You caught me. I'm just setting up my afternoon break. Today I'm having coffee to which I'll add a ton of half and half.
I should show you this is a small bowl in the set called "Ye Olde Curiosity Shoppe." It was the set my grandmother always used between Thanksgiving and Christmas, and I have continued the tradition. There is a slightly larger bowl for salad, and it has a different design.
I have two creamers and one sugar bowl with lid still intact. I understand those are more difficult to find because they often get broken. Although I remember my grandmother having a gravy boat and tray, I couldn't find it when I brought the set home after she died. So I use the extra creamer to hold gravy each year. I admit I didn't realize the shape of the handles until I saw the cup and creamer side by side. And to think I've looked at these dishes all these years.
I'm now ready to eat my afternoon snack, which is spumoni. Like eggnog, it seems to be a seasonal item. Spumoni which I can only find during the holidays, most likely because of its green and red color combinations, puts me in the mood for winter and Christmas. The weather has already changed severely, so I don't need much of a nudge.
Some may confuse this bowl of deliciousness with Neapolitan ice cream. I am NOT a fan of Neapolitan ice cream, which is chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry. The only thing I like in Neapolitan is the chocolate. Not so with spumoni, which is a delicacy. Spumoni contains pistachio with crushed nuts, chocolate with tiny bits of shaved chocolate and hazelnuts, and cherry with bits of cherries, peaches, and nuts. Spumoni incorporates both fruits and nuts in addition to the cherry, chocolate, and pistachio ice creams. In my opinion, this combination makes this ice cream wonderful.
Now you know what I'm enjoying this last Tuesday before winter officially begins, so it's time to show what you are enjoying this week. It can be photos, movies, postcards, books, sketches, mixed media, drawings, paintings, scrapbooking, or other art that is digital, hybrid, or traditional, as long as it in some way relates back to a drink, any drink. Regardless, please share below and Bleubeard and I, along with the rest of the T gang will be by to visit.
