The craziness that is about to unfold started on the ppk boards, when Louzilla started a discussion about tater tots and ice cream, because someone had got to her blog by googling “tots à la mode”. We had to find out what that would be like! My only problem: There are no tots in Austria. And since they’re frozen, I can’t have any shipped to me either (thanks anyway, Meggs). The only solution: I needed to make my own tots!
Luckily, CNA found me this recipe, and I was all set to embark on the quest for… tots à la mode.
At night I (…cleaned my mobile…) reheated them in the oven and – ta da! – served them with soy vanilla ice cream. I really felt like adding some maple syrup, but I’d used that up making cookies, so I did the next best thing and brought out the pumpkin seed oil. (To those of you who have never tried vanilla ice cream with pumpkin seed oil: Do it!!) The tots à la mode experience was… interesting. Hot and salty / cold and sweet at the same time. I would never have done this without the ppk, so kudos to all of you. You’re constantly keeping me from going sane.
