Friday Food {Porn} :: Fried Ice Cream

Good Morning Luv-lies,

Finally Friday! Right?  Not a bad week for me.  How has your week been?  The weather continues to be frightful, but one thing for sure is, with each passing day, the temperature outside should be warmer & warmer. *I sure hope that Punxsutawney Phil is correct*  So, with thoughts of the warmer weather to come, I thought that I’d feature a dish that honors both, the frigid temps that we’re experiencing now & the much anticipated warm stuff that’s some to be….

Fried Ice Cream big%20red%20fried%20ice%20creamIt’s  little perplexing for me to wrap my head around ice cream being fried!  Who would of ‘thunk’ it?  Who did ‘thunk’ it – shear genius!   This I definitely have to try.

Have you tasted or created this decadent oxymoron of a treat?

do tell …..

A New Friday Theme & Simple home-style food

Happy Friday Luv-lies,

It's a Charlie Brown snow moment

Today is just plain ‘ol  cooooold!!  All week, the weather prognosticators have been predicting this sub-zero, artic blast that they’ve – most appropriately- dubbed  ‘a polar vortex’.   The temperature outside can’t be described as nothing short of bitterly cold!  This is the type of cold that freezes EVERYTHING on contact.  The weather guys  have also been promising that milder temperatures are in store *side eye*.  The snow is coming down fast! crazy fast!  and the wind is brutal! making it feel even more bone chillingly {is that a word? – ‘chillingly‘?} frigid!

I’m really glad that I didn’t ignore the pre-shopping warnings and not wait until the last minute to do that ‘bad weather grocery shopping’.   The procrastinator in me usually waits until the last minute to do those ‘must get done’ things that should be done waaaaay before the weather related closings, delays and traffic snarls have occurred.

And so.  Here I sit.  It’s Friday.  I’m snowed in.  sitting in front of my laptop … and thinking about food….

{Alert! Alert!} Okay. Right about now, I feel a ‘theme’ coming on.

Yes. A Theme.

I think I like the idea of blogging about food.  And the fact that it’s Friday lends itself nicely to a themed alliteration.

I think I have it!

Friday’s around here will feature at least one post that will have a food theme …. and it will forever be known as  ‘Friday Food Porn’.  *throwing confetti in the air*

I can’t guarantee that all of the foods featured will be the healthiest, but I can promise that they will leave your mouth watering….

With the weather today being as it is, I think that it is most befitting that the first post Friday Food Porn be about ‘comfort food’

Why start with the first meal of the day?


What is could be more decadent than donuts & coffee?   The mini size is a fantastic way to satisfy that ‘first thing in the morning’ sweet tooth without overindulging

 So that’s it.
This has certainly been a deliciously fun way to spend the morning.  Snowed in.  Comfy P.J.’s.  and comfort food.  The greatest beauty of comfort food is its simplicity and the magical way that it transforms us to a time & place that is familiar and safe.
