I’m turning 39 in a few days. I’m not really sure, I may be mistaken – but I think I’ve been eating my feelings.
I know what you’re about to say – 39 ain’t nothin’ but a number.
39 is now child bearing age.
And yes, 39 is just a number.
And yes, women my age are popping out children for the first time – And that’s amazing.
To me, however, 39 is a pretty high number. To me, this means I am almost middle age. When I look at my life, sometimes this means I haven’t experienced enough.
It means I have more living to do.
And this really, really hit me.
So I may or may not be eating my feelings a little.
Flow with me, let’s talk about this Boozy Oreo & Chocolate Cream Milkshake.
A couple of weeks ago I was out with my very grumpy teenager and my overzealous eight year old.
Do you have teens at home? Can someone please tell me when this grumpy sullen stage will finally end?
Anyway, after a full day of shopping we were STARVING. And I don’t know about you, but walking around with two children on two far ends of the emotional spectrum as hunger steadily increases is a bit hard to swallow. I was at my wits end, people. The closest thing to us was a Shake Shack and I made a beeline towards it. I may have dragged a kid.
Eff the calories. It was Saturday and I was HAN.GRY
Aside from the usual burgers and fries Shake Shack sells custard shakes. If you’ve ever seen the size of my ass, you know – I’m not one to turn down a milkshake. That day among their flavors was a cookies n cream milkshake, so I ordered that. I was thinking vanilla shake with Oreo cookies.
Who doesn’t like cookies –n– cream?
What I didn’t anticipate was chocolate ice cream in the shake. And let me tell you, cookies –n– cream milkshakes are better with scoops of chocolate ice cream.
This ‘eat your feelings’ shake is an homage to the Shake Shack milkshake.
Yeah, you heard me.
This milkshake starts with four giant ass scoops of chocolate ice cream. It’s blended with milk and heavy cream. 4-5 Oreo cookies are blended into this mixture, along with chocolate liqueur and a pinch of salt ‘cause I like to make the chocolate flavor pop, pop, pop. Finally I added an ounce of vodka. Some would add more. When it comes to booze I always encourage more.
The milkshake is served over more ice cream and topped with more Oreo cookies and melted chocolate. This is a straight up ‘eat your feelings’ kind of shake. Have it on Saturday night. I heard Saturdays were calorie free.
Go on, get your blender out and make this beauty.
Don’t forget a giant straw. And a spoon. You will need a spoon.
