What's Your Favorite Flavor?

As I learn to get better and better at savoring the summer, 
today I'm excited about ... ice cream!
Baskin Robbins Baseball Nut in particular.
Vanilla ice cream, ribbons of raspberry, cashew chunks.

We went to a minor league baseball game to watch the Sugarland Skeeters the other night because John's UT alumni band was invited to play there. We had a great time, but truthfully, the last thing I wanted to do after the game (at 10:15 at night) with an hour's drive ahead of us was stop for ice cream. 
I was in a hurry to get home!

But hurrying is the opposite of savoring. 
I'm pretty sure you can't savor when you're in a hurry.

And when the boys saw that the light in the BR was still on, John made a U-turn so fast. I was tempted by the Turtle flavor and I tried the Peach, but that's before I saw Baseball Nut ... 
one little taste and it really hit a home run.
I savored every bite.

Then yesterday I saw this news clip of my sweet niece
pitching National Ice Cream Month 
on television and I knew I just had to share.
We are so proud of her!



What's your favorite flavor to savor?

  4. Hey! Yay for Kristen! She did a fine job! I don't get to eat much ice cream. Occasionally some vanilla. But it sure makes me drool!

    1. Isn't she adorable? She had a dog, just like you, Rhythm, when she was growing up. I'm pretty sure her name was Molly. She was just like a sibling to her and her brother.

      I have to be careful not to enjoy too much ice cream, too. Oh, and it makes also makes me drool. Our list keeps getting longer and longer!
