Suzi had a problem.
She had a bunch of apples that had just about reached the end of the line.
Her solution? Apple crisp.
The crisp was good — especially after we warmed it in the microwave to soften up the apples a little bit — but there was another problem, because there was something … missing.
The solution for that problem was vanilla ice cream, which by itself is basically ice cream for people who are desperate for ice cream, but works perfectly as a base for something else or accompanying apple crisp.
However, this caused another problem. We finished the crisp long before we finished the ice cream, so what were we going to do with most of 1 1/2 quarts of vanilla ice cream … and the chocolate ice cream Suzi bought at the same time?
It turns out that the solution to that particular problem is chocolate fudge, caramel fudge, cherries (at least for her) Reese’s Pieces and whipped cream.
Sure, ice cream sundaes present a problem for my waistline — one of a couple problems of that type I’ll have to solve before my physical in July — but if your problem is a blah kind of day that could really use a pick-me-up, they really hit the spot as a solution.
And then … Suzi found another problem. There were too many lemons in the refrigerator.
How do you think she solved that one?
Tasty, delicious lemonade.
