    Mama Cee Jay's Note:

    Revenge is a dish best served cold. In this case its is a Lemon Pear Granita with Pomengranate Strawberry Sorbet. On their anniversary each year in Hades, Proserpina bids her servants, Hell's Belles, to prepare this tasty and devilicious dessert so that she may serve it to her mate, Pluto. Pluto consequently gets a bit tipsy from the various alcoholic ingredients, so that Proserpina is then able to escape for some time and go up and visit her mother Ceres, Earth Goddess. Invariably they spend time hiking, swimming, gardening, cooking and creating new recipes until it is time for Prosepina to retreat to the underworld and back to catering to the whims of Pluto. Being Goddess of the Underworld is no easy task, but fortunately Prosepina has her caring and dutiful servants, the beautiful and cunning Hell's Belle's to assist her.
