Something's cooking in Apartment 205.

Our version of the F–k-it Bucket: Ice Cream Sundaes

In by Amy, The Everyday Foodie, This is Why John's Fat. on August 21 at 10:10 am

Cooking time: 35 minutes for the brownie, 5 minutes to assemble | Originally enjoyed on: 8/6/2009

What’s the best way to end a crazy day at school (for Amy and guest foodie Charmaine, it was an 8 page paper, 20 minute group presentation, quiz, AND 2 page paper on Philip Morris)?

Ice cream sundaes, of course!

Ice cream sundaes, our version of the "f--k it bucket."

Tired of school and not wanting to think about work the next day, John, Charmaine, and I went down to Safeway (24 hours, yipee!) to collect our materials:

  • Brownie mix
  • Vanilla ice cream
  • Oreos (we had to go with Safeway’s organic generic…these were terrible. If you’re going to go generic, go for Trader Joe’s brand, which is far superior)
  • Smucker’s Dark Chocolate Fudge
  • Whipped Cream
  • Frozen berries

Bake the brownies, assemble your sundae to taste, and enjoy.

For those of you who haven’t read David Sedaris, we highly recommend you listen to a piece of his on NPR/This American Life, or pick up a book of his essays. Our apartment favorite is “You Can’t Kill the Rooster,” in Me Talk Pretty One Day (listen to it here: skip to 11:06 if you don’t have time to listen to the whole thing. A warning: contains some profanity).

In the story, Sedaris writes of his brother’s brilliant concept, the “f–k it bucket,” a bucket filled with bite-sized candy bars and jawbreakers. “When sh-t brings you down, just say ‘f–k it’ and eat yourself some motherf—ing candy.” As bigger fans of ice cream sundaes, we decided to make those instead.

John made a particularly fancy design on his sundae.

John, in a particularly “avant garde” moment, also decided to create this artsy-looking concoction: melted dark chocolate fudge with whipped cream.

This is why John's fat: not for the clogged-hearted or the health-concious.

Anyway, just a little glimpse into what we at 205 do for fun when we’re feeling down. :)
