Bucket List: Fried Ice Cream

I love my bucket list!  If you’ve followed me for a bit, you are well aware of this, if you haven’t, well you can catch up HERE.

I’m excited to announce that I finally crossed this latest item off – it’s been driving me nuts!  Fried Ice Cream!  When did it become so hard to find?

Bert picked me up (for a lunch meeting) and we went downtown to a nice restaurant that, per Google, was supposed to have fried ice cream.  We were seated and I picked up my menu and immediately asked “Where’s the desserts?”  The waitress looked a bit taken a back and Bert started to laugh.  Really? I’m the very first person you’ve ever had that asked for the dessert menu before they ordered?  Other people need to get on the ball! How do you know what to order if you don’t know what you are saving room for?!?

Anyway, she brought me the dessert menu and my jaw hit the floor… “where is the fried ice cream?”  Oh, they don’t have it. “No, you don’t understand, Google says you do!”


So, to comfort myself, I ordered a margarita.  And chicken fajitas.

As we were wrapping up lunch and were done discussing business, I looked at Bert and said “You know, I think we have to make a pit stop on the way home.  I know another place to try.”

And we did – it was just one block north of the freeway and there were two restaurants that it could have been.  We walked in the first one and struck out. I walked in the second one and then ran back to his truck and grabbed my purse and told him to get inside!

I took this pick of me and Bert so that you could see the fact that we are in an Asian restaurant. Well that and the fact that we are so good looking!

You don’t expect to see this on the table at the place you are about to eat fried ice cream!

Oh my goodness… doesn’t that look yummy!

I got caught sneaking a pic of Bert enjoying a bite!

This was awesome!  I’m so glad I was able to cross it off my bucket list and even more importantly, I’m so glad that I have friends that are willing to help me out!
