[Comments] (4) : John and I made Fried Ice Cream tonight. Essentially, you scoop the ice cream into balls, roll it in cornflakes and deep fry it. It was yummy, but too much work for every night.

I painted my toenails orange. They have been naked for quite sometime, and I thought it was about time they had some fun. I also painted nine of my fingernails. The tenth hidden under a Band-aid, due to an unfortunate incident this morning involving a tomato. And a knife. My goal in painting my fingernails is to embarrass myself by their obvious and atrocious shortness enough to stop biting them. Hey, it could happen.

Back when I worked in the dishroom, I was always accessorizing with Band-Aids. I went through a box at least every month. Of course, half of that was also biting my nails too much. I really need to stop.

I have been doing a LOT of data entry at work lately. I definitely think my ten-key is improving. The problem is that I already type faster than anyone in my department (we are stuck with this project because of the confidential nature), and that means more of it for me. I like being busy, but I get so bored sitting at my computer typing boring numbers for hours at a time. And to think I was looking for a data entry job. I am so lucky.

The ice cream doesn't melt at all? Did you use coconut? How do you deep fry it, in a wok? With what kind of oil?

Well, now, that's a story. The recipe said to dip it in hot oil for 1 second; but Susie didn't think that sounded right, and wanted 30 seconds. Well, after 10, the ice cream had melted. So about 3-5 seconds is good.

We did use coconut and brown sugar with the corn flakes as the outer crust. We deep fried it in a tall, skinny pot. That way we could dip the whole ice cream ball in without wasting much oil.

We used regular vegetable oil. I enjoyed it.

What John means by "Susie thought" is that every other recipe but the one he looked at said 15 seconds or longer. I'm not that irrational! It was very yummy though. John is a good cook.

Yummy! Fried ice cream, not nail biting :). The only thing that has (somewhat) kept me from biting my nails is thinking of all the germs and dirt and gross stuff that gets lodged underneath them. It works half the time. The other half I bite bite bite.
