The Man

Today I am thankful for:

This Guy

(the one on the right)

Because he is an awesome dad

Because he is an awesome human being

Because he works hard, and learns about what he doesn't understand

Because he is good to the core

Because he cares about our relationship and wants to make it better--and is willing to do what it takes

Love you Babe!

Try Something New

When it comes to eating, I have a tendency to stick to my favorites, but a summer without chocolate has forced me to be a little more adventurous with my treats. If you have an ice cream maker, I would highly recommend this recipe for carmelized banana ice cream from Best Bites.

I did make the caramel sauce she recommends, but the ice cream totally stands on its own. The bananas make it so creamy! I used whipping cream instead of heavy cream and the consistency was awesome. I think it would be dreamy with hot fudge sauce, but, I'll have to wait to see :)
