I have a confession to make. A dirty little secret. I am addicted to eating some form of creamy frozen delight after my kiddos are in bed. Every. Single. Night.
This is my only me time and I so look forward to it. After a hard days work it is truly the best way to unwind. This all started when my oldest was about one years old. Usually after 8:30 p.m. It’s a very tranquil time because the house is quiet except for the TV and I get to actually enjoy some type of food with no interruptions. Ah, its magical. Some people like a nice glass of wine. Others may prefer popcorn. Not me. It must always, always be some form of ice cream in a big ol’ bowl. Tonight the victim was Gelato. Häagen-Dazs Sea Salt Caramel to be precise. Can you believe such a small container yields 240 calories?! Ouch. But, it’s so heavenly. Who cares? Of course I had to mix it with some frozen yogurt because it simply wasn’t enough. And, this frozen yogurt I’m talking about is the best store-bought yogurt I have found to date — Kemp’s Caramel Chocolate Brownie. It’s my go-to weekly.
Now, I must admit this is the only time I don’t care about just how many calories I may consume in one sitting. I mean after all, I barely get time to eat during the day and when I do — I usually have a baby on my hip or I am listening to my threenager complain about eating whatever is in front of her.
I heart you Gelato. You made my day. May we have many more.
