It’s fine if you want to pull my crazy card on this one, but I’m not going down alone! I’m pushing good ol’ Mother Nature out in front this time! I mean, seriously…what the heck is she up to anyway? Just the other day it was 50°F (10°C) and now, as I draft this post, it is a “balmy” 10°F (-12°C) with a wind chill of -4°F (-20°C)…neg-a-tive FOUR!

What…THEEEEE…fudge crackers!?

So maybe I wrapped up in my fuzzy robe, cranked up the heat, and alternated careful sips of molten lava hot coffee as I spooned this up, but it was TOTALLY worth it!

Based off my original Cake Batter Protein Ice Cream and the much-loved spin-off, Blueberry Protein Ice Cream, I put last week’s leftover pumpkin to good use! And ok, so maybe it was a good excuse to break out the peanuts and cereal “sprinkles” again! But hey, when a craving hits, you go for it, right? And luckily in only a few short hours (which I used for a good sweaty workout), I had EXACTLY what I was craving!

Crazy or not, I’m kinda hoping that I just blew your mind so much that you’ll let me slide on the fact that I didn’t get around to putting up another photography post this week. I promise to get to work on something this weekend!
