Pink Ice Cream


Continuing with my love of fruit sorbets this summer,
I have to show you this one!  Not only is it amazingly
delicious, but that color!  It's gorgeous...it's pink...
and it's so girly! ha.
"Private Selection" is from Kroger....all of the
food I have bought under this label has been delicious!




Eating this reminded me
 of this little poem from a book I
had when I was a little girl.




It's one of the very few things I have from my
childhood.  I loved this little book and can
still remember all the little rhymes.

Yes, pink ice cream is lickety good!

  1. Sorbet is a bit of a rarity around here. In posh restaurants in France plain sorbet is served between each course. The idea being that it refreshes the mouth and takes away the taste of the previous course.

    I think I prefer sorbet rather than pink ice-cream as a sweet!

    1. Surprise. I'm late, yet I'm first.

    2. Sorbet is used that way here, too...to cleanse the palette between courses. It's usually lemon.

    1. Sorbet doesn't have dairy
      so it should be too scary!

  3. I like that.....lickety-good! When it's so hot out, I prefer sorbet over ice cream. Lately, we have been loving mango flavored Italian Ice. Have you ever tried Italian Ice?

    2. Eddies books were all written by hand on vellum or papyrus, that's why they disintegrated! Eddie isn't as young as he says. Ha!

    3. Well now! That explains a lot of things!

  5. How precious...the illustrations remind me of my first school books...."Dick and Jane". The girly pink would be my favorite too.

  6. Such a great colour! I could use a sorbet right about now. Steaming here. I did have a coconut blood orange ice pop earlier... but I want another! Sweet little book and poem. I remember you posting a photo of yourself as a little girl and it was so dear.

    1. Steaming hot here, too....heat advisory...just so humid with the 90 degree temps. ugh!
      That ice pop sounds delish! I had a scoop of coconut gelato tonight. ...oh yum.

      Delete
    2. Oooo, that sounds good. Never had that flavour of gelato. There was a heat alert here too - it was 111F today and will be the same tomorrow. I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!

    1. Peppermint is another good pink ice cream! Then I'd be ready to go back to my caramel and chocolate favorites.

    1. I'll have to show more of that little book. 50 years later and I noticed as I thumbed through it that many of the rhymes are about my favorite things today! :)

  9. Right now it sounds delicious. I just came in from feeding the animals and it is blooming HOT out there. I have one of those early Dick and Jane readers that someone gave me when I began my teaching career. It is a favorite treasure now.

  10. Hi Betsy - it looks positively delicious. Love the little rhyme in your childhood book - how delightful.

    When I was growing up - decades before you! - we got Neopolitan icecream blocks on sale ... gosh what a treat! Vanilla, chocolate and strawberry side by side ... cut across, so you got a slice of each ... I don't remember a poem though ...

    Cheers - and yes I'll have some of that sorbet - amazing colour ... cheers Hilary
