Entry: Forgotten Business Friday, June 25, 2004



I was so tired and antsy to get away from my computer last night, I forgot to wax poetic about how good my ice cream cones were! Just the cones. I think I covered the yogurt pretty well.

The cones are great. A lot of ice cream cones have a tendency to leak melted ice cream out the bottom, or get soggy. These ones did neither, though I guess a much warmer day might be a better test. Sugar cones are always too sugary for me, and waffle cones are always too styrofoamy. Hardy Mills cones are neither. They have a good, solid structure. The flavor is very mild. The texture is crunchy and toothsome -- probably due to the corn flour. I love what cornmeal and corn flour do for baked goods.

Hardy Mills Organic "Wholesome Waffle Cones" aren't the cheapest treats in the world -- about $3 for a box of 6, but there are only two of us, and we don't eat that much ice cream. They're an affordable indulgence. Next time, I think I'll try Stonyfield Farm's raspberry swirl yogurt. Mmm... raspberries. I'm also contemplating making some of my "pie parfaits" in these cones. Portable Pie Parfaits -- sounds like fun, doesn't it? I bought white chocolate pudding mix, and I have raspberries in the freezer. Mmm... raspberries.

If you live anywhere near Belfast and Searsport, Maine, you may remember a short-lived shop that sold "Pie Cones." Now they can only be found at a few fairs and festivals around the state (like the National Folk Festival). They are well worth hunting down. They're part of the inspiration for "Portable Pie Parfaits."

Just because I took the time to take this, and because technology allows, I'm going to leave you with one more picture of yesterday's yogurt cones...
