As promised, after finishing the Southern Lemon Pie ice cream (which was good to the last little bit of shortbread crust!), I got this enticing flavor that I'd been eyeing. Now I was wary because I'm a bit of an ice cream snob. I don't usually like some of the cheaper ice creams because they pump too much air into the ice cream and I find them too "mushy". I like nice dense, solid ice cream, so I was prepared to be a bit disappointed. However I was pleasantly surprised! It's not as dense as Ben & Jerry's (have you ever had the Chubby Hubby flavor? So. good.), but it wasn't bad. There was also a LOT of blueberry flavor swirl - a lot. They also didn't cheap out on the blueberries - there was a fairly good amount of actual blueberries mixed in. It is quite yummy and it has a really nice bold blueberry flavor. The only thing that I wasn't sure about is the fact that the blueberries in it are frozen. I mean, a duh, of course they're frozen. But because they are frozen they taste kinda like little soft ice balls and not really like blueberries. I don't see any way to fix that though. But, overall I was pleasantly surprised and if you like blueberries, you'll like this for sure. I think it would also go good with sugar cookies for some reason. Or Lorna Doones. Hmm.
I don't have another ice cream lined up to try, if anyone has a favorite flavor to share, I'm open to trying any ice cream.
Oh my goodness, finished the painting today. It was such a pain in the neck and I had to use at times a broom handle with different painting implements either screwed on the end, or taped on with packing tape, while standing on a ladder, to reach the walls on top of the cabinets. (I spent half my time wiping paint off the cabinets, the ceiling and the floor as I awkwardly banged the stupid broom handle with a painting implement on the end all over the place.) I also totally didn't realize I was going to have to move the refrigerator. But I did, and I even cleaned the floor behind the fridge which I consider an act of bravery (pats self on back).
Guess what I get to do tomorrow?? Mow the lawn! Hey, at least I get to be outside and breathe in gasoline fumes instead of paint fumes, that's a welcome change.
It's ok, I actually don't mind mowing the lawn too much. The hardest part is getting the push mower started. I'll explain that process tomorrow, this post is long enough. The end.
