Last year my wife and I drove past a guy on the freeway who had just run his rig up onto the rail. He had just almost tilted it off the mountainside at one point and we passed him just as his rig came to a stop. The guy most likely tossed away the skivvies he was wearing that day !

Just thought I'd pop in and say Hey! It's going to be 105 degrees today but supposed to cool down next week.
We're right in the middle of starting up my wife's new business which is an Ice Cream concession trailer.
We're doing "dipped" Ice Cream instead of soft serve as I feel it tastes better and has more flavor options. We settled on Thrifty brand Ice Cream which is now sold at some Rite Aide stores (they bought out Thrifty) and they still use the signature tube scooper.
We're gonna do coffe/tea, Oasis Smoothies, shaved ice, etc and soups on "cold" days like soup max in Kalispell.
The company name is "two dips" btw...

Two Dips, haha, that's a real good one! Funny, relevant, AND easy to remember -- hard to beat that combo for a business name.

Thrifty used to sell really excellent fruit sherbet-flavoured ice cream at a very reasonable price. Then the price went up and the ice cream went away pretty much all over around here.

In plain vanilla, that cheap ($1/quart) "Swiss" brand ice cream is spectacularly good, especially with Rez's one-minute hot-fudge sauce. And when it melts, it turns into milk, not foamy goo, and it refreezes into ice cream, not slime. Reminds me of the ice milk Albertson's used to sell 30-40 years ago that was so good.

Rez's One-Minute Hot Fudge Sauce

mix well in this order, in a ROUND-BOTTOMED glass bowl:
1/2 cup sugar
1 heaping tablespoon cocoa
dash salt

enough evaporated milk to make a slurry like thin cream-of-wheat
(amount will vary depending on your weather and your cocoa)
1 large pat of butter
optional flavourings: dash of mint, hazelnut, vanilla, etc.

Microwave about one minute or until it approaches the desired thickness. Will thicken slightly as it cools (or thicken a LOT if you overcook it).

Serves two, one of whom eats out of the cooking bowl to avoid wasting any of the delicious ice cream/sauce combo. Recipe doubles gracefully but does not triple well. It is very rich, a little goes a long way.

Do not use a flat-bottomed bowl, it will burn the sauce because there's just not enough of it.

Another variant that is more work but even better, and almost exactly reproduces the old-fashioned hot-fudge sauce that breaks up and hardens a bit as it covers the ice cream:

Truly Disgusting Chocolate Sauce

(Fleischmann's margarine is no longer any good; use butter instead)

I even dug out my receipt from 2 weeks ago thinking I was mistaken. Nope, receipe confirms it.

Hey jimj......will you be standing by your wife when she sells stuff? You know, TWO dips.....hehe! (sorry, just couldn't pass it up) Best of luck! With the heat, you should do aok! Wear sunscreen and big hats!

We are experiencing high heat.....but it's hotter inland, so I am glad I'm by the coast..... We will have it for a few more days. I planted $100.00 worth of flowers (again) a couple of days ago, so this should help them take off..... So, we are having summer (finally) at the end of September.

Missoula won today.....against Sac State.....homecoming game.....

Heh heh, now all you need is matching shirts that each say "DIP" ...

I'm reminded of the time my former tenant and I were going to a dog show held on Halloween... got there, took off our coats, and discovered we were wearing identical T-shirts that said, "I'M WITH CREEPY"
