On Memorial Day Jason and I went to a cook-out at our friends’ house. I wasn’t prepared for the dessert they had planned. They made “spaghetti ice cream!” No, I don’t mean spaghetti flavored ice cream…nasty! (This is not Baskin-Robbins’ newest flavor.) They served us ice cream that looked just like spaghetti noodles, topped with marinara sauce, parmesan cheese, and even meatballs on the side. It was wild! I wish all meatballs tasted like chocolate ice cream!
It tasted so good and the level of childlike giddiness in the room was at an all-time high. How could you not be smiling from ear to ear, eating food that is so fun?
This experience reminded me how important it is to add a bit of playfulness and fun into our day-to-day lives. It’s kind of like exercise. Everyone knows it’s good for you and when you actually get motivated to do it, you always feel better. Often we have to make a considerable effort to be more playful and in return we undoubtedly feel better. We get a chance to experience some of the joys, laughter, and excitement that childhood is made of.
I’m pumped that we are offering this fun device on our store, The Lemonade Stand. It’s fun to offer our customers joy in a box!
Oh, and by the way, you have to eat it with a fork.
