Hello Loves! The GF Gidget household has been decidedly dearth of desserts as of late. I honestly hadn’t noticed until GF Guy’s forlorn face emerged from our freezer. We were completely out of coconut milk ice cream, muffins, quick breads,…. You get the picture. (I also think he has become a bit spoiled! hahaha) To make up for my dessert provider fail, I decided to create a new coconut milk ice cream flavor for him.
GF Guy like his ice cream very frozen (not soft serve), so I woke up early to make it so it would be frozen by dinner time. The ice cream flavor du jour turned out to be delicious! GF Guy was happy and all is now right in the world!

In honor of my birthday I have decided to ask birthday questions this week.
Birthday Question “du jour”: What is the best birthday gift you have ever received?
The best one I can remember was getting my car detailed. I HATE, LOATHE, AND DESPISE cleaning my car. I was so happy to have someone else do it! hahaha
