Occasionally I’ll bake a cake or pie but with just the two of us, this empty nest that’s sometimes fantastic and sometimes I miss Chad so much it hurts, the cakes or pies either get old before we eat them or we eat them because they’re here and then we gain weight. Don’t get me wrong . . gaining weight is not a major concern around here but letting a cake or pie go to waste is a pretty big problem!
We love ice cream though. Right now I’m so hooked on that Blue Bell Red Velvet Cake ice cream. I keep it in the freezer in my sewing room and I sneak over there, fix myself a bowl of ice cream, sit at the computer alone reading email and savoring each and every
calorie bite. Vince accuses me of hiding the ice cream from him. I am not! Every evening Vince asks me if I would like a bowl of ice cream. He’s such a sweetie. He’s going to get up from the sofa (think of all the smart remarks I could have inserted here), walk into the kitchen and fix us each of bowl of ice cream. I believe the flavor currently in the kitchen is Key Lime Pie. Each and every night I say “No, thank you!”. Do you know why I always refuse a bowl of ice cream?
Short of sitting outside alone eating bugs with my ice cream, this is what happens when we try to eat ice cream in the house. It is not worth the fight. Vince always gives Speck the last little bite. My rule is that you never ever feed a dog from the table or give him any people food and you’ll never have to deal with this. Obviously, my rules don’t apply! 🙂
