Today I am writing my 1st "how to" post. I heard this helps draw people to your blog. You need to write something people will bookmark for reference.
I am only skilled in so many precious areas. I needed something bookmark-worthy. I wracked my Mommy Brains until I came up with...
This is a very informative post. Or an admission of a serious addiction. Either way, it does not change my sincere love and appreciation for ice cream and its proper preparation.
Ice cream is my must have every evening. I look forward to it like my munchkins look forward to bounce houses at carnivals.
Ice cream is my wine. My cold beer. My book to snuggle up to. I take my need to unwind with a bowl of ice cream as seriously as I take clean underwear.
I never run out.
Step #1: Selection is key.
Not only do I take my stash seriously, I take ice cream preparation seriously as well.
Sprinkles (which are a must) go in the bowl 1st. This is the only surefire way to control sprinkle distribution.
I always have a minimum of two flavors in the bowl. Variety is the spice of life.
I also must scoop at least four servings, preferably more. Whoever decided a 1/2 cup of ice cream was an appropriate serving size either hates women or has never enjoyed this cold, creamy, heavenly creation. Either way I refuse to accept his (could have only been a man) definition of a serving size.
Once ice cream is scooped and extra sprinkles are in place, I always add whipped cream.
This sugar infested concoction graces my presence every evening anytime after 9:15pm. Munchkin dessert is served after dinner. Mommy dessert is served after bedtime.
I adore our time together too much to share.
Mommyhood Footnote: I offset this dessert gutbomb with cardio, running laundry up and down two flights of stairs (whoever decided basements are perfect for laundry is just as much a loser as whoever created the serving size for ice cream) and chasing munchkins. If you choose to indulge, activity is a must. Mommyhood stresses the importance of sweat.
If you can't fit cardio into your day, just bring your children to a public place such as the library.
