Hey man! I hope you had a lovely day & have a lovely week! I was wondering what's your favourite ice cream flavour? And cereal brand? Or your favourite patisserie??? Sorry I really like food and food questions immediately came to mind. Other than that, do you have a favourite memory? Do you have a bucket list or anything you really want to do in the future?? Sorry this is like 21 questions but I just thought of a few I would love to ask :) I hope you have a great evening x
oh man i opened my ask box expecting to see nothing and i saw this and just?? thank you N. really thank you a lot u always got me.
i hope you have a lovely day and week, the loveliest, especially if you have anything annoying coming up. i really like salted caramel/mint choc chip/white chocolate tbh but Anythign without nuts is amazing thank you. also the cereal brand cookie crisp has my heart. patisserie means stuff like croissants right?? if so i think maybe chocolate croissant. i don’t know if cake counts as one. my favourite memory probably when i was young and my grandparents used to take me out of That Home and my grandma let me make a ‘sword holder’ out of an old cookie crisp box and we attatched it to my waist and i used to put my fairy wand in there and fight to get the princess who was my grandma. also when my grandparent’s had rose bushes by their house and i used to run past and my hand would get cut up but then it was like in sleeping beauty because the prince had to go through rose bushes to get the princess and i was like a super hero and i saved my grandma all the time. idk these memories were w my up mum’s side grandparents and we don’t talk much lmao but i used to be their Best aha. also all my favourite memories are from when i was young n fairy stories weird
i want to have the typical perfect relationship and talk to a mormon and dance around before i die and have fun
this was really nice thank you. sorry i rambled a bit. thank you so much
time for hot cocoa! how do you think Harry and Draco make their own cup of cocoa? I make mine with fake milk, chocolate (usually cocoa mix), cinnamon, vanilla, salt, and sometimes some chili flakes.
Draco is very particular about his hot cocoa, thank you very much.
The house elves always made it special for him growing up; milk, a tiny bit of sugar and finely grated Belgian milk chocolate. As he got older they made him more elaborate mixes with different chocolates (dark, semi sweet, white) and special add ins. Draco was particularly fond of dark chocolate with fresh mint leaves, white chocolate and peppermint, dark chocolate with anise, or super sweet milk chocolate simmered with fresh cinnamon sticks.
At Hogwarts the house elves made the most delicious, thick hot cocoa around and while it was delicious it wasn’t quite up to Draco’s standards. It always felt like it was lacking something.
Harry on the other hand was never allowed to have hot cocoa growing up. It was all for Dudley. So the first time someone slides a warm, rich mug of it to him in the great hall Harry nearly scalds his throat drinking it so fast because he’s never tasted anything so warm and sweet and comforting. As he takes the last drink he can’t help but think it tastes like he thinks a hug might feel like.
Later, after the war, when Harry and Draco start dating and eventually move in together Harry always makes the cocoa in the beginning because he likes to cook and it makes him happy. But he makes it very sweet and rich and while it’s delicious Draco thinks Harry might be trying to kill him with the sheer amount of sugar and chocolate he manages to squeeze into one small mug.
So one day when Harry gets home from work late Draco already has the cocoa made; milk, one sugar, a decent scoop of shaved semi sweet chocolate and a hint of orange liquor. Harry just raises his eyebrow at him over the rim of his mug because Draco never fixes anything in the kitchen so he isn’t sure what’s going on. But then he takes a drink and he can’t help the soft moan that comes out of his mouth because oh my god it’s so good.
And Draco just wraps his fingers around his own mug and trys not to smile too big as he takes a slow sip of his own.
And it becomes a bit of a game after that, because Draco had no idea he could get so much pleasure from making something for someone else. But he finds that he likes to experiment in the kitchen using different chocolates and different amounts of sugar and extracts and spices, delighting in the way Harry’s eyes light up and the way he sighs in pleasure every time Draco hands him a new concoction to try.
And later when they’re curled together on the couch, or in bed, their kisses slow and lazy Draco just smiles to himself again because he hadn’t thought anything could be more perfect than hot cocoa until he discovered the taste of hot cocoa on Harrys tongue, and he finds he likes that best of all.
Last night after dinner with friends, I asked G if we could have some late-night ice cream before going home. I’ve been wanting to try Farmacy at Bonifacio Global City for a while so it was the perfect time for us to drop by since it closes at 2am that day.
To our amusement, the place was still bustling when we got there, but fortunately we were able to get seats at the bar. Farmacy reminds me a lot of my favorite ice cream parlor as a student in the US called The Franklin Fountain. Old fashioned and sophisticated wooden shelves and seats, bottles of handmade sodas, ice creams of a variety of flavors, jars of cookies and bars, and yes, for those looking for alcohol, they have ice cream + booze combinations like the Rum and Coke Float.
G and I decided we would stick with double scoop ice creams for our first visit. I got to sample four flavors - Matcha Green Tea, Lemon Blueberry, White Chocolate Mint and Black Sesame, before I made my decision. I had the Matcha Green Tea and Lemon Blueberry ice creams topped with Roasted Almonds, while G had the Milk and Salted Caramel ice creams topped with homemade marshmallows (which were pillowy soft!!!). The flavors were very spot-on and not too sweet, but we found that the ice cream melted pretty quickly. Hopefully, that can be improved, but otherwise we were happy with our first visit here.
