Let me begin by asking everyone how their summer went. Summer 2k16 sure sounded amazing even before the year itself began, but was your break as enviable as it should have been? What have you been up to and did you tick all those boxes on your to do list? Chances are, you haven’t completed all of those tasks you planned on completing, and now you lie in bed struggling to fall asleep because of the dreadful events that are to come. The end of August is just around the corner, and for many that means that school is just around the corner as well. If you are one of those people, do not feel too bad for yourself; I mean, after all, international school students have actually already started school. Nevertheless, it is about time summer drew to an unfortunate conclusion.
In most countries, however, the heat remains and drags itself over September as well, meaning that, although summer break is finishing, the summer season itself is still ongoing. Yet, that doesn’t mean it is going to last forever; instead, even being aware that you have a tad bit of summer love left in the sky makes it a dreadful wait for it to be gone.
In spite of that, take out your summer 2k16 to do list and take a look over it. Is there anything else you can do to fulfill those written wishes? In any case, let’s not get carried away. The point I have been trying to get to, in fact, is whether you felt the summer vibe this summer. For instance, have you gone to the beach or at least worn your bikini? Have you gone outside barefoot or felt a hot floor underneath the soles of your feet? Have you had to shower in cold water because it was too hot for a bath? Have you had to sleep almost naked and with the windows open for a cool breeze (which was probably non-existent)? Have you had ice cream at least once a week?
Excuse me? You haven’t had ice cream more than a dozen times this summer? I’m just kidding. I’m sure you have, but I guess what I am really asking is whether you experimented with that delicious dessert. There is no need to panic because I have prepared for you a few ideas for how to eat your ice cream. You know what’s even better? You still have time to try it out for yourself!
I like to call the following methods of eating your ice cream, ice cream salads. Just like you have normal salads, I like to have fruit salads as well, hence ice cream salads. Keep reading to find out exactly what I mean if you don’t yet understand.
1. Caramel ice cream, vanilla ice cream, peaches, caramel topping, redcurrant, and white chocolate drops
2. Caramel ice cream, vanilla ice cream, strawberries, raspberries, redcurrant, and caramel topping
3. Caramel ice cream, strawberries, raspberries, redcurrant, and caramel topping
4. Vanilla ice cream, chocolate ice cream, chocolate fudge brownie ice cream, bananas, chocolate flavoured strands, chocolate flavoured flakes, and milk chocolate drops
Above are only a few ideas which I highly recommend. My favourite would have to be #1
because of the pleasant combination of colours. Sometimes it’s enough for the food to look amazing for it to taste amazing. Know what I mean?
