Picky Eater

Today is National Strawberry Sundae Day! So, yet again, we have another food holiday. This one, however, I do have some things to talk about. See, one of the best snacks during the summer is ice cream for obvious reasons. However, it's also one of the many foods I am very particular about. It has to be made right, and the toppings have to compliment the flavour of the ice cream. To some people, ordering a strawberry sundae at a restaurant is fine by them, and I'll order one too if it's available and there isn't any cheesecake or chocolate desserts available instead. But I much prefer a homemade sundae simply because I control all the ratios.

My perfect Strawberry Sundae goes a little something like this:

Vanilla Ice Cream
Fresh Strawberries cut into slices and mixed with the ice cream
Strawberry wedges surrounding the edge of the bowl
A dollop of whipped cream topped with a whole strawberry
A light amount of chocolate syrup
A sprinkling of freshly grated hershey's chocolate
Just the tiniest bit of dotted sprinkles in the center.

Any and all cherries I find will be thrown away! Or given to a friend who likes cherries at least.

Thanks for reading!
