Ice cream

Sometimes only ice cream will do. You can either rush out and buy a tub of whatever´s your poison, or you can stock it for emergencies, but that way you usually eat the whole thing and then feel slightly sick and mildly guilty.

I prefer a bit of DIY, a spot of therapeutic chopping, a minute or two of mindsettling pottering about, so here´s how. Take two scoops of plain vanilla ice cream and let them soften a little in a pretty bowl. Meanwhile chop some very good 70% chocolate into very small pieces, and a couple of biscuits (plain Digestives, or whatever´s around) into chunkier ones. Put these in the bowl, mix them around, and there you have it, a perfect indulgence, just the right size, creamy and crunchy and exactly what you need.

Ice cream is the go to dessert in our house when it's above 60 degrees outside. My husband lets his ice cream melt a bit and likes to crunch cookies into his. I prefer to drizzle with chocolate or dulce de leche.

mildly guilty?! I feel awfully guilty...but then I know I'll be performing the same routine once one of those emergencies come around!
