At CSN Stores you can get pretty much anything, from a coffee table to a laptop bag. I’ve seen their products popping up all over the blogosphere, and I suppose it’s because they have the things health bloggers want: cookware, bakeware, and…oh yes…ice cream makers.
Fact: the heat in Houston makes me want to eat frozen yogurt every single night for dinner.
Not after dinner.
Last night I was seriously so worn out from the heat and all I wanted was yogurt or ice cream. I was also too worn out from the heat to drive to get any, so I made another brie and apple pizza for dinner…and it was completely unsatisfying. After I ate it, I was just sad that I hadn’t gotten something cold…but I was still too sad/lazy/hot/over it to drive and get it. I wanted to work out, I wanted to write, I wanted to do something…but all I could do was crave a sweet treat and feel sorry for myself.
Then I remembered the ice cream sandwiches I made on Labor Day. And then I remembered they were at Eric’s. I texted him, “I’m booty calling you for an ice cream sandwich.”
And he rejected my offer!
Luckily, I remembered that frozen bananas can be turned into soft serve, and oh, that saved the day. I topped it with chocolate chips and some macadamia nut butter, and it melted almost immediately, but it was OK with me.
I’m not kidding…my whole mood changed and I finally felt more upbeat, relaxed, and productive. Thank goodness I remembered that…I was clearly getting desperate.
I’ve put off getting an ice cream maker for the longest time because I didn’t think I’d use it enough. After all, summer is only a few months long. Who eats fro yo in December? Yes, I’d love to be able to make the basil ice cream I’ve been fantasizing about for months, but I’d probably do it once and then it would be snowing again, right?
But after last night, I realized, um I don’t have seasons anymore, and I can and shall happily eat (healthily topped) fro yo for dinner every night, year round! And I need an ice cream maker if I’m going to avoid going broke and/or gaining five pounds from the tempting toppings at Swirll (where they are soon going to know my name).
Keeping in line with being awesome in all aspects, or perhaps just in an effort to keep me from going over budget and over my RDA of calories, CSN is going to hook me up with something to review. I’m hoping it’s an ice cream maker; honestly, at this point in my life and this close to the equator, what on earth would I do with a roasting pan?
