Can you believe I’m about to do a post not about burgers? I can’t, but here we go!
I think the simple things in life are often underrated. Some people say that when things come too easy, we don’t appreciate them. Well, to those people, I say what the heck do you know? Have you ever tried making my super easy cookies & cream ice cream? So easy and yet time after time, I’m still floored by how delicious it is in a bowl, in a cup, on a cone or even in an ice cream sandwich.
I definitely appreciate the ice cream and I appreciate that it literally takes about five minutes of my time (to whisk the sugar and milk, and crush the cookies) to produce 1.5L of awesomeness. And above all else, I appreciate the joy it brings to my friend’s kids when they come over and smoosh their cute little faces in the ice cream. (I don’t appreciate any ice cream stains on the couch but hey.)
Life is full of things too complicated. Why not indulge in simple pleasures?
ps. Life is also too short to not go to a whole different country just for a weekend. So this weekend, Panu and I are off to Singapore! Woohoo! I am stupendously excited about all the hawker food!
