Free Ice Cream

After spending about three hours studying at Starbucks this afternoon, I finally made my way home. Right before I left, I got a text message from Jay asking if I’d be able to stop and pick up a quick pick lotto ticket for tonight’s lotto drawing (hey, a dollar and a dream, right?) so I stopped at a local Stewart’s shop to pick one up.

While I was in there and paying for my slim chance at becoming a millionaire, I happened to notice that they were giving away free mini samples of ice cream…sign me UP!

Considering the fact that I love anything free AND I love their ice cream, I was psyched as it was; but then I realized that it wasn’t just any ice cream. Oh no. They were giving away samples of their new Pumpkin Pie flavored ice cream which is mixed with big chunks of graham cracker crust. Oh man, it’s amazing. If you live near a Stewart’s, you need to get this, stat.


(In case you’re wondering, yes, the ice cream did drip right into my lap. Woops.)


I was in the mood for absolutely nothing for dinner tonight. It’s very rare that this happens, but when it does, I just hate it. Nothing sounded appealing, and I really didn’t feel like cooking anything. So I was rather proud of the fact that I actually took the time to put together a salad, when all I really wanted to do was dive head first into my bag of pumpkin spice bagels. Winking smile


I made a simple veggie salad, topped with a MorningStar Farms veggie burger.


On the side, I snacked on a serving of baked tortilla scoops with a heavy helping of pineapple peach salsa. I actually picked this up a couple weeks ago while at Target but just dug into it tonight. It’s been over a year since I last had this stuff- I can’t believe I had forgotten about it for so long!


While we were eating dinner, my mother-in-law stopped in quick to drop off some goodies that she picked up for us while shopping at our favorite outlets today.


I’d say she knows us pretty darn well, wouldn’t you?

I can’t wait to dig into these!

Do you play the lotto? Have you ever won anything?

    I have that banana peanut butter. I love anything banana and it’s good, but not great. It’s definitely banana flavored artificially.

    Those mini ice creams are so cute! I once won 50 pounds from a lottery scratch card…I was like 12 so it felt like more like a million…don’t ask why I was playing the lottery at such a young age!

    There is nothing better than pumpkin ice cream and when it’s free, that’s even better! I love te mini cone! So cute! :)

    I’ve always wanted to try Morningstar Farms veggie burgers. I don’t know which one to try. I’ve had Boca Burgers and I’m not a fan of the soy meats. I’d rather have a veggie burger made from real veggies. Which one do you recommend?
