On the basis that it's too hot to cook.

summerskittles91 Wed 20-Jul-16 16:48:48

Do it.

2nds Wed 20-Jul-16 16:50:24

Lol what flavour?

BusStopBetty Wed 20-Jul-16 16:51:55

We have Magnums, Twix ice creams, ice pops, mint choc chip, and vanilla.

Of course.

Rare hot days are like Shrove Tuesday aren't they? Savoury rules do not apply.

Depends. In this house DS1 and DH would have a conniption fit as although they eat ice creams now and then neither one has a sweet tooth. They'd much prefer a peanut butter sandwich or cheese and grapes for dinner.

DS2 would eat all the ice cream. In the world.

Nope. Wish I'd thought to do the same grin

2nds Wed 20-Jul-16 16:58:50

Ooh mint choc chip :-)

That's a veritable banquet BusStop
Certainly not unreasonable in any way.

Yum!!! We've got left over pizza and salad. Can I come round for tea at yours?grin

If everyone would be happy with it, go ahead. I'd not like it myself (I'm a Ben and Jerrys girl anyway). I would always choose and actual dinner over ice cream, even just a sandwich or beans on toast, but you know your family!

Serve it with salad and a cold sausage as a flake and you have a lovely balanced meal.

BusStopBetty Wed 20-Jul-16 17:06:06

I've graciously offered to make sandwiches as well. I may even slice some cucumber.

My DC have got chicken wraps as I roasted a chicken yesterday yes on the hottest day of the year, no I don't know why so some chopping of crudités to go in said wraps and I am done! Icecream for pudding though, good idea OP

Jenijena Wed 20-Jul-16 17:07:41

YABU. You should also provide ice lollies, for choice.

and Pimms, but that might be pushing it

WhirlwindHugs Wed 20-Jul-16 17:09:12

We've had ice cream and jelly...

It's the last day of term, it's super hot, normal rules do not apply!

ILostItInTheEarlyNineties Wed 20-Jul-16 17:13:28

Helena If it makes you feel any better, I'm roasting a chicken tonight. I must have taken leave of my senses grin it's so warm in my garden, I could probably have left on the path to cook. The house is now a furnace.

HemanOrSheRa Wed 20-Jul-16 17:15:59

Hehe! I roasted a chicken yesterday Helena. DS requested a roast dinner after his year 6 play performance last night. In a foolish fit I agreed confused.

I did think about serving just raspberry ripple ice cream and strawberries but DS eats like a horse at the moment and would be horrified at that. So we are having peri peri chicken and salad AND raspberry ripple ice cream for pud.

I feel better! Tea tonight was a breeze and makes me feel better about suffering yesterday.
