Charity begins at home
Wednesday, August 19, 2015
We used to be a bit of an ice-cream family. The hub would have a bowl of his fave for dessert more often than not; one kid would smother the occasional brownie with her fave and the other would indulge on a hot day. Me? Well, I could stay away from it for long periods of time but once I got a taste, I'd feel compelled to have some every day until I got tired of it.
So the unopened tubs of my favorite Ben&Jerry's in the freezer, which have been sitting there for over 8 months, are like ticking time bombs. I haven't had ice-cream since last October, but those tubs are a lurking danger.
But today I solved my problem. The kid is invited for a group dinner and soccer viewing party tomorrow, and I suggested she take the two pints of ice-cream over to share for dessert. And, contrary to typical teenage girl behavior, she actually agreed! So this time tomorrow the kitchen will be a safer place....
