In the Form of a Milkshake

Although I visited Sebastian’s during the holiday season, it was noticeable there were so few restaurants and shops open at the mall, almost outnumbered by the seemingly unoccupied spaces.

Leche Flan Ice Cream Sandwich | Daily Prompt: You, the Sandwich

If a restaurant were to name something after you, what would it be? Describe it. (Bonus points if you give us a recipe!) “Mati” would be an ice cream sandwich. But not just any old ice cream sandwich, mind you! First off, with the star of the show: leche flan ice cream. Yes, there is…

Summer Wars | Daily Prompt: Singin’ in the Rain

Safe inside, toasty warm, while water pitter-patters on the roof… describe your perfect, rainy afternoon. The kettle whistles. I go to turn off the stove. With a kitchen mitt, I pick up the hot kettle and pour the water into my mug. I stir in the hot chocolate and milk with a dash of cinnamon…
