Right now, I am sitting here enjoying a delicious milkshake. I love milkshakes, and this one makes me especially happy because I made it at home with stuff I already had in my cabinets. And I didn't use any ice cream. In the past, the only decent milkshakes I've had have come from fast food establishments. My own, made in the blender with ice cream, milk, and chocolate syrup, were a far, lumpy cry from what I really wanted. Until now.
Today I got an email from a friend--no words, just a link to the Hillbilly Housewife's new website. I had heard of her, but when I last visited the website was under construction. So I clicked the link and tried to decide what to look at first. That's when I saw the link to making milkshakes without ice cream. I tried it and within five minutes I had a milkshake that tasted like it could've come from a fast food place. This is very exciting, because next time I have a milkshake craving I will not have to drive all the way out to Hardee's and pay way too much for it. Usually I just tough it out, but now I won't have to.
So, Susanne, thank you, you wonderful wonderful person. I will definitely be back to read more.
