Our sweet Lucy has been with us for less than two weeks and she’s already amazed me so much. Not only is she the worlds best snuggler, she’s also learning remarkably fast. I expected training a puppy to be a chore, but I suppose it depends on the time you have to commit and the individual puppy. She’s already telling us when she needs to go out, so I bought one of those fabric hangers with a bunch of bells on them. Within a few hours she had already picked up that she should ring it to tell us. Nipping on the other hand… that’s taking some time but I imagine with all puppies, that’ll get better in time.

I learned quickly that taking her out most mornings, and definitely wet days, was going to be a chore. It wasn’t so much the issue of going out with an umbrella and she doesn’t fight going out… it’s actually the opposite, she’d love to stay out and play! But my feet were getting soaked and I couldn’t always get my rain boots on quick enough. I found these amazing rain boot style shoes called Sloggers. They’re apparently aimed more towards gardening but they totally suit my needs – waterproof, easy to get on and comfy. Win all around! I could wear them all day! They’ve become my go to dog walking shoe… soccer and t-ball game shoe! Those fields can be pretty sloppy at times! I’m almost enjoying this cold dreary weather we’re having just so I have an extra excuse to wear them!

I adore ice cream. If you asked me to pick just one flavor, I’d never be able to give you a definitive answer. I love so many… coffee, mint chocolate chip, cookies and cream, chocolate, classic vanilla, fruity ice creams and most definitely strawberry!

When it comes to strawberry ice cream, there’s no doubt about it, homemade is always better. And it has to have a bold strawberry flavor with at the very least, small pieces throughout of real fruit… chunks are even better.

I’ve already shared a classic strawberry ice cream and a dairy free strawberry coconut milk ice cream, so I needed to put a twist on one of my absolute favorite flavors this year…

Super creamy homemade strawberry ice cream with swirls of fluffy meringue throughout and… bits of fresh strawberries! It’s so cream and 100% bursting with strawberry goodness! An absolute must make for all strawberry ice cream fans.
