I have been very busy going to the VA for physical therapy, trying to regain a full range of motion and my strength, enough to walk and hopefully get back on my two wheeler. My therapist tells me I am making progress. But, that I have a long way to go. In my younger days, I spent a significant amount of time as a gym rat. As a matter of fact, my last duty assignment, I was the Command Fitness Coordinator and Gymnasium Manager at the Fleet Anti Submarine Warfare Training Center, in San Diego, California. Having this in my past, is helping me to recover, rather than discover my health. rare word to the wise:
DO IT WHILE YOU'RE STILL YOUNG.
OR AT LEAST START TODAY.
YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT OBSTACLES YOU'LL NEED TO OVERCOME IN YOUR FUTURE
I'll be blogging sporadically until I either get up and be gone like the breeze. or I come to the realization that what once was, will never be again. Once I reach that tipping point, I'll reconsider the direction of my life and my blog. But until then, THANK YOU, for your support, friendship and encouragement...
I hope you noticed the recent addition to my sidebar.
the advert for Roba Dolce Gelato.
In return for posting that advert for one month, the good people at Roba Dolce agreed to send me some samples of their products.
When I returned home from PT on Wednesday, there was a large frozen goods shipping container on the front porch, from Warwick, Rhode Island.
I was expecting 1 or 2 single serving containers at best. This particular box was much too large for something so meager as a couple of 6 oz cups of
ice cream Gelato.
The box contained four 6 oz cups of frozen confectionery. And five large 36 oz cartons of my JUST DESSERTS.
Flavors of the small containers were:
Raspberry, Almond Fudge
All four were delicious. The Raspberry, Almond Fudge was surprisingly, the best of the four. Despite my preferences for simple pleasures, I do have an educated epicurean palate. And in my world travels I have sampled foods of all sorts, flavors and descriptions. I have been to Valencia, Spain and have seen and eaten true Valencia Oranges. They are extremely sweet and the pulp and juice is "BLOOD RED" in color.
The Roba Dolce Blood Orange Sorbeto was excellent, and placed a close 2nd behind the RAF.
Next in line of my favorites was the Lemon Sorbeto. Tart and tangy.
The Mango was good. But rather disappointing. Domestic Mangoes don not have the same level of flavor or sweetness as the ones found in Central and South America. And the mangoes from the Caribbean Island of St. Vincent are so sweet that when the juice dries on your hands, sugar remains.
The 5 large containers have the same 4 flavors, with the addition of CHOCOLATE CHUNK. But since I don't eat Chocolate, my review will be second hand.
