayed with my first choice. I don’t think I’ve ever drank real egg nog, the kind with alcohol in it. That could be another first! I do remember a non-alcoholic egg nog that my mom used to serve when I was a kid. At least, I think it was non-alcoholic. Maybe I should ask Mom!
The ice cream today, a single scoop in a small waffle cone, tasted exactly like the egg nog I remembered from my childhood. And the rich, creamy cold confection didn’t upset my stomach. It was quite satisfying, actually. I’m glad I tried it.
My second “first” for today is to do a second blog, a Day 352.5, something I have not done this entire year. It is my opportunity to do a full review for the movie, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, which I enjoyed again this evening. Check my blog to catch this additional post.
