Make this!

So what's a girl to do when her husband is off playing D&D? Make chocolate sorbet, that's what. Last night I was home alone (which I enjoyed) and I wanted to make something sweet but it was nine-million degrees outside and turning on the oven was the last thing I wanted to do. So I pulled out the ice cream maker and poked around online. Smitten Kitchen had a posting from exactly one year ago yesterday for Chocolate Sorbet from David Lebovitz's The Perfect Scoop. I happened to have all the necessary ingredients on hand so I got to making sorbet. I used up the last of the Hershey's Special Dark cocoa powder for this so it was extra dark and chocolaty. I licked the spoon and the bowl and the ice cream paddle and the bowl again - you get the picture. Even in non-frozen form it was damn good. It also took *maybe* 15 minutes to put together (not including the time for cooling the mixture, running the machine & freezing). It was even better when we dug into it tonight. Delicious. It melts quickly though but if you eat it as fast as I did that won't be a problem.And in further poking around online today I found Cake Wrecks. I'm probably the last person in the universe to see this but I have been reading it all afternoon and my ribs hurt from laughing so hard.
