We've been blessed with lots of sun lately, a bit cooler than what spring should be, but hey, no blizzards, no snow--I'll take it!

  1. Love your Friday Links ---and yay for ice cream season!

  2. Vegetable ice cream?! I dunno about that. Your ice cream sounds/looks much better ;) HAPPY FRIDAY!

  3. My Cadbury loving family would love those! I've been craving avocado lately too and now I also have a huge craving for a waffle cone filled with ice cream!

  4. I am thinking of eating my Easter chocolate as is because I don't know if I'll have enough patience to wait and bake with it. I'll try though. :)

  5. My avocado addiction knows no bounds. I can barely go a day without one. The weather is nicer here too, but I'd really appreciate if it was actually nice out instead of just better than winter.


I love your comments!
