When will I eat you again?


One of the very first items my hubby and I bought when we first stepped into the supermarket here is the Häagen-Dazs ice cream.  They come in tubs of 1 quart each.  For those who are imperial-system-challenged, 1 quart is equivalent to about 2 pints.  And a pint is the size we normally see in Malaysian supermarkets.  In the US, they sell Häagen-Dazs ice cream in smaller sizes too, but we get the quart size cuz that’s more economical.

Anyway, 1 quart of Häagen-Dazs ice cream costs about USD6.99.  Isn’t that awesome?  And last weekend, we stumbled on a grocery store that was selling it at USD4.99 or something, so obviously I stocked up.

In any case, those tubs are still sitting pretty in the freezer, while I wait for my cough to recover completely.  Knowing fully well my passion to always “fight fire with fire”, hubby has strictly barred me from ice cream and cold drinks till I say bye-bye to my cough.  Can’t even have my favorite strawberry milkshake now….SIGH.

Oh, how I miss my ice cream!
