Monday, September 05th, 2011

The OCD in me really wanted to post this yesterday (Sunday).  But instead I went to Dim Sum for brunch, followed by a party in the hood where I dined on the most succulent fried fish tacos prepared al fresco under a perfect balmy San Diego night.  That was only foreplay to the Mexican chocolate gelato that took me to a place I can’t quite articulate.  And then the Funday really began when I got to experience a live acid jazz jam session until five in the morning.  I rarely say the words “Sundae Funday”, but when I do, there’s no kidding.

You’re never too old or too young to get down, get dirty and have some fun.  Knowing how to shake that caboose is probably more important than knowing how to type.  And having a RECIPE this easy around is key when you’re out until five eh em!

You’re probably wondering how I got these 3 crumbsnatchers to behave for the camera?  I think they remembered this cake I made for them a year ago.  Sweetest thanks to Malashock Dance Company for letting us enjoy a Sundae in the grooviest dance studio around. And when daddy-oh Jaret Malloy snaps the pics?  That’s the cherry on top to any Sundae Funday.

  9. Someone else mentioned this, and it’s hard to believe that delicious ice cream is just bananas and cocoa. Amazing. And look at those baby ballerinas. Too cute!

    Duo Dishes- When I first saw the recipe for just the banana ice cream, I didn’t try it for the longest time, as I was sure it wouldn’t taste like ice cream, but I was proven wrong. Thanks to ya both for stopping by!! :)

  11. Precious!
    You have some serious dancers there.
    But my question is, did they strut their stuff before or after the sweets?

    Jungle Dream Pagoda- Thank you, thank you, thank you, and more thank you(s). I am actually dear friends with each of the babies parents. All of their parents were first friends, then delivered within weeks apart, so now the little ones have a built in play group. That’s part of the reason why I chose the three of them in lieu of 3 random babies, because of the chemistry. Thank you again for stopping by and your kind words.

    Oh, my, that was quite the Funday. I know the feeling, but staying up until 5 eh em? My caboose isn’t just dragging by that time. It’s kaput! Gorgeous photography, love the setting for that choco decadence in a bowl. Worked with some of the Malashock Dance peeps years ago when I was the teaching type. It was a wonderful experience…
