It Was Wrong, But Felt So Right


sorry-smallI have to make a public apology to The Husband. I’m sorry, but I finished the ice cream last night. It was the Pralines & Cream from Grand Ole Creamery that I know you like. When I took it out of the freezer, I only meant to take a bite but it tasted so good, I couldn’t stop. Okay, I’m not being honest. When I took it out of the freezer, my sole purpose was to finish it. Kind of like when I steal the Reese’s Peanut Butter eggs out of your Easter basket every year… but I couldn’t help myself, it was so good. Next to their Black Hills Gold, the Pralines & Cream is my favorite. It felt like destiny when The Mom-In-Law brought it, I could hardly contain myself. All week I’ve eaten the sorbet, trying to pretend like I didn’t want the thick and creamy vanilla with pralines and caramel swirled throughout, but who was I kidding? Certainly not myself. And when I opened the freezer tonight, the container was sitting right there. Staring at me. I had to do it. Just like I have to eat all of the holiday edition Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups that find their way into our house. Something compels me and I can’t be held accountable for my own actions.

So, I am sorry. To make it up to you, I thought I’d try the new recipe I found for Frozen Pumpkin Mousse Pie this weekend. …let’s just forget for the moment that I can’t be held accountable for my actions where pumpkin is concerned either.
