I just made some icecream
2 cups cream
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder

Whip them together all until very stiff. (Takes 4-5 min)

Add little by little 1/2 cup milk, until the consistency is a bit softer. Or not, if you want the 'Parfait' rich taste.
Freeze.

The smoothest ice cream you will ever have. It never forms ice crystals. 
You only need the handheld mixer  (125 Watt/hour), no ice cream maker, so you can make it on the road too.
You can throw in a handful of sliced almonds or chocolate chips or both, if you want.

I really don't get the whole white vs yellow cornmeal thing,
Never eaten okra. My heart bleeds for you. That's terrible. I would eat okra every day but I like it so much that I'd shrivel up and die. Boiled okra has a laxative effect on me so I have to excercise restraint. Fried okra is amazing. I've even had freeze dried okra snacks. Okra pakora I think which is Indian. Pickled okra. So many ways to eat okra. I feel like Bubba from Forrest Gump describing all the ways to cook shrimp RN. Haha. 

As far as yellow vs white corn meal and white vs yellow grits and white vs yellow hominy there definitely IS a difference. Haha. I'm only a food snob about certain things. Corn bread. Grits. Name brand Ketchup and mayonnaise. No organ meats unless my iron is low. No seafood even though I want to like it. Except smoked oysters and again I only crave them when my iron is low. OH and RED HOTDOGS. They have to be red. I wont eat regular hotdogs. Oscar meyer ballpark nope. Even Nathan's kosher hotdogs I WILL eat at a costco food court and they're good. But they arent red. Maybe a few other quirks but other than that I'm pretty easy to satisfy food wise.

Okra milkshakes!

Yum!

Just kidding yall.

Hey, I ride down to the senior center on my bicycle and eat a $4 lunch once a week. Does that count as traveling for food?

Wink

Ummm! Fried okra dipped in ranch dressing... Wish I could get out to get some. It's been too long.

We all have our food snobbery things.
I hate McD's, really hate it. Hubby loves it.
I hate fishy foods. If I can taste the fish it's not good. But I like good bready fish and chips and REALLY well cooked, firm, fish in a really good restaurant.
I don't do carcasses. Nope, if it looks like an animals body, nope, not gonna happen. I hate cooking for thanksgiving, but it is family tradition so I can cook a turkey.
I forgot I have had okra once, 44 years ago. My then Mother in law made me a stew with okra in it the first time I ate there. I was 3/4 months preg. and it was slimly and I smiled and gagged it down. I forgot about that. But then again at that time it didn't take much to make me sick. That may have something to do with it. Maybe I will need to try the fried thing some time. …..Or not.
Hubby won't eat hot dogs, not for anything. He grew up in carny lots and saw to much of how they where treated way back then. I love corndogs fresh, hot, and drippin' a bit of grease.
I don't like my veggies cooked much I like them raw usually. Except onions grilled onions are so good, chopped, not stringy, but they don't like me back.
I can't stand stringy foods, green beans nope, stringy meats nope, stringy noodles, maybe if they are cooked enough, but prefer macaroni.
My cheese on pizza though should be stringy. 
Never had grits either, but since I have heard that grits here in the NW were not even a bit good I'll wait to eat those down south.


RE: traveling for food - B and C - 06-10-2020

Don't much care for okra any other way than fried.

Grits, never again. I've tried a couple of times, not just once.

I was dating a girl once that was from NYC. She had gotten some grits at Krystal (up north its branded as white castle but idk if they have anything in common other than the slider burgers) she didnt finish the grits and asked if I wanted them. Hellz yeah! One bite and I thought I was gonna die. She had put sugar in them. YUCK! There are 3 acceptable additions to grits. Black pepper, salt, butter. MAYBE a little hot sauce if you're feeling frisky.

The absolute best way to eat grits if you're at a diner is to use a crispy strip of bacon as a spoon and take a bite with bacon and grits together. It goes without saying there should already be pepper salt and butter in them. I have heard of putting honey in grits. I would TRY that. No promises. But table sugar? Nope.

Sugar in your grits? Sounds like baby food.
