Chocolate Ice Cream I Cannot Resist

I was craving ice cream so badly last night that I drove to 7/11 and got some. The husband wanted strawberry but Haagen Dazs {what I would normally get} doesn’t make it {or 7/11 doesn’t sell it} so I got Dreyers. The big ones. Strawberry for him {gross} and chocolate for me {yum!}. He had one bowl last night. I had one bowl last night. And one mounding spoonful. Our family has a certain knack for balancing an entire bowl’s worth of ice-cream on a spoon and eating it bite by glorious bite. Which is what I did today, three times. Yes, it’s a problem. Which is why if there is any ice cream in the house, it is not chocolate. Because I ate it already.

Also note that 7/11 is like 3 blocks away. Not full blocks, residential street blocks. I could have walked. But I didn’t. So there.

    So, are you craving ice cream for a reason 😉

    My usual fave is Breyer’s coffee ice cream, yum!! But right now I am pregnant myself and it hasn’t sounded good as of late.

    You just gave me a craving for chocolate ice cream, and I am now going to devour the pint of Ben & Jerry’s Chocolate Fudge Brownie ice cream that is in the freezer calling my name.

    I’m not the greatest chocolate ice cream fan, but I AM an ice cream addict & that chocolate tub looks glorious about about now!

    We have a 40degC day today – about 98-100F I think…

    ice cream it is for lunch!

    I love Rocky Road. Yummm….now I have a craving…I’d go out to my nearest 7/11 but I had McDonald’s for dinner, so I think that would add insult to injury. Must go eat an apple now…or something healthy!

    Ah ha ha! that’s awesome! I would have driven also – you can’t let it melt while walking back! Scratch that, I would have walked, but I would also make sure to take a spoon with me.

    Oh I wish I could eat all of that. I am lactose intolerant and never have pills to help:( So I literally only get like one scoop.

    Chocolate ice cream is the best…and I think it’s the right thing that you walked there…I mean you would have had to carry them home.

    And Dreyers? Is that a California brand? I haven’t heard of it.
