I rustled up some chocolate ice cream last night. I flung a couple of ripe bananas, a dash of coconut milk, a teaspoon of raw chocolate powder, a couple of tablespoons of purple cornflour and a dollop of honey in the blender. Put it in a container in the freezer and there you have it! Hermione hasn't tried it yet but Miles loves it. Oh, it feels so good when my cullinary creativity is appreciated *smirk*.
While watching Miles eat his ice cream a quote came to mind which I heard a number of years ago. It's a quote by Paracelsus - 'It's not the snow that causes winter, but the winter that causes the snow.' It suddenly struck me that I've spent way too much time addressing the snow instead of the winter in recent times. Time to channel my energies more effectively I think.
