There’s a long-running joke among coaster enthusiasts that all worthwhile rumors about parks come from … The Dippin’ Dots Guy. Because nearly every park sells that beloved treat and nearly every park has secrets to keep.

For today’s podcast episode, we got The Dippin’ Dots Gal – Billie Stuber – on the horn and learned all about Dots – past, present, and future:

 

We started out the morning the right way:

Those Dots were packed in dry ice (also a treat to anyone with STEM interests) and were ready to enjoy:

We oohed and ahhed over Johnathon’s bacon dish

Here’s why:

Oh, and The Coaster Crew gave us a lot to talk about:

I didn’t get to tell my Brussel sprouts story: Shortly after we were married, some of Gary’s relatives dropped by from Louisville, with the makin’s for supper. Including frozen Brussel sprouts.

Gary eyed them with suspicion. Getting ready to steam them, I whispered, “Don’t worry, they’re just like little cabbages.”

My cabbage-loving husband has never forgiven me for that trick.

Maybe we just need to use Matt’s recipe:

Matt’s Brussel Sprouts
Basically, you take about 24 Brussel sprouts, cut off the stems and loose leaves. Shred them. Fry bacon until it is crisp. Take bacon out and then saute about 1/4 cup of onions and 3 or 4 cloves of garlic until the onion is soft. Then add the sprouts. Add a couple tablespoons of lemon juice, and salt and pepper to your liking. Then add the bacon back in and stir until sprouts are softened. Sometimes I will add a few splashes of soy sauce or teriyaki sauce for a little kick.
