Guest Post: Tryst and the Sundae Date Night

Tryst is on her way to becoming some sort of semi-domestic goddess, and she returns with a delicious snack plan I'm eager to try out. And let it be known: she may be the only person who's allowed to call her husband 'hubby' without pushing me towards instant nausea. Fact.  So, as I delve into the mass chaos that is Grant Park during Lollapalooza, I'll let her show you how quick desserts are done...

Dinner and a movie was once a very common date night for me and the hubby. But a wriggly baby does not make for a pleasant theater going experience so our date nights have become quiet nights in. But, you can't really call it a date night if it is just like every other night. So, I came up with this sundae to add a dash of fun and romance to our Netflix and RedBox evenings. 

Salty, buttery popcorn is wonderful on its own. However, I like to add some chocolate or caramel to sweeten things up. My husband hates buttered popcorn (he prefers sugared) so we compromise with kettle corn smothered in caramel and call it a day.
a generous handful of kettle corn
2 scoops of ice cream

a stream of caramel
1. Scoop ice cream into a chilled bowl. (I like to pop my ice cream bowls/glasses in the freezer for 30 minutes before eating).
2. Cover with popcorn
3. Drizzle with warm caramel 
4. Enjoy!

Our guest columnist and special fashion consultant Tryst is your one-woman guide to filmtastic styling, easy to spot on the sartorial street because of her excellent taste in tutus and expertise balancing in ridiculous footwear. With a degree in English and Biology, she is officially certified to make up both words and diseases, but prefers to make fashion judgments. While she does enjoy curling up on the couch with a movie and her English husband, she will be the first to tell you that pajamas belong on the inside…not outside…of your abode.  She blogs about real life things at Pond Crossings
