IBOL Sundae

September 6, 2009

Are you having ice cream today, with outrageous toppings and a too-big spoon? Send me the photos or the link! I’ve got new photos I am adding to the SuperSauce page, and there’s already one link, here, from participants here in Iraq.

Also, regarding the Over the Hump postinghere is a better Google link to all kinds of things related to IBOL. Forget a few hundred responses, this has a few thousand responses.

Which, strangely, is very much like the bundles from IBOL, too. Thousands, I am sure.

IBOL SuperSauce

I have heard your cries, and I have an answer.

In support of IBOL Sundae, it is time I share the IBOL SuperSauce. When made to the below listed scientific standards, it can produce blindness. First developed by Hammurabi around 1703 BCE, it was considered his finest work and the pinnacle of his career until he got all crazy about the rules and stuff and started to write them down, too. Apparently, my dad and Hammurabi were buds and use to sit around and pass the time, eating ice cream with IBOL SuperSauce; that’s how it became a family favorite. [UPDATE: Super big thanks to CA Sister for the photos!]

Bittersweet Hot Fudge Sauce IBOL SuperSauce

4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
1 cup sugar
¾ cup evaporated milk
½ teaspoon vanilla

1 ingredients


1. In a double-boiler, with water simmering in the lower part, melt the unsweetened chocolate in the upper part.

2 melt chocolate

2. Stir in the sugar.

3 melted chocolate with sugar

3. Cover, and with water simmering in the lower part, leave on the stove for 30 minutes. Stir once or twice.
4. VERY SLOWLY add the evaporated milk and vanilla while stirring. (Hint: I put the vanilla in the milk can and pour from there.)

4 slowly add evaporated mild

5. Give a spoonful to the husband, you know, just to make sure it’s OK.

Refrigerate or freeze leftovers. Reheat in microwave as needed. (e.g. put a large spoonful in a dish, microwave on high for 15 seconds.)

Doubling the recipe works well. Best eaten with ice cream, but come on — it’s so good, you’re going to try some just with a big ol’ spoon, like it’s Nutella or something.

And remember:

1. IBOL Sundae is…. Sunday.
2. Tuesday is the last day for getting boxes in the mail.
3. Make sure you’re using an address that includes “211th RSG” in it.

(This is the old IBOL 1 stuff — you can ignore it now)

IBOL Sundae

September 4, 2009

By the power invested in me, by the teeming masses of IBOL Supporters, I do hereby make the following degree:

1. This Sunday shall henceforth be known as IBOL Sundae;

2. This Sunday, IBOL Sundae, shall be celebrated with elaborate ice cream treats, preferably in a bowl and garnished with outrageous toppings before eaten with a spoon that is much too big;

3. Supporters of IBOL Supporters, to include but not limited to husbands, wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, significant others, kids, and kittehs, shall be honored for their support of the IBOL Supporters by also be gifted with elaborate frozen dairy product concoctions;

4. And in keeping with the finest quilting and knitting weekends, photos of these whimsical yet scrumptious creations shall be taken before and during consumption, and shared liberally across these interwebs things.

Celebrate in the greatness that comes with being an IBOL Supporter, and in the glory of the wonder of the weekend. You have certainly earned it, and for someone of you, you may need the extra energy because it sounds like you have a lot of boxes to mail on Tuesday.

Me, I’ll be packing it in, getting ready to manhandle the 14,000 boxes that are apparently headed this way. What’s the old saying? Oh, yeah — “Eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow you may work at IBOL World Headquarters.”

And remember — stuff in the mail on the 8th is A-OK!
