Epic Battle: Cheeseburger vs. Ice Cream

In honor of Sadie’s second birthday, Ryan and I decided to put an ongoing question to rest.

Ryan and I have continually discussed a certain situation involving Sadie for a couple months now.

If given equal access to a cheeseburger or a soft serve vanilla cone, which would Sadie pick?


Contender #1

Contender #2

I’m sure you’re thinking “C’mon Julie, she’s a dog! Of course she’ll pick the burger.” Well, Sadie takes after her mama (me) and adores McDonald’s soft serve vanilla cones. She doesn’t waste any time licking… she goes right for the bite and can polish a cone off in no time!

Ryan and I both agreed that she’d pick the cheeseburger first based on smell alone, so we thought we’d make the epic battle interesting. We thought that letting Sadie lick the cone first to get a taste of the sweet deliciousness before giving her free reign to select the food item of choice, might make the battle between the cheeseburger and ice cream a little more interesting.

And so, after ordering a vanilla cone and a plain cheeseburger from McDonald’s, the battle ensued.

Check out the video to see which one came out on top! πŸ˜€

Before all the birthday excitement, Ryan and I enjoyed a simple dinner of homemade butternut squash soupΒ and grilled cheese sandwiches.

The soup was really to easy to make and only used four ingredients:

  • Butternut squash
  • Carrots
  • Onion
  • Chicken broth

Who doesn’t love grilled cheese and soup? It’s a classic!

Dessert was a soft serve vanilla cone… and no, not the one we got for Sadie. πŸ™‚
