Kinder, Gentler Bombing

I'm sick and tired of reading the news, of hearing about how we have bombed Iraq, Afghanistan and, now, Libya or how we have been bombed in two of those three places. We could write a terrific best seller entitled, "How To Make Enemies Wherever You Go."

Here's how to make friends, instead.

Instead of a roadside bomb, let's all make dessert bombes like our pal Sari did to celebrate my birthday. I was in Hawaii on that day, so Sari planned a birthday party last weekend and made a magnificent dinner, topped off with this beautiful bombe.

Mango sorbet on the outside, raspberry sorbet in the middle and strawberry ice cream at the center, ringed and topped with fresh raspberries. If you've ever seen a more festive dessert, I'll be amazed.

Go here for the recipe and go forth to make some friends.

MAKE? No way Zoomie. Not when there happens to be a magical ice-cream lady just a 5 minute drive away who does these magical bombes.
Do you call them Bermbs? A la Peter Sellars? We do :)

I don't call them anything, but I do say "minky."

Bombs ahoy and bottoms up (two bad puns for the price of one).What a delicious combo of tastes! Too bad we can't overcome the world's problems or our own countries issues by eating those kinds of bombs.

Ms Mouse, oh, lucky you! I will always call them bermbs from now on. Clouseau is hilarious.

Cookiecrumb, love the minky scene - and what follows! I must have watched those Clouseau movies 10 times and they never fail to amuse.

Greg, oh, ouch. :-)

Nancy, I'm convinced that we could. How could Khaddafi resist us if we simply went there armed with bombes?

Cookie, thanks for the link. It brought a smile and a chuckle.
