I wish ice cream was the most healthy food in the universe, more healthy even than fruits and vegetables.
It's not an accident that many of my wishes have to do with food. I grew up on a farm where we worked hard and were able to eat a lot without getting fat. Most of what we ate we grew ourselves--veggies from the garden, fruit from the orchard, or beef/milk, pork, and chickens/eggs from our own stock. There was plenty of food and no one had to hold back. We even slathered home-churned butter on our veggies without a second thought. In the summertime, the biggest treat was homemade ice cream. My mom used an uncooked mix...back then we didn't fret about salmonella from our eggs.
Times have sure changed. For me, ice cream is now a once a month treat. I'm especially fond of Ben & Jerry's Coffee, Coffee, Buzz, Buzz, Buzz. I do have a Cuisinart ice cream maker which is pretty cool, but I mostly use it for interesting frozen yogurt concoctions. A container of ice cream in my freezer would be way too tempting.
