We All Scream for Ice Cream

Did I mention that I love ice cream? Well, I do. Love it lots. Ice cream and me go way back. I have always loved ice cream. Me and hubby have been going to Bruster's lately (about once a week) & getting waffle cones & boy is it yummy! Of course, it helps that this is in place of dinner some Sunday nights. They keep sending out these, buy one, get one coupons...how can we resist? We can't! Is there anything better than that creamy, delectible, wondrous stuff called ice cream in the summer? I don't think so. No way. No how.


My particular favorite from Bruster's is White Turtle. This is considered a single scoop...aren't they generous? It's a creamy vanilla wonder with swirls of caramel & pecans & is just about the most scrumptious thing you could ever put in your mouth. Ice cream is my downfall. I could eat lots & lots of it. But, I don't. I'd have to work out a whole lot more than I do to keep this off my hips if I ate as much as I wanted. It sure is a treat though. Especially with the heat the way it is this week, 100+! Yikes!


Do you love ice cream too? Tell me you do...what's your favorite flavor? I bet we have some more this weekend! Gotta eat it fast in this heat.

P.S. Work is really going good. I'm continuing to enjoy the job, the people & what I'm doing. Nice to feel productive again!

I love ice cream too! When I saw your post, it reminded me of the ice creams we get at Cold Stone Creamery. Yum, we haven't been out for ice cream in a while, and I may try Bruster's.

Glad to here that your new job is going well. It's so great to enjoy what you do. Have a great weekend!

Goodness! That's a large single scoop - I'd have to ask for a child's cone or something! I'm a Haagen-daz girl, but I'm not crazy about ice cream. I have it a couple of times a year. Now, pies & cakes I could eat everyday!

I guess I'm pretty boring as far as ice cream goes. I like vanilla. Any brand. I'm a vanilla kind of girl, I guess.

Brenda said...

Early Friday morning here with a cup of Java... but the picture makes me wanna run get icecream. I love it! Never heard of Bruster's, but it looks great. I love to make homade,but working it is easier to run down town. I guess my fav. is Butterpecan. But we have a place here called "lions choice" where you can go get the old fashion dipped cone.The small is 25 cents...yep you heard me right.Great deal and all you need at one time so rich.Have a great weekend,Brenda

Lana said...

Oh my ~ that looks delicious! I love lots of flavors, but plain old strawberry is my all time favorite.

Thanks for the brass to bronze how-to. I have lots of brass fixtures that I'd love to change to a bronze finish.

Have a lovely weekend!

That looks VERY yummy. But I would rather eat that cone than the ice cream in it! heheeheh

Tina Leigh said...

It's not my fault that there is SLOBBER all over this post! We bought a White Mountain Ice Cream maker this summer....it makes the CREAM-EE-IST ice cream! I'm not much on vanilla but he made a really good recipe the other day.....we ended up making another batch & we doubled the amount!

sheila said...

well, thank you very much, Missy :)

now I want a big ol 'thing of ice cream...in a waffle cone :)

Adriann said...

That's one huge scoop of icecream! It looks delicious. Glad to here work is going well.

I think I'll take William out for some icecream to celebrate his first week of school.

Enjoy your weekend!

Deb said...

Love ice cream! One of our favourites is Ben & Jerry's Chunky Monkey! Delicious.

Kathleen Grace said...

I love any flavor as long as it has chocolate of some kind in it. Of course I love cherry and mint and vanilla too. Ok, maybe I like any flavor LOL! But my favorite is vanilla with peanut butter stirred in. My grandma always had it that way when I was little and we had a bowl each night, so it always reminds me of her.:>)

oh I absolutely LOVE ice cream...I could too just live on it alone. it's my downfall. I could live without candy, pies or cakes...but never ice cream. My favorite flavor is Dulce de Leche...or i also love Coffee. When I was in high school I could eat a whole half gallon....really. How sad am I. Glad your job is going well.....love your style of house and if I ever go to visit my inlaws in Alabama, (Foley) you'll have to come down to the coast to visit me...OK? And IF we ever move to AL I would hope we would become good friends.

Oh yeah! Bruster's and I are like BFFs. I go for the regular Turtle. The caramel, the chocolate, the nuts...yum!

Now, I wish they'd send me some coupons.

Ruth Welter said...

Rhoda, you are making me very hungry for something sweet. : ) Yes, I do love ice cream as well. My personal favorite is chocolate chip mint. No matter how many flavors are available, if there is chocolate chip mint, that is the one I'll pick.

DebraK from ~the Bunnies Bungalow~ said...

Ice cream is a big reason I need to lose 20lbs! I love it!!!! My fav is black raspberry.

We have Bruster's here, but never got any coupons. :(

Fran said...

Oh my gosh! My favorite flavor there is White Turtle also! I always want to try something new but just can't!

My friend I usually go with loves their key lime.....maybe one day I will try that.....but probably not!

Hi Rhoda...One of our favorite ice cream places is Central Dairy in Jefferson City MO. We make the stop coming from the lake on Sunday afternoons. Central is a very popular place anytime of year, but especially in summer. Their single dip looks like the one in your photo. Moose Tracks is a favorite of mine. Rich vanilla ice cream, chunks of chocolate and chocolate coated peanut butter. J's is butter pecan. Central makes their own ice cream. I love their chocolate milk..so good. But can't have it or the ice cream too often!!

