Dessert/ Dinner

Well Worth It

Well, I got my ice cream cone! And, boy, was it ever yummy and worth it! 🙂


Ryan and I had dinner at my parent’s like I mentioned before and even though everything was delicious, I saved room for dessert. My mom made grilled chicken with veggies, bbq shrimp, salad, grilled portobella mushrooms with sundried tomatoes and provolone cheese (I just had a tiny bite of this) and homemade mac and cheese.  I had a glass of red wine with dinner but for some reason have felt so dehydrated all day long so I’ve been guzzling water. I piled my plate high with food but didn’t eat everything you see. I didn’t eat the chicken, ate about four of the shrimp (they were large), ate my roll, my mac and cheese, most of the green beans and my salad.


Then…we went to Abbotts—my favorite ice cream place ever! They specialize in frozen custard and their Chocolate Almond is sooooooo good. I had a “small” cone, which wasn’t that small if you ask me. Ryan had a chocolate shake but we both agreed my chocolate custard with bits of toasted almonds was the winner. Mmmmmm

I’m ready for bed!

    dinner looks so good! I can’t believe that’s a small! When I first saw it I thought you decided to go for the jumbo! Around here a small gets you about 2 bites of ice cream : (

    everything in that dinner looks fabulous, especially the “grilled portabella’s with sundried tomatoes.”
    And what is the difference between custard and ice cream?

    Apparently, frozen custard contains more eggs but less fat and sugar than regular ice cream. I’m pretty sure it contains egg yolks, whereas ice cream contains the entire egg. It tastes a little lighter as well and is served soft-serve.


    I do have an ice cream maker actually! Its at my parent’s house right now and if you ask Ryan what the best thing I’ve ever made is, he will surely tell you its the Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter ice cream cookie sandwiches I made for his birthday last September………they were good. 🙂

    Hey Jenna!

    I’ve just started reading your blog and I love it! I go to the University of Tampa and I always recognize all of the restaurants you go to when your there! My friends and I always walk to Hyde Park to get Abbotts and look in Anthropologie ofcourse! Just thought I’d share =)
    Oh and have you ever been to Gallery Ecletic Bistro in International Mall? It looks like a place you might enjoy!
