The Bitter With The Sweet

What has a bowl of ice cream to do with life? Both bring you bitter and sweet. At least, they do if you drizzle just a tablespoon or so of the cold-brewed essence of coffee over vanilla and coffee ice cream as we did this week.

The coffee drizzle is so strong that you can hardly stand it straight - bitter as betrayal and strong as Samson - but gentle it down with some really nice ice cream and you have a treat work talking about. It freezes on the ice cream in an icy shell and makes a little puddle of dark pleasure at the bottom of the bowl, to be scraped up at the end when it has mingled with the melting ice cream. One of life's little sweets, to balance the bitter.

Cranky likes coffee ice cream. A little jug of that concentrate in the fridge might save our marriage.
:D

Greg, a day isn't complete without a tad of ice cream, is it?

Cookiecrumb, I get the strong impression that your marriage doesn't need saving. However, it can always be enhanced by a little coffee ice cream.
