They are basically like a black-eyed pea, but they're purple! I don't really like them but my hubby does.

Oh yeah! When I got home from work tonight, I went straight to the freezer for a big bowl of Haagen Dazs mint chip. That was good enough for dinner!

Whoa....never thought of taking a bath in ice cream!! Since we've been having 112+ degree temperatures, I might have to get it a try!
