Freedom to Eat (Recipe: Strawberry Cheesecake Milkshake)

We left our three oldest kids with Grandma & Grandpa yesterday. For the first time, they will be spending a week away from home. We’ve left them in the past to go on vacations, so they have been without mom and dad before, but never away from home.

After day one, I miss them a lot. I have discovered that much of my social life and reason for getting out of the house has evolved into being because of them.My good friends are the moms of their friends. My excuse to go outside is to take them out to play. I chat on the phone with their friends moms when their friends call for playdates. We go to the pool because they want to go and I hang out with friends from the neighborhood there. My life has really turned into revolving around them, which I am totally fine with. It just makes it seem a lot more lonely around here, in more ways than one, when they are gone.

One thng I don’t miss yet is feeding the little rascals. As much as I love to cook and to eat, I sometimes miss the cereal and canned biscut days of college! So, without the pressure of having to set a good example to my kids, I’ve quickly reverted back to not caring about three square meals a day, the whole eating breakfast thing, and nutrition. In fact, for breakfast/lunch at 1pm today I had a Strawberry Cheesecake Milkshake. This is something I would never have been able to get away with when my kids were at home, so I’m taking advantage of not having to be the role model and eating tasty desserts for lunch instead.

The Strawberry Cheesecake Milkshake is one of those guilty pleasures of mine, because you know…strawberry cheesecake & milkshakes alone aren’t indulgent enough. Enjoy!

  2. Hurray for breaks from being a ‘role model’! And what a great way to celebrate, with an awesome milkshake. I can almost taste it. I’m so jealous right now.

  3. A little cheating on the nutrition doesn’t hurt anyone. Especially not when the cheesecake milkshake looks that good! How I wish we got the cheesecake kit here. Just for times like these when I’m feeling lazy!

  7. Cereal and canned biscuits? My college diet more closely resembled the “pizza and beer” diets. Or, if we were feeling really indulgent, calzones and boxed wine!

  8. Good for you! I understand completely.
    What’s on the menu for tomorrow? Red wine and popcorn? :)

  17. Never in my life have I encountered a cheesecake milkshake, but once I saw yours..I thought “That’s the ultimate milkshake..why HAVEN’T I seen nor tasted one before?” That looks INCREDIBLE, and now I’m thinking of taking the ‘fat’ route and trying to come up with one using full fat cream cheese! LOL That’s one beautiful milkshake..and I’d love to guzzle that glass, brain freeze or not!

  18. I can’t wait to try this! I love cheesecake, but I didn’t know it can have a milkshake version!

  19. My daughters have gone to stay with their father in Canada for the entire summer. So I know where you’re coming from! I think I cried for a whole afternoon. Then I made cookies and things got better :D I’ll have to try this milkshake, soon. My fav Ben and Jerry’s flavor is strawberry cheesecake, so I’m thinkin’ this will be right up my alley (and my thighs).
