Ice Cream Let Down

This is my favorite thing to get at Coldstone so you can imagine my excitement when I was driving home Saturday night and Chris requested a "treat". I anxiously place our order and race home to devour my devilishly fantastic ice cream. You can only imagine my disappointment as I bound through our bedroom door to find Chris asleep. My shoulders slump as I ruffle the brown bag to wake is sorry behind up. "Oh, we can still eat it if you want," he says. Heck no! Then I look like that fat one and we can't have that! It's okay I tell myself because there's always tomorrow, we'll put the kids to bed and I'll curl up in a warm blanket to finally eat my treat. So Sunday evening arrives, the kids are in bed, our bedroom window is open so our room is extra chilly, I'm in my comfy clothes under the covers as I begin to demolish my heavenly goody. The first bite was good, not great so I kept eating expecting to die and go to heaven any second. I keep eating and get oh so disappointed with every bite. The ice cream girl decided to add 10lbs. of almonds and that is all I can taste! Gross! I like almonds in the proper amounts but a whole mouth full, bite after bite is too much! This mouth-watering combo is ruined! Too many stinken almonds!! I've wasted all those calories!! AHHHH! I hate being disappointed in my food!

Hmmm... Maybe you misunderstood when Chris said he wanted a "treat." Kidding. Sorry about your let-down. I look forward to those moments when I can eat a treat without dishing out half of it to the kids that swarm around me when I have something yummy.

Morris mama...you are funny! When you get old like this mama...you can have goodies all the time...the sugar kind...but then you look like you do too! Bummer! Seems I find myself wanting to eat the goodies just cause I'm home alone and who will know...except my jeans the next day!

Janalyn said...

Totally agree, ya gotta have the almonds sparingly!

I am obsessed with their banana ice cream with brownies mixed in. That is where you will take one bite & die & go to heaven. I PROMISE. I agree with Vonda, no more talk of calorie watching :)

MY best friend and neighbor, her parents founded COLdstone...I'll be sure to pass along the complaint. I'm sure they'll comply! THey actually just went to be on Oprah this week, so watch and see if they make Your favorite for Oprah and if they use TOO many nutS!

So sad! Especially when you are indulging, but honestly Heidi, maybe you should indulge more often!
