Tim had a serious thing


Ice cream.

No matter the flavor

It was something

He’d favor.

His mama thought it


To hold a lone food


So she came up with

A scheme

That worked wonders on


Every new food she’d

Mix right into the

Ice cream.

So she fixed it with okra

And kale

And some beans,

And added an olive

And handfuls of


And for his dessert

Even mashed in


And the boy ate the lot

Smiling full to the


It was not until college

He caught on to the





For RDP Sunday: Ice Cream

  1. Errrhhh. Somewhat like my mother hiding foods I didn’t like in my mashed potato. Still didn’t like them. Put me off potatoes too. Maybe she did it with icecream too cos I don’t like that, not unto this day

    • Oh-oh … I knew Tim’s mama was up to no good … Fortunately it seems Tim’s taste buds were nonexistent … but I totally get the annoyance (and the betrayal, almost) of having foods one does not like, sneaked into foods one loves. At least not as a practice …
      But, oy to not liking ice-cream! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

      • Yeah, I have a friend who cannot stand the texture and temp of ice-cream, and never understood the lure of it. They find it overall too rich and too sweet.
        I do like ice cream, but I’m picky about which ones I can have more than a bite or two of. The very rich ones are not enjoyable for me and I tend to prefer the milk-based ones over the cream-based ones, or sorbet over too-rich ice-cream.
        As people say, to each their own … and we’ll leave the sardines ice cream to Tim … ๐Ÿ˜‰


      • ๐Ÿ˜€ Just comes to show, people are not all cut from the same cloth, and we should each have space for our taste preferences whenever possible. Here’s to yummy foods, whichever ones they are for any one of us! (I know a toddler who prefers pickles and broccoli to cookies or chocolate, and it is just as well, perhaps, health-wise!)