Good to hear the job is going well!

Hi Rhoda,
Oh how I love ice cream. My all time favorite is mint chocolate chip. When we lived in Nebraska though there was a Culvers and they had the best vanilla custard with cashews and warm caramel sauce. OMgoodness. SO good. We've often replicated the recipe and have it home but I don't keep caramel in the house any more because we were making it too much!

Glad that all is going great still at your new job!

Have a great weekend.
Sandy

Rhoda,
My favorite ice cream is from Cold Stones. Its called Founders Favorite. It is vanilla ice cream with brownie and caramel & pecans swirled in it. So YUMMY!!! Great to hear you love your job!

P.S I took my blog down...had to! Hubby didn't think it was a good idea because he is a Police Officer. :( But I will be reading your blog that's for sure! Hugs, Nicole

OldBagNewTricks said...

Actually I am NOT an ice cream girl... but we have Graeter's... which transcends ice cream. And their choclate chip, my favorite, has dark bittersweet chocolate chips the size of golf balls. This isn't a treat -- it's a religious experience.

Mmmmm,
Jenny

Hi Rhoda..........Yes, I love ice cream too! I use to go thru TCBY Yogurt all the time & get the sugarless fatfree kind but then got hooked on the Sonic when we lived at our other location. I love Sonic Oreo Blast. I don't get them very much living out here 30 minutes from town. Could be a good thing! LOL!
Enjoy your ice cream......hey it is hot in MS too! Bonnie

Suzanne said...

Yummmm, that looks really good! Strawberry is one of my favorites and so is Coffee icecream, actually, that sounds good right now! :)
Glad your job is going well!

Catherine said...

Susie Q said...

What a wonderfully big cone! And you had a coupon too! Now that IS a treat! I love Moose Tracks...Mint Chocolate Chip...Chocolate Chunk Chip...ooh. Ben and Jerry's Phish Food. It is delicious!

Okay now...Grace is the ice cream maven in this family. The kid would eat it every day, 3 times a day!

Have a sweet weekend...with a cherry on top!

Hugs,
Sue

melissa @ the inspired room said...

Finally got around to seeing your blog, I hear about it everywhere! VERY FUN STUFF! I can't wait to look around some more!

Haagan Daz Coffee Chip.

THE BEST!

Thanks for sharing and I am so glad I finally stopped in for a visit!

Nadine said...

I love ice cream and I can't believe that's a single scoop. They should go around to all the ice cream stores in the country and teach them to give scoops like that. My favorite is mint chocolate chip or anything with chocolate or carmel.

Have a great weekend.

Happy Homemaker said...

My favorite flavors would have to be Vanilla / Chocolate Better Batter (tastes JUST like cake batter) or Coffee flavor ice cream.

JANET said...

Well, there aren't any ice cream places around here, so what we eat we buy at the grocery store, but I am partial to Breyers All-Natural Rocky Road. We buy our own cones and scoop up the ice cream.

Terri and Bob said...

Yep, ice cream is its own food group for me. We are in love with cake batter ice cream from Cold Stone. I add in white chocolate chips and pecans. What a treat!

Jen @ The Cottage Nest said...

I am totally addicted to ice cream too and we have a wonderful little place very close by that serves homemade ice cream. My favorite flavor to get there is graham central station with graham cracker crumbs and chocolate chips. My favorite all time flavor is chocolate peanut butter!

Steph said...

Oh my gosh! I love White Turtle from Brusters also! The first time I got it and asked for it in a waffle cone I just about died, I couldn't believe how much ice cream they gave me! I kept laughing and as people looked at me like "what a pig!", I kept feeling a need to explain that I didn't know it was going to be that much! I could have had a party for small children with all that ice cream!

Gina said...

Uh oh, now I've got a craving! I really like waffle cones : )

Niesz Vintage Home said...

Wow! That is one heck of a single scoop!

I LOOOOVVVVEEEE ice cream. Make mine Black Raspberry Chip or Mocha Chip (from Greaters), please. :)

Simply Me Art said...

Looks Delicious... I am a Chocolate chip or anything Caramel...Glad you are enjoying your job. Jamie

Betty said...

Rhoda,

That cone looks yummy......I'm a Butter-Pecan girl....or anything with nuts, oh yeah, chocolate almond in a waffle cone....

So glad work is going great.....Betty

Christy said...

I like ice cream but I wouldn't say it's my fav dessert of all time. Although my all-time fav flavor is 1) dacquari ice from Baskin Robins and 2) Coconut ice cream from Marble Slab with mini chocolate chips. Unfortunatley, all the Marble Slabs closed around here.

Lallee said...

Ice cream is the best in the summer. I love Baskin and Robbins Mint Chip. At the store I've been buying one that has dark cherries and chocolate chunks that I love.

Glad to see you posting and to hear the job is going well!

Seeker said...

Whoa! How did you manage that big boy AND the camera?

Mmmmm...I think I'm off to peek in my freezer!
