Okay eating fruit – esp watermelon – and only veggies with grilled hamburger pattie but MUST. HAVE. KETCHUP. Would rather buy because lazy. Only whole30 compliant ketchup I find – $29.

Give up trying to buy and start trying to make. Hit the jackpot with this recipe.

GBlue Bell Cookie Two Step Ice Cream shows up at my house.

LITERALLY cannot watch it being consumed. LITERALLY feel the need to leave the room. Was raised in an ice cream family, so blame my parents.

To buy: more dates for sweetening next batch of ketchup
