Seize the moment. Remember all those women on the Titanic who waved off the dessert cart.

When your mind is crowded, one of the best things you can prescribe yourself is ice cream. It works like a magic broomstick on a dirty floor. It asks the things-that-don’t-make-sense to please go away for a little while, and come back later with a little more logic written on their caps.
This afternoon, I spread a teaspoon of peanut butter across the bottom of a ramekin. More sweet layers went on in turn: banana slices, a scoop of French Vanilla ice cream, shredded coconut, chocolate-cappuccino sauce (birthday gift from sweet Claire!)… then I sat down and ate it without thinking about anything.
I can feel my whirling brain slowing down now, see the dirt disappearing, hear the things-that-don’t-make-sense shuffling down the corridor en route to painting their logic caps.
Sally and I are dining with my flatties, then going to WOW tonight :-D :-D
1 tsp peanut butter
1 scoop vanilla ice cream
1 banana, sliced
A small handful of shredded coconut
- Easy-peasy method:
Smear the peanut butter across the bottom of a small ramekin. Add the other ingredients, in messy layers. Serve, relax and eat immediately.
- Yields one serving.

LOVE the post. Ice cream fixing most everything!
Oh. My. God. That sounds DIVINE! I always have room for ice cream. I actually think I must have an anatomically separate ice cream stomach. Love the coconut and peanut butter combo…gonna race home and make myself a bowl! Q: what brand PB are you a fan of? I’m a Kraft girl…:)
Hahaha! Ice cream stomach, awesome :-) I happen to love Kraft too, actually – creamy if it’s on toast, crunchy for things like ice cream. At the moment we have Sanitarium in the cupboards though… flatmate’s choice :-(
