This week, to be quite honest, has been more about making a Flower Princess costume for our three year old than about cooking. We have ordered takeout both nights, my fingers have multiple stab wounds from the sewing needles, and there are wisps of pink and yellow tulle netting all over the place.

Even in the face of such adversity, one night we managed to make dessert.

Balsamic Drizzled Ice Cream

A few scoops best-quality vanilla ice cream
A spoonful of best-quality aged balsamic vinegar
Scoop ice cream into serving bowl. Drizzle with vinegar and serve immediately.

Now you too can be fancy even in the face of a busy weeknight, like the night before the pre-school Halloween parade.

Check out Conti, the family-run business in Florence’s Central Market that ships internationally. This is where I picked up my special bottle of Cherry Balsamic.
