[Keiki and me in our hotel room after a visit to the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum in Washington D.C. Please note awesome new hoodie (grey, zip-up, with "Blackbird SR-71" embroidered on it).]

Keiki and I returned yesterday from a four-day trip to the States, during which I ate and drank All The [American] Things. It occurred to me, during my third root beer* float, that I have a very specific way of consuming a float. First, I use the long spoon (there must always be a long spoon) to eat the foam created by the initial contact between the ice cream and the root beer. Then I use the long spoon to poke the scoop of ice cream around, scraping off the bits that are melting into the root beer. When I'm finally bored of that, I stir the remaining ice cream into the root beer until it's well blended. Only then do I drink it through the straw (there must always be a straw).

So now I want to know, how do YOU consume your ice cream soda?

* Root beer, for UK persons who have not had the pleasure, is a bit like dandelion & burdock. Except sweeter, of course.

See, I often find that I wanted something to go with my ice cream, even if it's just an edible cone.

Most of the time, though, it's coffee. I looooove an affogato for afters.

Oh well yeah, obviously ice cream comes in a cone. Always. That's a given. But I think of that as the container you can eat rather than the ice cream coming with something.

The only time I don't insist on ice cream in a cone is when it's one of those big complicated ice creams with all the fudge and strawberry and fruit and all that. Then I can deal with a dish, unless they just happen to have mammoth cones that'll handle it.
