There is a reason why pregnant women love ice cream and pickles. I think it is because kids love ice cream and pickles. When all other food fails there is always ice cream and pickles. The sweet and salty can't be beat.
At the Stoker house we recently started Friday night Sunday night. Since we are trying to save money instead of going out every Friday night we eat at home and make yummy ice cream sundays. The kids love it and it is fun to have a super tasty treat on date night. Don't worry, Brandon and I still go on dates once in awhile, but for the most part Friday night Sunday night is a good alternative.
