I dashed into the market and grabbed 2 cartons of coconut milk ice cream. It wasn’t until I got back into the car that I realized those TINY little cartons were $5 a piece! What?! Now financially committed to my craving, we drove home and dished out the ice cream. While it was as hard as a rock, it still tasted lovely and quelled my sweet tooth. I felt satisfied.
