Easy homemade Cookie Dough Ice Cream that’s packed with mini chocolate chips and cookie dough! No ice cream machine needed to make this either!
Saturday’s weather was just perfect, the sun was shining and there was a slight breeze blowing through downtown and I managed to spend most of the morning running around without even having to get into my car. Saturday morning my brother and his fiancee came over and we walked over to first farmer’s market of the summer! Ok…well it’s actually still spring but you know what I mean.
The farmer’s market was bustling with tons of people and there were vendors everywhere. Normally the first of the year is kind of slow at the farmer’s market from what I remember but this year it was packed. There were table and table of fresh vegetables, trays of freshly baked bread and farm fresh eggs. Little old ladies with their crafts for sale were lined up in the middle of the market and my favorite little dog treat maker was there too.
We got our free tomato plant (because if you were one of the first 500 people you got a free tomato plant) and I picked up some of my favorite oatmeal packets and some local honey sticks! My oatmeal lady (Libby’s Faithful Crumbs)…ok I know that makes me sound really old hahaha but she’s the best and as soon as I walked up to the table to she was so excited because I had sent her another customer, another friend of mine had seen my post about her little oatmeal packets that she makes and had bought some from her because of me! That totally made my day y’all!
I bumped into a ton of people that I knew, including our cousins Josh, Ella and Olivia and had a great time catching up! My brother started picking on me because I was stopping to talk to everyone that I knew haha. However, as great as the farmer’s market was, one thing totally sucked…I missed out on the fresh strawberries. I thought that I’d grab a few cartons on the way out but by the time we were done shopping all of the strawberries were sold.
So I went back Meghan and Adam back up to their car, ran up to the apartment, dropped off my farmer’s market finds, slipped on my tennis shoes and started walking to Midtown Market. haha
Yep, I knew that they would have some fresh strawberries and I was right! After a 3 mile walk (round trip), I was climbing back up to the apartment with fresh strawberries, Orange and Chocolate milk, the best chicken salad known to man and freshly baked croissants.
Then it was lunch with Thomas down at the coffee shop and then we were off for a movie date to see Captain America in Civil War! I don’t know about y’all but I’m totally #TeamCap when it comes to Marvel movies haha.
Then well, then I rewarded myself for walking all over downtown and I sat down and enjoyed the last few bites of ice cream in the freezer…….mainly because Thomas has eaten the rest….
