Experiment results from tonight

Caramelized oranges with french vanilla ice cream: A good deal of work for an only OK flavor. They taste pretty much exactly the way you would imagine them to. While I could imagine some ways to improve this, (e.g., instead of the simple orange-caramel sauce, do something a good deal more alcoholic) it’s not obvious that the work is worth the effort.

Sage chicken and rosemary potatos: Yum. I need to cook more often.

  3. Hmm. Alternatives:
    Cut up an apple. Mix sugar and cinnamon to taste in a little bit of water. Douse apple in water mixture. Put in microwave for 30 sec to 1 min 30 seconds (you’re going for warm and gushy apples, and you may need to re-bathe it in the mixture). Apply this to vanilla ice cream. Quite tasty.
    Cut up left over pancakes into bite-sized pieces. Put in bowl and douse with maple syrup. Heat until syrup and pancake bits are warm, add vanilla ice cream.
    Fresh baked cookies and caramel sauce. You can get caramel from the produce section of the store this time of year–heat it up per caramel apple instructions while baking cookies. Pull out cookies (preferred are chocolate chip or white chocolate chip cookies) and place 2, hot, on top of ice cream. Douse in caramel sauce.

    Ooh, or you could cut up pears and brown them in butter with cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg. Add a healthy splash of port after they’ve browned just a bit (prefereably ruby port, but whatever – really you could just use a sweet red wine) and let that reduce. This would be delicious with ice cream, or you can serve it over pork. (It sounds wierd, but they really well together.) For ice cream I’d add a bit of sugar, maybe, and if you’re serving it over pork loin I’d do a tad more nutmeg.

    Either that, or perhaps some Gruyere…
