Rainbow sherbet and chocolate chip cookie dough

Vanilla, chocolate, or something else entirely?

Not once in my 22 years of living have I ever chosen vanilla or chocolate unless those were the only choices and even then I always went for the swirl (is it because I wanted the best of both worlds or because I am one of the most indecisive people ever? I had no idea)

I remember being about 10 or 11 and going to get ice cream with my dad. I was completely stuck between rainbow sherbet and chocolate chip cookie dough. My dad knew me well enough to know I had some sort of dilemma that I was not voicing. He must have seen me going back and forth looking at my two choices when he spoke up and said that we could a double scoop. I was so happy but then realized that my two choices were still quite different from one another and I worried that i wouldn’t like them both together. So I asked him which he thought was better rainbow or chocolate chip. He replied by telling me to get both because if i liked both of them why not have the two together. So I did. And I loved it. Ever since then it has been my favorite. One scoop of rainbow sherbet and one of chocolate chip cookie dough.

It has been 9 years today since my dad passed away and I miss him so much and it still hurts (i have just gotten better at hiding it) This prompt was perfect it let me share a happy memory that I had with him. For the first time today I smiled. I think i’m gonna try harder to do these daily prompts.

Well good day bloggers.

Oops!!!

So I know already have messed up when it comes to blogging every day this year but it’s been a hectic passed couple of days.

My grandmother fell on Christmas eve and had an appointment two days ago where they decided she needed a cast for leg so my mom and I have partnered up in cleaning, cooking, and taking care of her. So my mom helps me out tons but that’s when she isn’t at a meeting, helping the fellow addict, or somewhere else trying to surround herself with positive people and energy.

 

Plus the kids (my bro and sis) went back to school this week so it has been extra hard getting them up in the morning and doing homework in the evening.

During this time I have also decided to go on a “diet” (ugh I truly hate that word but what else do you call eating healthier and working out in the hopes of losing weight) oh well. So far it has been going great.. Yesterday I made this delicious chicken crusted parmesan that I cut up  into strips and then put on a salad with a basic olive oil and vinegar dressing it was so good.. and then tonight while I made this chicken from last night for everyone else I had a plain white chicken breast with just some lemon juice and Mrs. Dash to season it cut up with cheese tortellini (YUMMY) and for a side we all had mashed cauliflower and for someone that has always had a hard time eating veggies it was pretty good. Anyways enough of what I’ve been eating.. I’m hoping now that everything is calming down and I’ve worked out a schedule that I’ll be able to blog at least once a day.

Well wish me luck fellow bloggers. Hey if any of you have food/snack ideas that you think I should try let me know. 😀
