Grandpa's Waffle Cone
Max and Finn scooped out a waffle cone for Grandpa when they were here over a week ago. They put some of our super-duper ice cream mixture in the cone and then added Magic Shell. Then they added more ice cream and topped it with sprinkles. The cone was drippy so we quickly wrapped it in plastic wrap and then stood it up in an acrylic tumbler and stuck it in the freezer.
It was supposed to be like a Drumstick, the paper wrapped ice cream confection that you can buy from the big freezers at gas stations and party stores. Well, the methodology worked just fine, according to Ed, who downed the cone with no problem.
See that metal box that Ed is holding? It contains his prized French chocolates, brought all the way from Paris by Liesl and John. Ed is doling out the chocolates one by one since they are his Father's Day gift.
Pretty cool -- French chocolates and grandkid waffle cones. Hannah and her baby sister are coming next weekend so there will be more sprinkles and waffle cones. Also very cool.
