Before I Hit The Slab

This is what my writing day looked like, Monday. I did a few different batches of allergy-friendly ice cream sandwiches. This one below, has 5g of homemade organic cacao powder, but the cookie didn't taste of cacao.

Back to the drawing board.

But not now. Now it's after midnight (again), and it's been a long, good day. Even got some new chocolate and new cacao to play with (more on that later).

Right now, I'm about to hit the slab.

    1. Knock on a skeleton's skull. So far NO problems. But it helps that I only eat organic peanuts.

    I'm going to have to pick your brain, Ivy, when I get to my heroine who has her own peanut-free food business from home. :)

    1. Taste was good. Just not of Chocolate. What's your favorite ice cream?

    2. The three basics… Vanilla, Chocolate, Strawberry all top the list - depending on my mood one of these is my favourite.

    3. That's a good three. I might have to do a Friday question about ice cream and frozen treats.

  8. Smooth or crunchy peanut butter?

    Careful hitting the slab. Sounds painful.

    Gary, who likes Cornwall double clotted cream, ice cream, in case you might ask :)

    1. Depends on what I'm baking but if it's just on toast, smooth. You?

      Ah, clotted cream, I never had the joy of tasting what I hear is super duper yummy.

  10. And yes I do love PB soooo much--nt so much in ice cream though but I'm sure it;s good, or at least the cookie part.

    BTw, no, you would never see Barnes, even if in London--not a terribly touristy part even though central and right near Hammersmith bridge which is beautiful.

    1. I'm not much of a tourist trap kind of traveler. More the off road kind of adventures. Those are fun.

      So now, if I ever make it to London, I know to hunt for the Hammersmith Bridge :-)

  11. Ps. Are all the books on the side your faves or ones you;ve just read? Quite the sci-fi buff, I see. I love that about my Alexandra--she is so too but more so movies or TV shows than reading sci fi per se.

    I love how that ship art looks like a dragon, no less.
