strawberry walnut chocolate chunk ice cream!!
{via food loves writing}

feast your eyes on strawberry walnut chocolate chunk ice cream!! ahhhhhhh.

my next kitchen gadget purchase needs to be an ice cream maker.

i also need to figure out how to acquire raw milk down here in gawgiaaa. i *think* i can get it if it’s labeled “for pets” but i’m not entirely certain.

in virginia, you are only allowed to drink raw milk if it comes from your own cow. the way ingenious & determined folks get around this, i recently found out, is to buy into a “cow-share” and pay a farmer each month to feed and take care of “their” cow. the farm provides the owner with fresh milk each week. isn’t that nifty?

by-the-by, the method of drinking from your own cow is much preferred to purchasing raw milk in any sort of store, in my opinion. while raw milk is awesome & nutritious, it can be terribly dangerous if not sourced with extreme caution as you can read about here.
