I don’t know if I can go back to normal ice cream after this.

Because this ice cream, it’s VEGAN.

I know, I’m turning into a total hipster. I think I probably already fall into that category of people though. Oops.

Let’s talk about this ice cream though.

I’m eating it right now. And basically every day since I made it.

I have been slaving over pretzel buns since OCTOBER.

And I can finally say: nailed it.

Also this weekend I went to a boxing class and every. single. muscle. is sore. That was on Saturday.. and I’m still complaining about muscle soreness. And today.. it’s leg day. It’s embarrassing.

I don’t really have a follow up. Is that bad?

I ran out of these cookies over a week ago. And now I’m over halfway through the week and I really feel like I need a cookie. I have like a million things to do. I went out of town this past weekend and um, all that stuff is still just in my floor. I’ve been re-watching episodes of Grey’s and Labyrinth. So like, David Bowie is more important than unpacking. Fact.

Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins - Mrs. Penguin

That kind of creeped up on me. I really should’ve planned better. Even though I totally have this prejudice against mint flavored things on St Patricks Day, even though I definitely had a shamrock shake a couple weeks ago. I don’t know, I get that it’s green, but… I feel like there are 100 other things that are St Patricks Day themed. Like anything with booze in it. Irish coffee? Yes. Guinness? Yes. Mint? No…
