Food Coma

So Mike and I have been on this Ben and Jerry's kick lately. The bodega we shop at has a constantly revolving supply of the stuff so we usually each get a different kind and then sample (steal) each others! I kind of have a knack for picking out the REALLY good flavors. So, the other night I was feeling the need to indulge my sweet tooth so while we were picking up stuff for dinner I stopped at the freezer to see what they had. I found a new flavor called Cinnamon Buns. I, being a lover of Cinnabuns thought it sounded interesting...Mike showed no interest in it and said he didn't want any but I grabbed it anyway and had some after dinner that night. Can I just tell you, it is AMAZING!! It is the best Ben and Jerry's I've ever had and for those of you who like Ben and Jerry's, you know that's saying a lot! It's caramel ice cream with cinnamon bun dough and caramel streusel swirls. Mike had one bite and wanted to finish the entire carton! So much for him not wanting any ;)

In addition to Ben and Jerry hanging out in my freezer, the girl scout cookies I ordered are in. It's a good thing these things only come out once a year. I have already had 3 somoas and had to hide them in a drawer to keep from consuming the entire box! Not to mention that we are having Crumbs cupcakes here at work today for someone's bday. DO you hear that? Yeah, it's me gaining 5 pounds as I write this!

Mmmmmmm..... Ben and Jerrys.... I gained 10 lbs in about two weeks during Annelie's birthday celebrations in which I baked about three batches of brownies, and two layer cakes.

It was worth it. My favorite B and J is Cherry Garcia. It just never gets old!! I can't wait to try Cinnamon Buns! Ice cream is my #1 weakness!!

If you can't enjoy a pint of ice cream every few days, what's the point?

My personal fave is Haagan daz chocolate peanut butter. I can sit and eat a whole pint if my husband isn't peering over at me ... :D
