But then I got lazy.
I wanted to make Chocolate Cobbler Cake, but I realized that would mean putting forth an effort. Of course, you'll need to understand that I was totally willing to pony-up if it meant I would reap sweet, chocolately rewards. The thought of hot, fudgy chocolate sauce and cake with creamy vanilla ice-cream definitely motivated me.
But then I realized I didn't have any ice-cream.
At this point, I had been dead-set on cake and ice-cream. If I was going to get off my butt and make a cake, I was going to eat it the way I wanted it: with ice-cream. So...I went to the grocery store. This was a convenient venture, as I also realized I didn't have any food at home.
I'm back now, and there is still no vanilla ice-cream in my freezer, nor Chocolate Cobbler Cake in my oven. Before you call me a lazy oaf, let me show you why I decided to forget my previous desert plans:
That, boys and girls, is heaven on earth. Sea Salt Caramel Gelato. Holy cow. It's creamy, it's caramely, it's got the perfect salty tang....vanilla ice-cream never stood a chance. And yes, I couldn't be bothered to take a picture before I sampled a rather large portion of this tasty treat. Congrats- you now have photographic proof of my gluttony.
Also, can I just say that I'm thrilled that it comes in a reusable plastic jar? Cute, practical, and delicious. This gelato has stolen my heart. There were a few other flavors, including a raspberry sorbet. I think I might just have to work my way through them all. And after that task is complete, I'm sure I'll be very comfortable in my diabetic coma.
Happy Labor Day!
