How a Friday Night Should Be

Sitting at work today, at 3pm, I decided I was going to have a lazy night. I don’t care if its a Friday, I’m staying in. Seeing as I work Weds-Sunday, Today is more like my mid-week anyhow. Fast forward to 10pm: the “Aaah!!! Real Monsters” I was just watching has seeminly disappeared off Netflix. I needed a pick-me-up.

A few days ago Shawn and I had a joint birthday party (ours are only 6 days apart! Happy Birthday to us!) at the bar we both work at. On top of some delicious treats I made (and totally forgot to take pictures of. D’oh!) a bar regular made his incredible carrot cake as a truly wonderful gift. There were some leftovers in the fridge, and a slice was calling my name.

For Shawn’s birthday I got him an ice cream maker for his KitchenAid stand mixer. The other night was our first attempt at making ice cream. We went for simple vanilla; dipping our toes into the water instead of jumping into the keep end (don’t worry…cannonballs, belly flops and jackhammers are soon to come in the form of Garlic, Chocolate Cherry, and Alcoholic Apple Cider Ice Creams). It turned out pretty darn good. Especially for a first try. Once again, there were some leftovers in the fridge and a scoop was calling my name.

Leftover carrot cake+ homemade vanilla ice cream= heck yeah!
