Sometimes I Just Gotta Be Bad

I am the one that hollers about controlling the sweets in this house. Admittedly we don't always eat healthy, but I do try to keep our eating habits as healthy as possible. A mom's gotta do what a mom's gotta do, right? Well today I blew it. Today at the store I noticed that ice cream was on sale. As the temps are triple digits all this week, I figured why not get some ice cream. Just some. So I got tubs of French Vanilla, Butter Pecan, Strawberry, Cookies and Cream, and Rocky Road. Good thing the other flavors in this brand were all sold out . I know I did a bad thing, but I doubt the kids will think so . Do you ever do something so bad that it's so good ? By the way, I write this post as I'm sitting here eating a vanilla ice cream sandwich. Yah, I got a box of those too .

Ha Ha That is one of my favorites. it is just me and I don't eat a lot of sweets but who can pass up ice cream when it is on sale and it is super hot outside. I bet no one complained.

I "try" not eat a lot of sweets - but sometimes that darn sugar gets the best of me - it knows how to lure me in . Oh yah, it was a seriously good deal and the kids offered to help eat them .

I have made vanilla ice cream two days ago and yesterday I made a strawberry frozen yogurt and a lemon ice cream. The heat is back, a little ice cream while watching the TV after dinner is appreciated.

It's funny you say Neapolitan . . . I actually did see a tub of that - but didn't get it because I was already getting the individual flavors (well, Rocky Road was closest to chocolate). I didn't see the sandwich though, maybe they were sold out of those. Oh could eat a billion of those vanilla ice cream sandwiches! Living on a dairy farm, did you guys have a lot of ice cream?

@much2say I haven't seen a whole lot of Neapolitan ice cream sandwiches but I've eaten a few. And I do like the vanilla ice cream sandwiches as well, but given the choice I would pick the Neapolitan ice cream sandwich. We had ice cream in the summer but I can only remember making it once on the farm. Someone showed up with an ice cream maker and we made ice cream with it. We didn't own an ice cream maker. They talked about getting one but never did. It was said the electric ice cream maker didn't make as good ice cream as the hand crank one. And if you ever made ice cream with a hand crank one you would find out how hard that is.

@RichardMeister When I was a kid, I used to eat the strawberry end first - then the chocolate - and saved the vanilla for last (vanilla being my favorite). I just had a vanilla sandwich . . . I am certain I could eat a whole box in one sitting . I've never owned an electric or hand crank ice cream maker. So was the ice cream you made pretty good? We made an itty bit last summer with a couple ziploc bags, ice cream salt, cream, and vanilla (can't remember if we put sugar in it) - you just shake the bags for a long time. It turned into frozen cream, but the kids didn't think it tasted like "ice cream".

The packaging says 1.5 Quarts (1.41L). And the box of ice cream sandwiches has 6 in them. The price was so good, I seriously would have bought all the flavors, but these were all that were available.

@much2say i guess it's easy if you have a big fridge or freezer.

@hereandthere It's not the biggest, maybe average size for here. The fridge is on top and the freezer is on the bottom. Recently we had a long black out, so I sadly had to throw out all the frozen meats. That conveniently made more room for multiple tubs of ice cream .

Ice cream has high content of milk, right? Therefore, ice cream is good! (You gave me a good idea there, I need milk, but I am lazy to get it right today. I have plenty of ice cream though... )

Yes, we get a good dose of calcium from eating ice cream . You can melt the ice cream and drink it (milk shake?).

All varieties of ice cream make my mouth water,though they aren't our daily food and hardly eat them.I don't have a sweet tooth,but sometimes spoil myself eating some.

I like almost all flavors of ice cream . . . but as much as I like chocolate, I do not like chocolate ice cream. I am trying to cut out much of the sugar in our diet - so this obviously does not help. But I guess it's ok to spoil ourselves every now and then. I am satisfied with just one small scoop . . . my husband and kids can eat a big dish of it.

@changjiangzhibin89 Yes, the sweet tooth comes from my husband's side of the family. I can be a sweet tooth too, but not like them! I end up getting sick when I have too much sugar in my system. Moderation is best, but with ice cream I think one needs to be more than moderate.

Well, it's not all the time you get to each ice cream, but then you just need to learn how to moderate.
