if you ever go get ice cream with my mom be prepared, the woman brings her own pecans with her. she never wants a whole chocolate sundae with all the nutty topping, cherries, ,etc. so she’ll order a small cup of vanilla with chocolate sauce and then a quick rummage through the purse and volá, a Tupperware container of chopped nuts to add to her ice cream. for mother’s day i thought of this and whipped up some homemade hot fudge and roasted some pecans for my mama. now all she has to do is just order a cup of vanilla.
