Good Dessert Gone Bad

It's cold here in Ohio. Florida is six weeks away (I think). I'm in the process of emptying out my freezer. Today I had homemade pesto (made from my own basil) with pasta - for lunch and dinner. It was particularly good after a week of cabbage soup (lost 3.5 pounds - woohoo!).

After all that garlic, I was jonesing for dessert. I found one last orange pineapple slush in the freezer. See it there? Yay! With great anticipation, I waited for it to thaw. It was taking forever.

Desperate, I scraped off what I could. I tasted it. It was frozen butternut squash.

Now, even more desperate, I needed a squash chaser. But what? Then, I opened the refrigerator.

I free-based Hershey's syrup. It did the trick.

Looks like I'll be back on cabbage soup tomorrow. Don't let this happen to you.

This has been a public service announcement.


  1. I recommend labels made with a Sharpie and masking tape. It will prevent the need for a squash chaser in the future.

  2. thanks for the tip captian obviouse.
