Friday Night Dinner.

The end of a long week.  A friend is preparing to head to the Amazon for a year, so there are drinks to be had.  Come home at nearly 9pm, not drunk by any measure but just not that inspired to cook.  Check cupboards, fridge, and freezer.  Inspiration: crumpets.  With ice cream.

In this case, candy cane & choc chunk ice cream.

Being a grown up isn't so bad sometimes.

Sounds delicious. The Amazon...wow! Just traveling?

Nadine said...

Nice one!! Regrettably I usually roll in a little drunker than that so cereal is a good mainstay :)

VeggieGirl - they're great! Sort of a cross between a pancake and an English Muffin, I guess...

Aimee - PhD fieldwork for an anthropology project, about shamanism and archetypal images. A bit outside of my field, but very exciting for my friend!

The frequency with which I eat toasted english muffins topped with ice cream for dinner is a little embarrassing... I used to think. Now, knowing that wonderful you does the same every now and agian, I feel proud as punch :D

That sounds like a really interesting project!

What a fine dinner, I like it. ;)
Being a grown up does indeed rock sometimes.

Hahaha! This is totally the kind of thing I do! Crumpets are awesome like that! I've never tried ice cream but I have tried jam and soy yoghurt which is one of my personal favourites or marmite and tomato.

Oooh yum. I love love love crumpets. What brand do you buy? I haven't eaten them since the melted-butter-and-honey days :)

Carissa said...

Emma - I think these are golden something... or else Cole's brand. We buy them when they're on special and stick them in the freezer for moments like these :)

Oooh, crumpets + ice-cream sounds like a very good combination. Kind of like an impromptu vegan ice-cream cake.
