Serendipity struck this afternoon. I went to the freezer and took out the sour cream anise ice cream to see what was left. There were about four spoonfuls and I put the container in the microwave for 15 seconds to soften its contents. About two hours later I returned to the microwave for some other reason and found the forgotten ice cream. Amazingly, it had held its shape when it melted and tasted like a mousse rather than like what I was expecting, which was ice cream soup. This reminded me of the Harriet Miers chocolate mousse I was going to make and haven't gotten around to whipping up. Has any word come of what GWB and Alito were eating the other night?

The funny searches keep coming and I keep copying-and-pasting them into a sticky note on my desktop. Here are some favorites:
-Novelty bathtub soap dish
-Veronica Mars chicken pox (huh? Veronica hasn't had it)
-How to starch polo collar (if you're still wondering, you spread mashed potatoes all over the collar and then sear it in a cast iron skillet in some hot oil, like a potato-crusted filet of salmon. It's delicious, especially if your polo collar is fresh, local, and organic)
-Who sings "I don't give a damn about my reputation" (this searcher found his or her answer, thank heavens)
-Julie Powell bad writer (could it be Julie herself wondering who out there's been dissing her?)
-salt&pepper porn (took me a second to figure out what they were really after)
-"buy a phd"
-killer kugel

The Blog of the Week contest is almost up, so if you haven't done so already, vote for Haverchuk.

I'm going on a minor hiatus from blogging for the next little while. I won't disappear completely, though, and my highly skilled understudy, Little Sister, will be here to keep you well fed.

When I'm back: more retro food (7-UP pancakes anyone?), television watching, leftover chicken, big hunks of meat, and ice cream of course.

Don't stop at pancakes, there's lots of hideous retro 7-UP recipes here:
