Phirni McFlurry! A dessert option they used to have at MacDonald's in India. Rice pudding with vanilla ice cream. I took equal parts of ice cream and rice pudding and mixed them together. It was delicious.

Earlier this afternoon, for some reason, I was wondering if they had MacDonald's in India. Sure enough they do. No hamburgers or anything with beef or pork, but plenty of chicken and vegetarian choices. I came across the Phirni McFlurry and realized that I had some rice pudding in the fridge that I bought by mistake. So why not try it. It was really good. Now I won't be throwing away any rice pudding.

What are you guys having for dessert? Anything out of the ordinary? Anything fancy? Anything at all? Don't tell me you don't eat dessert. I don't want to hear that crap.

Well, I made a peach pie two days ago and there's still a piece or two left ((it's a miracle!!), so we're finishing it up.

Too much herb and spice in the normal main course, not looking for a lump of sugar afterwards.
Mango wontons with powdered sugar? Grilled bananas with hot buttered rum sauce? See Bob Blumer.

Tonight is pasta Alfredo (scratch prep) on the side will be scallops in butter, herbs & garlic and fine bread crumb. Mixed greens with Greek kalamata EVO and balsamic ($60/liter).
This all depends on being able to find the extra special pack of frozen scallops.

I originally made soft pretzels for dessert. Made them last night to reheat in the toaster oven. So I had the ice cream as a last course and pretzel as a mid-evening snack. I must say, that the Mango wontons with powdered sugar and grilled bananas with hot buttered rum sauce sounds tremendous. I would also go for the peach pie. I ate halloween candy last night. Twix. Did you know the individual or mini sized Twix bar comes with a left or a right indicator so it still is an "according to Hoyle" twin bar?

I shared. Heidi-cat got 2 raw scallops for a treat. She will die in the next couple of days, dammit.
She's been my constant companion for some 15 years, maybe 17. This will take some adjustment.

The Alfredo was UGLY. Why, I don't know. I do what I always did.
The seasoned and crumbed scallops were good enough that I ATE THEM ALL.

The Halloween chocolates. Eat them frozen. A taste treat made in heaven ( not hell).
Grouse hunting after snow falls, the OHenry's ride in the upper right pocket of my day pack.
I put them out the front door long before we are gunned up and ready to go.
I'll try frozen Twix this year. Sounds right.

Bob Blumer puts good stuff together but he works with jerk editors who don't care if a recipe is right or wrong.

Lay the bananas out and slice in half, parallel to the bench. DO NOT peel.
On your stove, melt some butter in 3-6 tbsp very dark rum ( you know what I'm saying here?)
Stir in a few tbsp dark brown sugar until it dissolves.
If a hit of Crosby's fancy cane molasses got in there, I won't tell.

OK?
Grill the open banana faces down on the heat for 3-5 minutes on medium.
Turn and grill the skin sides for 5+ minutes.
Plate with 1-2 scoops vanilla ice cream and add a lot of the rum sauce.
This is like shooting fish in a barrel. Nobody ever backs off.

I pulled this off one night with ripe peaches.  Blind-sided everybody.  I just sit in the corner with a slurp and a smile.

I assembled an ice-box cake for my niece’s birthday Sunday. Whipped cream and Nabisco Famous Chocolate Wafers. Melts in your mouth.

Wife took the last of our zucchinis and made a chocolate zucchini cake and some some chocolate zucchini cookies. Her folks always grew a big zucchini patch, and every time we would make the 200 mile drive to visit, she had chocolate zucchini cakes awaiting in the freezer. So, wife carries on the tradition.

Heidi-cat was a SPCA rescue kitten. Too weak and frail to even sit up on her own to groom herself.
When she tried, I'd put my open hand behind her back for support.

Now I have to do the same thing while she eats.

I promised myself two things.

First, she was never, ever going to get crap food. Even 2 raw scallops. Didn't pass those up.
Raw bison steak was always a hit. The little pig could down a shot glass of bison at suppertime.

Second, she could jump up and down and do all those things on her own. But if I ever picked her up, I would never drop her on the floor. She's always got set down gently.

Company came and went this week. Left a trail of good foods and drink.
I see a jar of home canned peaches that I might dip into for de Zert.
de Zert is the sweet thing that comes after de main course. My D2 said so.
