Ten Below Ice Cream

Ten Below Ice  Cream is located in New York City in China Town. It is a Thai Ice Cream shop that is a great place to go to with friends or family. This shop has many different flavors like Key Lime Pie, s’mores Galore, Cookie Monster, and many more.

When their ready to make your ice cream, they call you to watch. Let’s say I ordered the key lime pie ice cream, the ice cream maker firsts starts of with a lime and a graham cracker and chops them up fine on a freezing cold plate. He then adds a liquid that then freezes and turns into the ice cream. He works with the liquid mixture until it is smooth and frozen. Then he rolls the ice cream into small rolls and places them into a cup. After he makes the ice cream, he brings you to the toppings bar and you can choose which ever toppings you want. They even toast your marshmallow.

It is really cool to watch and DELICIOUS to eat.

 

 

Best Ice Cream

I Love ice cream so i go to lots of ice cream shops but only a few have really stood out to me. Ice cream to me has to be perfect because it is so easy to make. It needs to be creamy and not too sweet.

In this Photo me and my little sister are at Rimini in Vail. They have some of the most amazing gelato, and the most unique and best tasting flavors such as Soma, and Cake Batter. Also they have the BEST hot chocolate ever.

Mosquitos is the best ice cream store in Maine. They have some of the best flavors like Caramel Caribou and Bear Claw, which are my favorite flavors. They also give very generous scoops so i recommend the the 1/2 -1 scoop, which ends up being like two scoops. They can also turn any flavor into a milkshake.

Ten below has great ice cream and entertainment. They have multiple flavors and great toppings. See my blog post on Ten below for more info.

Big Gay Ice Cream is also in the main picture but it is not as good as the other ones.

 

Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is one of my families most important traditions. Every year, Thanksgiving gets more and more evolved. It is an all day event and my dad and I usually are the ones who cook  dinner, but my siblings also pitch-in. But because our family is cuban, we put our own twist to the traditional feast. I am usually in charge of the Hors d’oeuvres, the bread, some of the sides, and the desserts.

Every year we try new recipes. This year we made a goat cheese and caramelized onion flat bread. Also, I made homemade brioche bread that my aunt taught me how to bake. Last year my dad deep fried the turkey.

Some recipes are still the same like the bagel chips and ricotta. All the desserts have been the same as well as the butternut squash soup, the rice and beans, and the chorizo stuffing.

We always have family over such as my aunt and my grandparents. Sometimes our family will help us cook the rice and beans or the stuffing.

Family is a big part of our Thanksgiving, especially because it’s my grandmothers birthday on the 25th of November. We always celebrate it on Thanksgiving and we either make cupcakes or a cake for her.
