For lunch today I had Chocolate Gelato.

So good.  So….delicious.  Like the sex I keep meaning to have.

I bought one of those ice cream makers where you freeze the inner part in the freezer and then put it all together and hand crank it.  It takes about twenty minutes, once you get to the cranking part.  It’d be a good job for kids…but so far I’ve only made my icy wonders after little eyes are shut.

Here’s the Chocolate Gelato Recipe that is as good as the sex I keep meaning to have~ 

In a saucepan combine 3/4 cup cocoa powder and 3/4 cup sugar, stir until mixed well. Next you gradually add 1 cup of milk.  Mix it until it becomes a paste.  Then whisk in 2 eggs.  Place over medium heat and cook while stirring constantly.  You cook it until it starts to steam, about ten minutes, but it will start to thicken at about eight, and, if it does, stop at eight minutes.  Turn off stove.  Stir in 1 1/2 cups whipping cream.  Refrigerate until fully cold and then put in your ice cream maker and DELICIOUSNESS will arrive.  It tastes best right when you make it, most freezers freeze too cold for Gelato, so eat it up!  Makes approx 1 QT.

Sooooo Delicious!  

This is how I am spending nap-time today ~  Eating Gelato, which has no True calories since I know that I used air sugar and special cream that doesn’t adhere to my luscious tiny-hiney, and writing and maybe, and I mean maybe, getting a shower in.  I used to love to shower…now I find, suddenly, that I have many better things to do.
