Mom went grocery shopping and look what she came home with!She said that she had no intention of buying any and she actually wasn't even looking in the ice creams' direction while she was wheeling down that aisle. But then she told us that something was calling to her and she just had to turn her head and look!
And when she did, a smile broke out on her face because GingerSnap ice cream reminded her of the fun we all had on Nantucket on our summer vacation and there was no way she was leaving the store without it!
Isn't our mom just the smartest?!

Check out the mini-gingersnap cookies in there!Yes, I know I'm not supposed to have ice cream with compromised kidneys but I won't eat the ice cream part - I'll eat the cookie part!Thanks, mom! Yup, we're remembering the fun times we had on Nantucket! This was a great idea you had!

So until next time................

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

The ice cream returns!! You must really be addicted to be able to eat that frozen stuff when it's so cold out!!! Think I'll opt for a nice warm bowl of cinnamon oatmeat instead!! Glad you enjoyed it (and tell you mom she's an enabler BOL!!)

Hi Maggie and Mitch!
That look delicious!!


Fenway said...

I'm glad your mom brought the Ginger Snap flavor home to you. It matches your coats and I think it will only serve to enhance your coloring.

We love Turkey Hill, too. Mom selflessly gives up buying the Moose Tracks so I can share dessert.

Oh, and it's so good to remember the good times last summer on Nantucket. But don't eat too much ice cream or you won't fit into your bathing suits!

Your pal,

Twinkietinydog said...

Enough trash by me, for a moment. Aren't our humans the best? I mean, come on, they even separate the gingersnap cookies from the ice cream for us! We're so lucky. (now delete this before my mom sees it)

Ina in Alaska said...

Martha and Bailey said...

We tried ice cream and found it to be cold. We did not like it.
Whenever we visit your blog you inspire us to try new things - your ice cream looked lovely.
Happy memories too.

I'm glad you got a wee bite of the dessert, Maggie. It's tough being on a diet.

Joe Stains said...

Ice cream does not agree with Mom's tummy either, but she still eats it sometimes. She has never seen that brand before around here, but she hopes to find it. SHe loves ginger snaps.
