I love ice cream. In fact, if I bought some and kept it in my house I would eat it every night. That is how tempting it is to me. About a year ago when I started getting serious about my health and exercising each day I gave up ice cream. I think I have maybe had it twice in that time (both times from Dairy Queen so that I wouldn't be tempted to have "just one more bowl").
Tonight my kids really wanted ice cream and I relented. I'll be honest....I was pretty easily convinced. So, I asked my husband to stop on the way home and pick up a couple of pint sized ice creams (they were on sale for 90 cents a piece). He calls from the store and starts listing off the flavors. We are pretty plain in our family. Our daughter eats vanilla and our son chocolate. My husband and I like pistachio, cookies and cream, or rocky road.
I swear there are like a million flavors of ice cream now and they are all random flavors. Whatever happened to the old school regular flavors from my childhood? Why does each ice cream have to have a mixture of 27 different ingredients? Seriously. If I wanted very cherry mint chocolate chip or chocolate-caramel turtle crunch I was set, but just a simple cookies and cream? Virtually impossible.
