I was invited by Calen of Impromptu Promptlings to participate in this challenge. Today is Day One.
The Ingredients for Happiness
Sheldon Cooper of The Big Bang Theory once say, “50% of marriages end in divorce, but 100% of ice cream bars end in happiness!” He was trying to convince his friend Howard to have an ice cream bar at Howard and Bernadette’s wedding reception.
Personally, I agree that 100% of ice cream bars end in happiness. Even those of us with lactose intolerance can take a Lactaid and participate! My own favorite make-you-own sundae was inspired by Friendly’s. I ALWAYS get the Reese’s Pieces Sundae (without the marshmallow sauce or cherry). My friends and I frequented Friendly’s all during college and beyond. I discovered I could make the basic sundae at home – all I needed was ice cream, chocolate sauce, peanut butter (PB), and a microwave. I put a scoop of PB in a glass measuring cup, microwave it for 30 seconds, and voilà! Melted PB! (Note: If you try this at home, be sure you don’t over-heat the PB; burned PB smells awful.) I pour it over the ice cream (I personally like vanilla bean) and spoon out any remaining PB. The dog even gets to partake – she licks the measuring cup clean. Then I add the chocolate sauce, and – heaven! And, it’s got protein, so (theoretically) it could stand alone as a meal! Yum yum!
The Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge rules require you to post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or simply a short paragraph – it’s entirely up to you.
Then each day, nominate another blogger to carry on this challenge.
Accepting the challenge is entirely up to the person nominated, it is not a command. Today, I’m inviting Nuggets of Gold to join the challenge.
(Actually, anyone can join in, so please do.)
