Dear Ice Cream,
I have loved you all my life.
Even when Mom got the same damn flavor from the commissary for months on end..( Chocolate with Marshmallow swirl in it) ..I still loved you because I knew if we bitched that Mom would reply and rightly so.." Fine...I won't buy any then ."
We weren't completely stupid you see.
Dairy Queen soft serve with the chocolate dip , Creamsickles, Fudgesickles...you name it, I loved it.
I will forever associate Butter Brickle and Hershey's syrup with Minnesota circa 1968 and my grandparents. I think this is the only kind Grandma bought while we lived at the Parsonage with them...can't find it here, and sorry , Butter Pecan is not the same.
Dryers, Ben and Jerry's, BlueBell..you name it , I've tried them.
One if the sites I follow is www.laurenslatest.com
And she is having a contest that I have entered..yup ..for that beauty you see above.
Check her website out , you know your Aunty Pol won't steer you wrong.
AND....if you believe in irony as I do or am a dyed in the wool cynic at times as I am...
Yes..the woman with lactose tolerance issues is entering a contest for an ice cream maker...LMAO !
I'm doing it for SU you see ( wink wink) because that man loves him some Blue Bell.
Aren't I the best wifey ?
Have a great week !
