Get to Know You Monday (Vol. 3)


I simply adore Monday's now. You make me smile, friends. I hope you are enjoying the opportunity to get to know one another as much as I am. If this is your first time joining us for Get to Know You Monday, you can catch up here and here.

Today's question is an easy-peasy one. I will explain why at the end.

Question: What is your favorite flavor of ice cream? If you do not like ice cream, do you have a favorite dessert?

This question came to my mind as I passed by one of my favorite pictures hanging in the hallway of our home. It always makes me smile.


The two sillies above (hubby and youngest son) both love butter pecan. My son said he's pretty sure chocolate ice cream resided in his cup at the time of the photo though.

Since I am sharing their favorite flavor, I might as well share the favorites of the entire family.

My son's girlfriend, who is very much a part of our family, loves mint chocolate chip.


My favorite? I love all things coffee flavored too. Just one scoop, please. You can keep the cone and I will pass on any toppings. Simple, yet oh so yummy.


Now it's time for you to share your favorite. Feel free to share for the entire family too. If you're like me that may require reaching out to confirm what their favorites are. Want to include how you take your ice cream? Go right ahead. The floor is yours. Pictures can be shared on my blog Facebook page.

Afterwards, I would be grateful if you would hop on over to Circles of Faith to read my post. I am a regular contributor for them and today's post takes you back to how my Love Dare journey began. If you've been following along, it goes back a little further than I initially shared. Read post here.

  1. I'm a peanut butter & chocolate person. The one Baskin Robbins makes is the best, but I'll take any variation that includes both my besties. :) My husband is mint chocolate chip all the way.
    Fun blog topic!

  6. Uh oh...my comment disappeared. I'll try again!

    Ice cream is really yummy on a hot summer's day, however, alas...I have sensitive teeth so I don't often choose it over other desserts such as creme brulee which I adore! However, I have found that when I have ice cream on a cone, I am able to enjoy it without pain! So, my favorite flavor when eaten on a cone would be butter pecan or mocha almond fudge! Yum! I can enjoy it that way one lick at a time!

    Love, Joan

  11. I am loving getting to know you on Mondays! :-) Oh, we are huge ice cream fans. My favorite flavor..hmmm…that's a hard one. Anything chocolate, really. Lots of chocolate. And I love heath bar topping. Mmmmm. I may have to head to Page's (local ice cream joint) later.

    1. I'm probably more vanilla than chocolate but if I'm doing toppings it will be something chocolate. So did we make it to Page's?

  25. I have two favorites...if we go to Baskin Robbins in the summer months, it's baseball nut! I have loved this flavor since I was about ten! (and that's a long time!). My second favorite, that I will have at home, is vanilla!

  27. I love Mint Chocolate Chip, with Rocky Road as a close second!! I like to have it in a cup with the cone squished down on top. My ultimate, forget-the-diet, please-apply-directly-to-my-hips indulgence is something I used to get at Baskin-Robbins. A banana royale. A scoop of mint chocolate chip, a scoop of rocky road, a sliced banana, hot fudge, and nuts. It was like 10,000 calories. I miss those days!!

    HA!

    I also like these coffee candies that I get at CVS. I have been known to eat a whole bag in a day.

    Don't tell.

  29. A day late and a dollar short, but who cares...

    I adore chocolate peanut-butter ice cream specifically from Baskin Robins. And as luck would have it, that is my boys favorite too!!

    My girl loves Blue Bunnies extra chunky cookie dough, and as luck would have it that is my mans favorite too!!

    Do you think we influenced them? ;-D
