I was okay with waking up at 5:30 in the morning and heading out on the 6:00 train when it was sunny and warm. I knew that this day was coming though, with the sun rising slower and slower in the morning. The mornings have been getting cooler and that's okay. I bought a really cute, asymmetric zippered, sweater. The fall rains have been coming and I'm cool with that too. I got my hair cut and it curls really nicely in the humid air.
But the sun coming up after I leave the house? That is where I draw the line! Come back sun! I miss your bright shiny face in the morning, it keeps me from falling asleep on the train... It's going to be a loooooong winter. Can't wait until I leave work at night and it's dark out, that will be fun too. Maybe I should move to Florida?
Pomegranate Ice Cream
Adapted from Nigella Express
I decided to divide my pomegranate ice cream up into 6 small Gladware containers. That way I can just grab one from the freezer and eat the whole thing! These little single servings are awesome, although I usually eat one container over two days. This recipe was so simple, it has me wondering which other flavors I can make with just whipped cream!!
3/4 cup POM juice (of juice from 2 pomegranates)
Juice from 1 lime
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 cups heavy cream
Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl. Whip on high until soft peaks form. Resist eating all of this fluffy pomegranate whipped cream! Transfer whipped cream to several small containers or 1 large container. Toss in the freezer for at least 4 hours or overnight. YOM!
