Cantalope and Cream Bowls

The Pacific Northwest (USA) is a very sociable place; gatherings with friends and family outdoors are common. Lawn games, hikes and other outdoor activities feature. Here's a dessert treat I often make for such events - a cool refreshing, though messy, treat to be enjoyed outside. One of our very young family friends calls "cantaloupes" - the melons - "antelopes" - which brings all kinds of wordplay to my mind. So I've playfully adjusted the melon spelling accordingly because "Antelopes and Ice Cream" is too.... well, never mind.
