Pregnant women crave (blogs about) ice cream

This one goes out to preggo A Fuss, who demands another blog from me. And because I need to justify buying 2 types of ice cream, I will use "blog research" as my justification.

In the photo, you will see the two types of ice cream I purchased. Along with a random porcelain flamingo. Who doesn't keep mid-century porcelain flamingos in their kitchen? And those wine bottles are future craft projects. And that kitchen timer was supposed to be cool and retro, because I don't have a timer on my stove. There's nothing cool about it not always ringing when the time is up. *&^%$$#@*!!! But I digress.....onto the research.

Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie: tasted just like that. Very chocolatey, fudgey, and the brownies were awesome! A very rich flavor, and smooth ice cream. Full bodied, if you will. It's perfect for those "give me chocolate and no one gets hurt" days. I don't remember how much it cost. Over priced, I'm assuming. Side note, Tigger goes crazy when I break it open.

Kemp's Peanut Butter Cup Brownie: Smooth flavor, not over powering. The small peanut butter cups were just the right size, and there is peanut butter swirled throughout the ice cream. YUM. The brownies seemed unnecessary. They didn't taste very good, were small pieces, and just seemed "redundant"? That word comes to mind because while I was eating it, I was watching the British show "The Office" and the first episode is about redundancies, and people possibly being fired, and it's really a good show. I love British comedies. For some reason, they seem much funnier than us. I'm sure if Tigger were in the room, he'd go crazy when I open the carton. He goes crazy when I open a wine bottle. I don't remember how much it cost, either. Probably almost as much as the smaller Ben & Jerry's.

So, there you have it. A big mess of ramblings, and now you know why this blog is titled "Randumb". "Stream of conscience thoughts by Sarah that do not connect" was too long.

That's a flamingo?! And what happened to the fortune cookie? How am I supposed to plan my day now?

It is an excellent flamingo! Exquisitely produced then lovingly bought and brought home for proud display by some lady decades ago! She then died and her children attempted to rid the old family home of all the crap by having an auction...where I bought stuff...and passed the treasures on to them who deserve them! - Sarah D (would have left name in normal spot, but the computer decided to argue with me)

yes, sarah d passed on the treasured flamingo to me. and now it sits in my kitchen. because that's where i keep the flamingo dish towel and salt and pepper shakers, and xmas ornament, and they all coordinate. cuz that's how i roll.

It really disturbs me that you have a friend called Sarah D because it reminds me of the other Sara D. Thank you for honoring me with this blog! I would like to put in my two cents that Perry's Peanut Butter Cup ice cream is the best. And then you put that on top of a brownie. See how that works? I like No Pudge Brownies which are fat free. And then I put a layer of Peanut Butter on top of it. And then the ice cream.
