Adult Fail

Sometimes, you get home, tired from your day at work, and cooking just seems like a chore.

Yesterday was one of those days.

So, I grabbed these three things:

Really, what can go wrong with peanut butter,
vanilla ice cream, and sugar cones?

Dumped them into a bowl:

Mashed it all together:

And ate it for dinner.

Because I'm a grownup.

And can eat ice cream for dinner if I want to.

It was an improvement over what I did a couple of weeks ago: I poured soy sauce over white rice and called that dinner.

Sometimes, I'm too lazy to be an adult.

I made this ice cream concoction up when I was in college. Whenever the dining hall ran out of Dinosaur Crunch, I'd grab these three staple ingredients from the ice cream bar, mix everything up in a bowl, and dig in to my heart's content.

Because we had unlimited amounts of ice cream available to us.

Rumor had it, a very generous alumna endowed the college with an ice cream fund. I don't know how true that rumor is but the college does have a S'mores Fund. Awesome, eh?

I loved my college experience and can't believe my reunion is coming up soon!

Let's revist this picture:
I feel old.

Anyway, a few years ago, I shared this dessert with my aunt and cousins, and they declared it yummy too. So much so, that my aunt used the idea for her restaurant in Taiwan.

I can't really claim this as a recipe since you don't really do anything except maybe cry tears of joy at its deliciousness. And, I'm sure someone else has probably thought this idea up too, but if you want to try it, here's how I do it:

How to Be Awesome

  • 2 gigantic scoops of vanilla ice cream
  • 1 sugar cone
  • 1 tablespoon of peanut butter
  1. Mash everything up in a bowl.
  2. Eat it.
  3. Do the happy dance.
