Sometimes you just need something a little wild and crazy like Unicorn Ice Cream to make you smile! Ps. this is Unicorn Ice Cream is a No Churn Ice Cream!
I have a few recipes that I really want to post for y’all like chili cheese dip with mozzarella biscuit bombs, cheese straws and stir fry but I just needed to post something cheerful and happy to brighten my day so those will have to wait. Today is going to be all about Unicorn Ice Cream! Why Unicorn Ice Cream? Because I’m an adult and if I want to make and write about Unicorn Ice Cream, I can. haha Right now this Unicorn ice cream is making me smile so that’s what I want to share with y’all today.
That made sense right? Adulthood = Unicorn Ice Cream. hahaha
Ok, well it sounded better in my head. However, I’m going to need you to work with me here. I’m running on little sleep and pain pills and I’m praying that this post makes some kind of sense. 😉
Yesterday I had my procedure down in NC for my kidney stone and we’re all crossing our fingers that this will take care of it. I really hope that I’ll be back to feeling normal soon. We were there for hours, we got there about 7:15am and I think that we were finally on the way home about 2pm or 2:30pm. Thomas brought me home, drugged up and sleepy but thanks to the construction workers outside our apartment building I got no rest. Every time I fell asleep I was scared awake by the workers yelling outside or turning on another piece of equipment. I know that the world doesn’t revolve around me haha but yesterday was definitely one of those days where I wanted to at least pretend that it did and yell at them. Well, I mean I didn’t yell at them or throw anything in their general direction but oh how I wanted to. Today I’m doing a little better, it actually feels good to sit on the couch. The pain is still there but hopefully it’ll start to ease up a bit, right now I literally feel like a truck plowed into my side and back. ouch!
So you know how much I want this pain to go away right? Well how about the main reason I want all of this to go away is so that I can go back to eating super low carb again? haha I never thought the day would come when I was actually upset that I was having to eat pasta and bread.
Before this Kidney stone, (about 4 weeks ago) I had been doing great with eating low carb. I had more energy, I wasn’t bloated, my tummy felt great and I was loosing weight. Then when I got the Kidney stone, I had to start eating breads and such again because of the pain pills. Now maybe my tummy is just weird but if I try to eat low carb while I’m taking these strong pain pills I get sick.
However, if I eat pasta or bread before I take the pills I don’t get as sick. So I’ve been adding more carbs to my diet and I have to admit that it’s actually depressing me. I use to be in LOVE with carbs and now I’m actually looking forward to getting back into my low carb routine!
Seriously….who am I?
So I needed something to take my mind off the fact that I WAS loosing weight before this stupid kidney stone, the fact my my back and side feels like I got run over by a truck and the fact that I really should be sleeping right now instead of trying to write a blog post. I made and photographed this ice cream like a month ago, so don’t worry, I’m not actually in the kitchen working on stuff today, the only time I’ve been in the kitchen today was when I was reheating the mac and cheese Thomas made for me. 😉
However, sharing this ice cream is what’s taking my mind off of all of the stuff going on with me 🙂 Just looking at the colors makes me smile and I hope that it brings a smile to your face too.
Ps. You can find rainbow sprinkles like I used here on amazon but I’m sure that they have them at your local grocery store or hobby/craft store too.
