My two new favorite things

I don't know why, I suppose it has something to do with the changing temperatures, but I've been all about food lately. I'm so not kidding. And last night I had a dream that I gained a lot of weight and my face was round. I kid you not that I woke up with a racing heart. It made me think about not eating the foods I'm about to tell you about...but, of course, it's me and that didn't last long!

First of all, I've had a bread machine for years and haven't used it. It's just sat there rather helpless for the longest wishing for something delicious smelling to bake. Well, a couple of weeks ago I decided to give it another whirl. Oh, did I forget to mention why it hadn't been used in forever? I'm trying to forget it...the weirdest looking bread you ever saw. Who knows what I did wrong, but it was definitely not edible.

So anyway, last week I tried once again to make just a regular old bread of white. Holy cow was that thing delicious. And we blew threw it in like a day and a half. So, naturally, I had to make another one. And another, and another, and another. Yep, it's been going on for 2 weeks now and I see no end in sight. As a matter of fact, my house will soon again be filled with the delicious smell of fresh baked bread in another hour now. YUMMO!!

The other thing I simply must tell you about, makes me look like this...

And what can it be?

Yes, pumpkin flavored ice cream. I have been looking for it for weeks and finally found it at my friendly neighborhood Marsh. I had been told Kroger had, but that was a lie from the pit. My mouth is watering thinking of it now. It's like pumpkin pie, ice cream...yes, creamy form!! Holy cow this stuff is good. The price tag is a lot more than I wanted to pay...I think like $6...but I will only buy it once and oh my gosh, am I happy that I did. Now my hips on the other hand, may feel a little different!

That is my fav ice cream ever! However, I have been avoiding milk because it seems to upset Kate's tummy...so I had to let Mike finish the whole container I'd bought just days before we started the milk thing. I did, however, get ONE bowl...and boy was it delish. We love the slow-churned variety...extra creamy!

Howdy! I am heading this afternoon with one of my daughters after school to get soft serve pumpkin. We have had a huge craving all week. I may get crazy and add some toppings like candied walnuts! It is the little things that make life "sweet"! Have a great weekend!
