When I was setting up for the mister's ice cream party, I realized that while we may have an excess of oddball items such as empty almond butter jars and oh...I don't know...sock monkeys. We lack things in number that may prove more useful such as spoons and ice cream bowls (ice cream bowls are very useful).
Mister and I used to have a quartet of small bowls we dubbed ice cream bowls that came from chinatown. They were the perfect size for two small scoops of ice cream (but probably for rice. I think they were rice bowls) and cute to boot...there were four and now there are two and two perfectly sized bowls for ice cream will not feed a family a-go-go of eight.
When all else fails or panic begins to creep in, it is Target to the rescue. Isn't that they way? I picked up two sets of malamine-like condiment bowls that were perfect in size and happy in color. All stacked up in a topsy-turvy tower is super smile inducing. At least to me it is...
And so there you have it. What accounts for excitement here in the a-go-go household. The acquisition of thriftshop spoons, and plastic bowls for the sole purpose of ice creaming it up...a-go-go style.
