We met Simply Beautiful at their church on Sunday and later went to their home for brunch of Filipino specialties brought by her husband from the Philippines.
The dishes appealed to Filipino taste and as a friend would say, would not be worth mentioning in perfumed conversations. You know what I mean but they gave us a taste of home and for a while they transported us to another place where the sun shines bright and the ocean beckons while one would watch from the shade of a palm tree.
We were so full by the time we parted and then we dropped by at the mall for some shopping. Tired from walking around looking to unload the calories, we decided to end our trip with a stop at Oberweis for ice cream. I was burping our past meal so it called for a dessert. Besides a great meal always ends with something sweet, right?
Not much of a sweet tooth person, am always on the look out for tropical flavors. The mango and pomegranate sherbet seemed to be the perfect medicine for a full tummy and to cleanse our palate.
It worked as expected – the combination of tangy and lightly sweetened concoction was sublime. A worthy reward.
