Food Friday

Ice cream. Who doesn't love ice cream?! When I say "ice cream" I include Popsicles, yogurt and sorbet. I don't know anyone who does not like ice cream. Last night turned into an ice cream night at our house and it was not planned....I love those kind of nights.



This is Randall's favorite ice cream place. His favorite flavor is served in the fall and winter, so he usually gets a gift card from someone for his birthday or Christmas, since those happen at that time of year. Last night he used one of his cards and got cake batter. (Yes, it is July and he still has a balance on a gift card...you have to know him to understand!) He let me have a bite and it was yummy. I like the birthday cake flavor better though because I love the icing and sprinkles. I was not in the mood for any, so I just took a few bites of his. He was glad, I am sure...more savings on that gift card! Bruster's is a popular place and they have excellent ice cream. Ours also serves Nathan's hot dogs...odd, but those are good too...and that is for another post!

I was so glad I did not partake in my own cup of Bruster's ice cream because I got a text later in the evening to meet my "whoo hoo girls" for some yogurt at 8:45. I felt so "happening" to go somewhere at 8:45. Just sayin! I am usually in pajamas by that time. We ventured out to a new place in town and I am now hooked!
Everything is nonfat and some things are even non dairy. The presentation and atmosphere were so fun and inviting. You get whatever you want and then they weigh it. I got a mix of red velvet, California twist and praline, and I then put a touch of crushed heath bar on top. It only cost $3.11. I was a little worried since the price was dependant on the weight! I got a light serving of all the flavors, but it was perfect and yummy. I will be visiting that place a lot! Randall is not a huge yogurt fan, so on ice cream nights we will have to make two stops!

Sadly, my sweet "whoo hoo", Stacee is moving next week. We met to soak her up one last time over yogurt. She was one of my first friends when I moved to town. I will miss her smile, her spunk, her motivation on the days I run, her style and her fabulous southern accent!

This little foodie has not been much on the food lately. After the stomach bug he acquired a cold. The poor little stinker can't get right! I love him though, and will clean up his vomit and snot forever if I have to! ha. He does love to lick a frozen orange push pop and I let him do so each night while he watches Wheel....he loves Wheel of Fortune. He claps for them, he squeals and he is usually asleep before the Bonus Round. I love my little fella, as if you couldn't tell!

Happy Food Friday!

Yes, who doesn't love ice cream, even in the form of a little stinker's vomit? Cute summer post!

I love ice cream too! I can totally relate to how you are feeling about Henry and not feeling well. Both of my girls have been sick twice this summer. At different times. That was not fun.
