Sometimes I get a food idea so delicious I'm surprised I haven't thought of it before. Today it was ginger ice cream topped with warm rhubarb sauce.
I thought of it as I was making some rhubarb sauce. Mom was nice enough to bring some down for me last weekend. There was so much that I was able to freeze some for pie or rhubarb crisp next winter and make a lot of rhubarb sauce. As I was stirring my eyes panned the counter, looking at all of the things I need to pick up. After scanning the leftover cups from last weekend, allergy pills, recipe box, and recycling I came to the chunk of ginger root left over from last nights dinner.
I contemplated grating some ginger into the sauce, but was worried I would put too much in and ruin it. At that point I remembered that I have a pint of my new obsession Haagen Dazs Five Ginger ice cream in the freezer (only five ingredients, no guar gum or other funky ingredients). I decided to make a rhubarb sundae. It was amazing. I highly recommend it. I would invite you over for it, but it is far too good to share.
