We’ve had an AMAZING summer this year. We’ve been going to the pool, beach, lacrosse, baseball tournaments and camp. I recently received my credit card statement and I can tell by the amount how much fun we had!

My husband and I decided to start getting back to normal and we put our family on a no eating out monthly challenge. I can tell you right now that this is much harder on my kids than it is on us!  

I’ve had to plan a little bit more and make sure I had some backup meals in case we stayed out longer than expected.  I even packed a cooler lunch when we went to the local theme park, Carowinds (We have season passes).  My kids thought I was crazy!

Since we weren’t eating out I’ve been making extra treats at the house.  I’ve made cookies, ice cream cakes, and some homemade appetizers.  It’s helped us all when we feel like we were missing out.

These bite size ice cream snacks and so easy and fun to make.  My kids were loving it.  They’ve been getting bored now that it’s the end of summer so I’ve been trying to keep them busy and put them to work on these treats.  

We found this limited edition Mayfield Cherry Chocolate Chip flavor at Publix (you can use this store locator to find Mayfield at your local grocery store!)   They were loving the carton.  Mayfield has been around since 1923 and recently went back to their original name, Mayfield Creamery.  I’ve actually visited a Mayfield dairy before and know they use fresh cream from real dairy with no artificial hormones.
