This entry was made specifically for the Still Life Photography Contest.

Between my laptop breaking, my baby teething, going broke and having really crappy rainy weather, I haven't had much time to think about cooking or baking for the contest. Hope this is original enough for the rules.

One thing that I always have the time to do is think about how much I want to eat ice cream (seriously, I think about it ALL the time). So Saturday when I finally got a few minutes to myself, I looked at what ingredients I had. I saw the peanut butter staring back at me. Thunder struck and I started laughing like a villain (this all happened very quietly because I didn't want to wake my baby).

Confession: This is the last bowl... SURE! shake your head at me but IT WAS WORTH IT!

The Food
This ice cream was made with 1 part heavy cream, 1 part whole milk, peanut butter, vanilla sugar, reese's chips, belgian milk chocolate chunks and a whole lot of awesome.

The Photography
The camera I use is actually an HD video cam (I know, I know don't have anything better).

Today for the first time in what seems like years, the sun came out for literally 10 minutes, then it started pouring again.
I set everything up, less the ice cream and took a few shots with my camera to see what it would look like. When I felt confident, I grabbed the ice cream and struggled with the container a bit until the sun started to retreat (nooooo!! I exclaimed *very quietly*). I took a few shots and felt that this was the best one (you should see the ones of the empty bowl, THEY ARE PERFECT! guh).

Wow! You actually read all of that? sheesh, I wrote it and I wouldn't even read it all. muahahahaha! Thanks :)

Looks like something directly out of an ad. Sure you didn't steal this from somewhere? xD I'm kidding of course but you did an amazing job and I bet that is the best thing anyone has ever tasted :)

That is a great compliment! Thank You, I really tried to make it as pretty as it tasted, I'm not a photographer so it's hard for me to imagine the design of how things should look together. Regardless of what happens with the contest I am very happy with the outcome :)
