A House is not a Home
"I am a city boy who works in the province", goes the first line of my blogger profile. That means on top of the stressful days and nights in the office writing reports and beating deadlines, or working under the scorching heat of the sun especially during plant maintenance shutdowns, I go home to an empty room, have to cook for myself and eat while having a one way conversation with the television. Blah. Bleh. Blah.
The next morning at breakfast, Liz found my "pasalubong" and made us some "affogato". If you've never had some or heard of affogato, you might as well be missing half your life. Hehe!
|Espresso and Häagen-Dazs, an irresistibly delightful combination!|
"Affogato" is an Italian word that is literally translated as "drowned", but that is also the name of this delectable breakfast / dessert - an ice cream scoop topped with a shot of espresso. The slow melting creamy ice cream was a perfect match to the espresso. Delicious!
Happiness is best shared, Häagen-Dazs is best shared
Of course the Pasalubong is meant for the whole family, so Liz gave some Häagen-Dazs to my mother and my little cousin Kat-kat - in ice cream cones! We all enjoyed the cool and tasty afternoon "snack" in the backyard while helping our mom tend to the garden.
From a Single Spoonful to the Last Lick
"Ang saraaaap...", as I savored the spoonful of Häagen-Dazs in my mouth. She took the spoon from me and helped herself to some. "Yummy!" she said. And I agreed.
Do not disturb. Slow melting in progress.
Shhh... DO NOT DISTURB. Slow melting in progress... melting away our week long stress. The late nights at the office, the urgent calls from the bosses, the problems with clients, the homesickness and the loneliness... all of those are melting away into happiness...
|"Do Not Disturb. Slow melting in progress."|
Huling Häagen-Dazs Hirit!We couldn't stop ourselves from indulging some more Häagen-Dazs Caramel Biscuit & Cream before going to bed! Woot! We finished the rest of that cup that evening!
After all the creamy indulgence, melting away my worries and my stress, melting me into happiness, while sharing it with my loved ones... I was ready for another work week! And planning to pick up another pint of Häagen-Dazs Caramel Biscuit & Cream next weekend!
How about you? How do you enjoy Häagen-Dazs at the end of a busy day?
