I’d wanted to take a photo of the empty container. It was too much to eat in one sitting.
This is not any ordinary ice cream sandwich.
It’s a Leona’s Pittsburgh Ice Cream Sandwich. Click the link to see all their fancy flavor combinations.
Tuesday evening I joined friends for a seafood supper at Roland’s in the Strip District. The five of us met to dine out, for the first time in over a year. We had a table outside and had a good time at our reunion, eating and toasting to our being together.
One dessert was sufficient to share.
My mother (from Illinois) always made a Christmas JELL-O with the juice of a fresh lemon added. I made it on Christmas Eve but forgot it on Christmas Day and it’s still in the fridge. Maybe we’ll eat some tomorrow. Her other concoction was lemon jello with crushed pineapple and shredded carrots with fresh lemon a pinch of salt. Oh and one made with the little packet of plain gelatin, fresh limes’ juice and sliced green grapes. My childhood memories of JELL-O(click for history as it all started in 1897) my sense is that it’s just not as popular anymore.
So JELL-O, yes or no?

My sister gave me this cookbook
Perhaps your remember my Rainbow JELL-O post which was more of an art project.
I found this photo is my archives.
Artisan Apple and Pumpkin Pies at Citarella, when visiting my sister at Thanksgiving, the year Mark’s family came,too.
If you had to choose just one, which would you choose?
What a perfect mouthful. Steve brought home a fancy dessert from his dinner out. I was headed up to bed. I said I’ll have one mouthful. I put it on a spoon and poured a bit of the accompanying sauce in a little dish. Oh my!
What a mistake to make one teaspoonful. I could have eaten the entire dessert but look forward to repeating the experience tomorrow. Not sure how early in the day would be okay.
I did not lick the bowl but thought about doing so.
This tapioca is take out from the Grant Bar in Millvale. I took it out of the container and put it in the glass. Eating it reminds me of childhood. If you click the word Tapioca you will learn it’s a starch without much nutritional value.
Here’s the question-tapioca? Yes or no?
I added a piece of mandarin as it looked as if it needed a garnish. I had it for breakfast. They include a couple of half and half shots so I put one in my coffee, not on the tapioca.
Dessert at the Cafe at the Frick. See those slices of fresh pear? The flaky crust galette was warmed and topped with a scoop of ricotta gelato. That’s a golden drizzle of bourbon caramel and a shake of cinnamon you see finishing the presentation. Oh and a pansy with a few blueberries for garnish. Mmmmmm.It was a perfect fall dessert.
Before lunch, my friend V and I had seen the exhibit of Katherine Hepburn Dressed for Stage and Screen showing her Costume and Fashion Collection. On view until January 12th. This winter we’ll watch a few of the old movies featured to see her wearing the costumes on screen.
