Ten on Tuesday | A Perfect Scoop.

...this week, Carole's asked us to share our ten favorite ice cream flavors.

I know a younger me would've had a full list of opinions for this topic. I remember multiple cartons in the freezer when I was growing up - yep, we ate ice cream regularly AND we had choices about the flavors! Not that we went crazy (were the flavors crazy back then?!); mint chocolate chip and berries stand out in my memory.

Fast forward many years and I have ice cream ... rarely. It's not my dessert of choice, unless it's late afternoon in Florence and I'll be searching out a gelato stand like everyone else or it's a special occasion and I'm going to make ice cream from scratch.

Of course today is neither of those, but I did share a double cup of gelato (cinnamon vanilla and strawberry) with Charlie and his mama.

Katie and I enjoyed it more than he did, I think.
Maybe not quite the perfect scoop?!

  1. I rarely have ice cream at home, I just don't buy it. But it's a nice summer time treat to have an ice cream cone at our local ice cream shop. We even have one within walking distance!

  2. I was wondering how you were going to talk about both ice cream and Charlie! Maybe he'd like chocolate better?

  3. Cinnamon and strawberry wouldn't be my choice, either, Charlie! Vanilla might be more our style. :)

  4. That's an interesting combo for sure! He's looking good and growing so fast!

  5. Yea I don't think there were as many options back in the day. While I enjoy ice cream I don't buy it often cause it won't last long enough for me to get more than 1 serving. Cinnamon vanilla does sound yummy-ice cream is fun to share!

  6. I rarely have ice cream anymore either. And when I do, it is always chocolate. My thought is - if it isn't chocolate, I don't want to waste the calories - LOL!

  7. I like gelato too, tho' I seldom have it.


Thanks for the feedback!
