(Update, 1:25 p.m. - Another brain freeze after lunch today.)
I made lemon verbena ice cream yesterday and ate some for dessert last night. It's one of my favorites, especially because I only make it once or twice a year.
(Lemon verbena is an herb with a lemony, grassy flavor. It's difficult to find in stores but luckily I grow it in my garden.)
The ice cream was great (if I may say so myself), but the second spoonful brought on a severe case of brain freeze. Coincidentally, there was a short article (the "Really?" column) in The New York Times earlier this week which discussed the phenomenon.
