Mascarpone and cinnamon ice-cream

IMG_1312

I had a big to do list today and as clock is moving towards school pick-up time, my list has been barely touched. I started off with great intentions, first thing this morning I headed off for a massage and boy was it good. Maybe a little too good I came home all relaxed and really very unenthused to start attacking my list well!!!! there is always tomorrow :-).

So while talking about things that make you feel good this Mascarpone and cinnamon ice-cream is one of them, smooth, rich and creamy even now in winter this ice-cream is a pure pleasure to eat. Delicious all on its own which is how I had it yesterday for my lunch, yeah  I know not too healthy. But I rationalised this by all the hard work I did afterwards in the garden, busily pruning back my fruit trees (also why I needed that massage today I’m just a wee bit sore) that would of definitely had to burn of a few calories (well thats what I’m telling myself anyway :- ).This ice-cream also works amazingly as an accompaniment to poached fruit. I made some delicious poached pears in red wine served with the mascarpone and cinnamon ice-cream, which we had for dessert, post coming soon, I have also served this ice-cream with poached quince and a plum tart.
