    And no Cashew nuts? Blasphemy.

    I tried reversing the order of operations (ice cream first, root beer second). It cuts the foam by maybe 1/3 (so I still get most of the foam). I've tried this before many years ago, and I settled on trying to pour carefully. Now that I see it in action though, I think that pouring carefully enough is just not possible. The foam is just a reaction between the ice cream and the root beer and there's just not any getting around it.

    So what kind of acid are we talking about?

    :lol:

    I was thinking lemon or lime juice, which would probably work better with a standard caramel cola than root beer.

    Like I said, I embrace the foam. I'd make Coke floats and cream Cokes when my daughter was younger, and we'd race to clear out all the bubbles by sucking them through a straw. That meant we were sucking lots of air which invariably led to burping, and that's obviously fun(ny) when you're a kid or a kid at heart.

    The foam is not so bad with root beer. But I actually find the taste of the coke foam to be kinda nasty. I end up scooping it out with a spoon, which is maybe the easiest way to handle it. I used to put lemon in coke (back when I drank more coke). It goes well. I should try it with a float.

    Citrus and vanilla are a nice pairing as well (go figure that there's both in Coke). You could try a lemon sherbet so that you get the acid already emulsified with the cream and it may be less likely to curdle as a result, or skip the cream entirely with a sorbet. The latter may not yield a stable head if it's indeed something about the cream itself that causes it.

    Whatever you do, don't put Sweet n Low in those Bubly drinks. You CANNOT control those bubbles.

    Made that mistake at work.

    Decided to celebrate my 40th birthday with some chilli cheese fries. 1.25kg of it, to be exact. :lol:

    Beers and the obligatory cake not pictured.

    I believe I have never had Chilli in my life. I see GTP members eating it and liking it. I see it many times on TV — American TV series. I think I have to try and make chilli and see if it is as good as I think it is.


    I don't feel like having a proper breakfast, so I grab some things now and then. So far a few cashew nuts (:sly:) and a piece of my father's chocolate bar.

    I am liable to catch hell from other Texans, but I think the best chili is made with ground beef and pinto beans.

    I think I'm going to make pumpkin soup today. Also, rice with curry sauce and a Turkey filet.

    Probably Pizza for lunch.

    I just had two pieces of bread with jam. I still don't know how to call that correctly in English.

    I had so much chocolate (93% dark chocolate) that I was wide awake when I went to bed last night. It took ages to finally fall asleep. I knew this could happen and still I did it.

    I have the last piece of dark chocolate right here ready to be consumed. :lol:

    Moussaka for lunch.

    Had other plans for dinner, but with the bit of a heatwave we're having here I wasn't very hungry.

    Dinner ended up being an heirloom tomato I got from my mom and some thick sliced bacon strips.

    Glad I'm not the only one this happens to. I have to get cooled down pretty significantly before I regain appetite.

    Last night I had left over deli meat of honey ham. And this morning I finished off the turkey.

    Not that I'm against walnuts, but do you think it would be alright with pecans?

    Also what kind of portion? Handful?

    About a handful is a good guess, but I poured from a freezer bag so I can't say for sure. Most anything would probably work fine, but I wanted to balance the sweet ice cream and sweet whiskey with a little bitterness.
