Ben & Jerry's Mint Chocolate Cookie

Our friend came over for dinner today and, remembering that we both like mint, brought Ben & Jerry's Mint Chocolate Cookie ice cream. He didn't realize it, but it's our favorite B&J flavor, and we hadn't had it in a long time. The mint flavor is perfect (not too strong, not too sweet) and it has big pieces of Oreo-like cookie throughout. A pint of heaven delivered to us on Easter!

Tropical milkshake

Looking at a banana that was well past its prime, I had a sudden craving for a smoothie or milkshake. A few moments later, inspiration struck: banana plus milk plus Haagen-Dazs Pineapple-Coconut ice cream equals one yummy tropical shake.
