The Happiness of Fruit Salad with Vanilla Ice-Cream
100 Days of Happiness – Day 54
Since as far as I can remember, I’ve had a sweet tooth. In college days, I used to go to the society shop on campus and buy the 5 rupee Dairy Milk chocolates every day. To have them melt in my mouth was one awesome feeling (still is). My fondness for chocolate was so well known among my friends that one of them treated me to a Cadbury Temptations (Almond and Rum) packet on his birthday. I finished that off in about 15 or 20 minutes, I think.
But chocolates are one thing, ice creams are another! If there was a dessert that I would have day in day out without feeling bored, that’d be fruit salad with ice cream. There’s this nice place in my neighborhood that has been around since my childhood. It’s famous throughout Bangalore as well. When I visit there, I have fruit salad with ice cream always (or mango milk shake, depending on the mood). Of course, we decided we’ll do that at home too.
Happiness is… having fruit salad with ice cream, even on a rainy night, and enjoying it a lot. It took a couple of attempts to get the fruit to ice cream ratio right though. Not a big loss. We ate the trial runs too of course!
