As yummy as it sounds, ice cream is not the answer to all of life’s problems. It might be the answer for some of them, but, really, I do better with regular, strenuous exercise. Alas. I have no interest or motivation at present, so let’s have some Ice Cream… Polaroid Originals Ice Cream Pastels, that […]
