Ice cream

I rarely crave ice cream. However, tonight is the perfect summer night. It's warm, but there is almost zero humidity - which is rare for Georgia. We had a delish dinner on our tiny back patio and just hung out for a little while. And that's when I decided we must go get ice cream tonight. So here I am waiting for my stomach to empty out enough to pile some ice cream in! Mint chocolate chip? Or should I branch out? We'll see.

Anyway, we are waiting for the seller to accept our offer on a house... they counter offered on Friday and we sent it back hoping for a little more in repair money. So as soon as they send it back, we'll take it! Hopefully this week we'll be under contract for our new home!! I'll post pictures after that as to not jinx it.

I can't wait for this weekend! Obviously it's the 4th... we'
re headed down to south Georgia to see our friends Pat and Lauren (and their super cute son, Carter)! I love celebrating the 4th - homemade ice cream, bbq, hanging out with family and friends, fireworks, and of course our Independence and everyone who fights for our freedom!

Well, that Soba Noodle Salad was less than great. It really didn't have much taste which is probably why it was so low in fat and calories. Oh well. And the focaccia bread turned out pretty well considering that was the first time I've ever made bread from scratch. Hopefully I'll get better at it the more I make it.

Well, I'm rambling so I'll stop. Plus it's time for ice cream!


  1. I love your rambling, too! And that cake in your picture looks EXACTLY like the cake I made myself for my birthday. Super tasty!!!

    Did you ever try the crazy potato ice cream in Japan?
    So weird.
