Embrace the Chill

The weather forecast calls for more snow. I hear groans and whining from various sources (most of them from the power behind the snow shovel) but I love the cold! Snow is beautiful! There's nothing like breathing the frigid air in through your nose and having your nostrils freeze shut. And as you're snowed in, there are all sorts of online toys you and your chilly offspring can peruse whilst dreaming of warmer weather.

Instead of complaining about something we can't change, let's all just give in. And how do we do that, you might ask? By eating ice cream.

Specifically, by eating ice cream we made ourselves and then creating various tasty combinations with toppings and such. To aid you in these efforts, I'm giving away a mini ice cream maker and a sundae kit.


This midget ice cream maker uses only a few batteries and freezer space to make your very own ice cream; no salt and no cranking. The sundae kit includes, a scoop, 4 cups, 4 spoons, sprinkles, mini marshmallows, chocolate sauce, paper hat, and ice cream ideas. Nothing like giving yourself a continuous brain freeze to help you adjust to cooler climates!

To enter, do one of the following, leaving a separate comment for each entry:
  • Comment here, telling me your favorite ice cream flavor.
  • Follow my blog.
  • Follow my cake blog.
  • Mention this giveaway on Facebook (sorry, I don't use Twitter).
  • Blog about this giveaway (for three entries).

Contest closes Sunday, January 17 at midnight.

I never enter giveaways, but no one else ever gives away icecream makers. And it is so cute!

And so my favorite icecream flavor most of the time is Heavenly Hash. Mmmm.

And I just noticed your bookworm list over there on the right, and I must say, you have good taste. Except the only ones I've read are Mistborn and Eragon. Which ones do you recommend?

I know it's weird, but my favorite ice cream is vanilla...I'm the freak that goes to Baskin Robbins and gets vanilla soft serve. Why stray from a classic!

I love mint chocolate chip. Another yummy...peppermint ice cream made into a shake with egg nog. SO GOOD. I like almost anything with chocolate, frankly. I have a diet that needs ruining so your ice cream maker might really come in handy! ;o)

I also love the snow. I'm just having a hard time with it this winter because I've been on bed rest. No sledding, no shoveling the snow, sigh...

My favorite flavor is cookies and cream.

I was already a follower, so does that count?

Favorite ice cream? Western Family's Mudpie. It's usually on sale, 3 for $10, and I can eat half a carton in one sitting it's that good. I may or may not have done that daily throughout my last pregnancy. I'll never say.

Mud Pie is so yummy!

elesa said...

Ok, so the next question is, where can I buy myself one of those icecream makers?
