You, Andrea, Babelbabe - who else is posting ice cream or gelato or any other frozen concoctions to torture me with.
Do you know what is in my freezer? Rice cream - that's what! Ick.

That sounds like something Scooby-Doo would say.
BUT...in my own freezer, of my own making, I have Key Lime sorbet which is the finest frozen treat known to humanity AND is also GFCF friendly.

I find it humorous that you think the crock pot pulled pork is brilliant when we housewives have been making that shit for YEARS.
Any sauce will do, if it doesn't suck (duh). I don't know that I've ever used the same sauce twice while making it.

gelato - cheeck
we do a mean tenderloin marinated in mr. daniels, brown sugar, soy sauce and some other stuff.
pulled pork? 10 hours smoked on the weber -
with a dry rub.
and then a homemade sauce.
why are we not talking about homemade sauce?

Now every time I open my freezer, I will be saying "rice cream" in my Scooby Doo voice.

1- I'm not allowed into Housewife Guild meetings, on account of my lack of a husband against whom to rail.
I have to figure these things out when vodka-absorbent members let things slip.
Still, that's brilliant, no matter if it's ancient.
2- We COULD talk homemade sauces, but it violates the whole pantry principle.
The hard part of homemade sauces is the difficulty of getting a smoky flavor thereinto (assuming the smoky flavor cannot be imparted because smoking is not possible/feasible). I use bacon drippings, chipotles and smoked paprika for those purposes.

So if your homemade sauce voilates the pantry principle, I'm guessing you don't make it with things like ketchup, canned chipotles in adobo, beer and/or liquid smoke? The way we housewives do?
There is so much I could teach you, Grasshopper.

No beer, no ::shudder:: liquid smoke. See next post on the issue.

I adore gelato but am afraid my palate was forever spoiled on the streets of Bologna. How snobby does THAT sound? I like mine fresh made on the premises that day. I'm always disappointed in storebought. I'm even disappointed in locally made, fresh. But, I'll never turn it down.

No, you're right. I believe they use either unpasteurized milk or milk that has been slow pasteurized, to retain more of that bovine goodness we know and love.
P.S. Modena's is better. :-)
