Because sometimes you have to not only embrace but be the cliché.
Posted in Musings
Perfect weather for being this particular cliché 🙂
And horrible weather for anything else! Thank heavens it’s sunnier today 🙂
Yep! That’s about what today is all about.
Sometimes a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do 😉
Is this an Auf Wiedersehen situation?
I admire anyone you has self-restraint with a carton of ice cream. I regularly consume cartons containing 4 servings in one sitting. (Fortunately, I tend to eat naturally lower calorie ice cream, so the total is about 700 calories. But I have had my share of embarrassing moments with Ben & Jerry’s…)
And I could so go for some ice cream right now. Goat’s milk ice cream… with balsamic and strawberries… mmm.
Just wanted to be clear — I am assuming here that you ate it all. 😉
Yep – seems like you’re the only one who got that part of it.
To be honest, I didn’t eat that carton in one sitting… it’s a 2 litre carton (that’s over 4 pints). Though I have very, very fond memories of eating entire pints of ice cream (and not always that namby pamby low cal stuff either 😉 ) when I was travelling and had no access to a freezer. Now, please stop taunting me with tales of that Laloo ice cream!
It’entirely possible that seeing Sabrina solidified my desire to go to culinary school.
I can’t think of a better reason to go to culinary school. I mean, it’s Bogart! BOGART.
ha, looks like the perfect combo for a great night in!
Oh and we haven’t been able to afford a ktichen aid either- then we got money for our anniversary and I’m telling you, you have to check out their online outlet store! I don’t know where they ship to but I was happily surprised at the discounts!
It was more of an afternoon-and-night in, but that just makes it better, right? 😀 Somehow I doubt that outlet store would ship overseas… postage costs would kill any savings that were made, I bet!
That is my idea of heaven, altough I would replace Breakfast at Tiffany’s with Modern Family!
Modern Family is brilliant, but it doesn’t have lovely old-school romance or a beautiful rendition of Moon River at the end 🙂
YUM! Looks like a great evening.
It was at that 🙂
Would you believe I’ve never seen B@T’s! ::hangs head in shame:: But that ice cream looks gooood…
The myriad little crunchy toffee balls are what make it, though in all honesty I’m not much of an ice cream person, so events like this are few and far between!
And when you come visit me, we’ll simply have to bunker down and watch all my Audrey and Marilyn Monroe DVDs 🙂
Aw. I know I could polish off ALL that ice cream in one sitting. I like Audrey Hepburn but if we swapped it for a Marilyn Monroe DVD collection (or Sondheim even!) I’d be happier still!
My problem is I get tremendously bored with ice cream, which puts a dampener on eating 2L in one sitting 😉
I promise that if (nay, WHEN) you come to Australia and visit, I’ll put the Audrey away and we can watch my Sondheim boxset all the way through, then my DVDs of Bus Stop, Some Like it Hot, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, and How To Marry A Millionaire. Deal?
I could not agree more 😉
🙂 Seems like most of us understand the simple pleasure of such an afternoon!
So THAT’s what you were doing?!
And I think you know why this was necessary, too! (P.S. You say that like I was doing something naughty!)
Haha this is perfect for the Wordless Wednesday posts that I’ve seen around the interwebs. No words needed! 😛
Yep, pretty self-explanatory, even without my caption 😉
Nothing wrong with that… NOTHING!
Amen, sister! 😀
[…] The recipe below is for my cut-down-by-a-third-and-adapted version of the original, which purported to make 45 cookies. Whilst I know I could very easily eat 45 cookies over the course of a few days, I also know I’d get horrifically bored by the sameness of them all if I did. Ergo you should be able to double or triple this recipe easily, if you want more cookies in your life. Or if you want to share with other people, instead of sitting by yourself with cookies and ice cream watching old-school romantic movies all afternoon. […]
