Chocolate Chip Mac Nut Cookie + Coffee Ice Cream Sandwiches

Yesterday my husband and I did a mini marathon of Community. It’s been syndicated and will be airing on Comedy Central on Friday nights. Cool. Cool cool cool.

I realize that Community is not a show for everyone. The humor and pop culture references may go over your head. I admit, sometimes I don’t get all of them either. But, to me, it has a very similar feel to Futurama. The characters and episode plots can be over-the-top, fantastical, and down right ridiculous at times, but in the end, they still manage to hit you in your gut. Then you have all the feels.

If you ever need a little pick me up from all those feels, I recommend trying this ice cream sandwich.

Greendale is the best school in the entire world.
