Peanut-Butter Ice Cream

You buy it. Stick it in the fridge...two days later you can see the white carton poking out from beneath the brown goodness. THIEVES!

Three dollars. Not much to the wealthy, or even semi-wealthy, but that is at least 20 miles on my car. I set that money aside for ice cream and it is disappearing.

I love my folks, but really. I wish I could work up the gumption to put a big extra-sticky Post-It on it declaring: THIS IS AMANDA's ONE TREAT. Please do not put your pilfering fingers on it.

Milton and his Swingline. I swear.

Well, I guess I can't complain totally. My dad handed me a dollar when he came into the living room with a bowlfull last night. I wish I could go grocery shopping. I would get things people would eat.

My mother usually buys oatmeal, cottage cheese, and some kind of beastly yogurt--and let's not forget--the intricate confections that take three hours to bake, broil, or otherwise--tame.

I am not a cook. I burn everything. I have even burnt ramen! I have mastered canned raviolis, lemonade, soup, and macaroni & cheese but the oven and the range still look like a gaping monster, lying in wait for a chance to pulverize my dinner, and my attempts to be a semi-functional human, not to mention domicile girl HAHA!

The kitchen has never been my domain. But when it comes to frozen ready-to-eat wonderful things like ice cream, I am very, very protective. When I look in the cubboards I skim over the things that take more than five minutes to prepare. I have better things to do. So don't touch my ready-to-eat items, especially the sweet ones.

agrandchild after my own heart. But I would have to have two white cartons in the ref. YOU KNOW THE GREEN STUFF WITH THE BROWN SPECKS. Stay out of both cartons.

Yeah. Mint-chocolate chip is my second favorite.

I love mint chocolate chip--how can you say that's your second favorite?! Insane child...

Know what? I'm guilty as charged on the "it takes more than five minutes to prepare it" count. Living in a dorm, I don't have to make much more than microwaveable popcorn, and other terribly salty items (mini-bowls of Dinty Moore beef stew included).

I've burnt tomato soup, if it's any consolation, (And the same day I caught a bag of popcorn on fire when I was babysitting...)

Peanut Butter Ice Cream is amazing, i love peanut butter, RAR to those who stole your one sweet treat Amanda, some day, you and I will go get ice cream somewhere and then eat it before you go home so everyone there will smell it on your breath and find the Dairy Queen napkins in your car, that will show them. HA! :)

Have you seen the funny commercial for the new Dairy Queen oreo sundae??? MAN DOES THAT LOOK GOOD TO EAT! Peanut Butter ice-cream is one of my favorites of the bunch, plus cookie dough. Cooking is one of my hobbies that I am best at.
