I made homemade mint chocolate chip ice cream for a potluck.
Instead of using extract, I cut mint from our garden and steeped it in the cream. Rob was impressed. However, when it was time to eat it, he only had two bites. Everyone else cleared their plate. Someone pointed out he wasn't eating his ice cream and he replied, "It tastes of the earth."
Later, he said that was the politest way he could find to say it tasted like the dirt the mint plant grows in.
Really, Rob? How often do you taste the dirt in our front yard???
