"I" is for ....

A to Z challenge...
ABC's of My Life~

...Ignorance


No, “I” is for Integrity

Ummm, that's not right! “I” is for Ice Cream…

Nothing more to be said…it is my love and my weakness. I could eat ice cream every day of the week for every meal.

Do you think I’m exaggerating? Nope, I’m not!

Dairy Queen is my favorite, chocolate to be certain. But I also adore their Blizzards-Banana Cream Pie is fantastic but sometimes I choose Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup with Chocolate soft serve. Yep, that’s my most desired!

Well, that’s not completely true-I find Baskin Robbins Peanut Butter and Chocolate or Pralines and Cream to be irresistible, and I’m really fond of the Butter Pecan; now that is phenomenal!

But then again, I am in reality partial to Swenson’s Peppermint Stick.

I presume you could identify me as Indecisive.

from having a scoop of ice cream

Ha! I love ice-cream too, though we don't have nearly as many gorgeous sounding flavours over here in Wales. Obviously we are a deprived country. :p

Angela Felsted said...

You are decidedly crazy about ice cream!

Talli Roland said...

Hehe! I love ice cream. It's been ages since I've had some really yummy stuff.

DoanLegacy said...

That's a very tempting indulgence! Beautiful photo.

Julie Harward said...

Ellie said...

LOL. You and Mr. G would get on well!

I love ice-cream, too, and have been working on a post for it. So far the only picture I have is my freezer full of it. I LOVE the quote!! The Swensons sounds really good! But we don't have that brand here, or maybe that is an ice-cream parlour.

Margaret (Peggy or Peg too) said...

OMG i thought I was the only one who felt this way about that creamy concoction. I so love ice cream...morning, noon and night.

I went to Ben & Jerry's (the only men I'd leave my husband for!) and it was the happiest place on earth - free ice cream - trying new flavors. Oh my it was wonderful!!

From the Kitchen said...

Me too, me too! I can eat ice cream in a blizzard (the real kind--not the Dairy Queen kind)! Is there anything better in summer than standing around the ice cream maker waiting for strawberry or peach ice cream to set up?

Now you've made me want an ice cream cone.

Best,
Bonnie

texwisgirl said...

LOL (and snorting here too!) ha ha!!!

Rita said...

Love your cute post today; I really have weakness for that frozen treat. I always have tuv in the freezer; it is comfort food. REally enjoyed that quotation and so true.
Rita

Josh Hoyt said...

Great post and very indecisive :) That's what comes from loving Ice cream. At times I just love simple vanilla. The quote is so true it is so disappointing to loose a scoop of ice cream.

Wanda's Wings said...

Oh that looks so much better than tuna and crackers. Sigh!!!

Teresa Evangeline said...

I'm so glad you chose ice cream over ignorance and integrity. That's taking the positive out front where it belongs! :) Now I want to get in my car and drive to the DQ for my fave: peanut butter cup blizzard. Mmmm.

Darn ignorant diet backed by personal integrity, i.e. sticking to it.... :)

Old Kitty said...

Good ol Vanilla ice cream for me!!! Yay for Ice Cream!!!!

Take care

Oklahoma Granny said...

All those a great choices but summer is coming and that's the time for the homemade stuff!

Nancy said...

My downfall as well, Tracy. I love ice cream. :)

LTM said...

oh, man! And I lurv me some ice cream, too. Can you believe I've developed a milk allergy in my old age? So I can't have it anymore... :o\ <3

Happy Days said...

We have a dairy Queen 1/10 of a mile from our house and it is one of our favorite places!! Esp in the summer!! All those goodies look so yummy!!...debbie

Jeanie said...

Perfect choice for the letter "I". Your descriptions of your favorites are scrumptious and the good thing about you indecisiveness is that you can't go wrong no matter what you choose.

Jules said...

LOL, I love Dairy Queen. I like those vanilla, chocolate dipped cones, just simple ice cream :) Great choice for "I" :)

Sophia said...

Oh my gosh....I love DQ, too!! :D My favourite is the brownie earthquake or French Silk Pie blizzard. Hugs

PS Dad is doing OK....best as can be. He's going through chemo and radiation right now again. =/ Thank you for asking.

You can't go wrong with Vanilla Ice Cream!! :-P

Bish Denham said...

Hmmm, hmmmmm, good!

Lin said...

I'm not big on ice cream, believe it or not. I can totally sit in the car while everyone gets some--isn't that weird???! If I do get ice cream, I like Dairy Queen too. But I just get a cone. :)

Munir said...

Oh wow, what a sweat post Mmm good - - - is absolutely right.
Tracy, you are not kidding. We are on the same wave length indeed. I was extremely busy today. I had planned out a two page post, but did not even remember half of it. There was no way I could not write on ice cream:)

Linda Reeder said...

Ice cream is also one of my weaknesses, especially anything with fudge sauce and nuts on it!
After reading this post all I can say is it's a good thing I don't have any ice cream in the house!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

We love ice cream also... Our favorites are Blue Bell brand.. George loves the Chocolate Cookie Dough, and I love the Banana Pudding ice cream. It is AWESOME.

We also like DQ Blizzards... I love the Pumpkin ones during October. I also love the Hawaiian or Tropical ones.

Hugs,
Betsy

maggie's garden said...

After I read this I rushed right off to the freezer and popped a few scoops of plain vanilla into a bowl. My favorite would be butter pecan if given a choice.
Yummy post!

Myne Whitman said...

Ice cream is one of my vices that I feel like I have to treat myself sometimes, lol.

Susan Fields said...

Cookies and Cream or Cookie Dough, please!

Sarah Mäkelä said...

Mmmm! Ice cream. I love Denali's Bear Claw and Moose Tracks. Pralines and Cream is also really good.

Penny said...

Yummy!!!!!!! Ice cream is so good any time any place.

Hugs,
Penny

Niki said...

Yum I love boysenberry.

Jennifer said...

I don't want cake for my birthday gatherings - it's make your own sundaes! I did a post on ice cream. One of my bucket list items is to try 3 new flavors - not a hardship for sure! Jennifer come visit sometime! jennsthreegraces

Ice cream is a weakness for me too. Combining the chocolate and peanut butter together gets me every time! :D
