I had a wonderful dinner with the college girls tonight, and a trip to Mackies 19.2 to try out their waffles before we leave Aberdeen! Mmm mm mmmm, that was a good waffle! I had chocolate orange ice cream, with banana, strawberries and chocolate sauce. So really it was a healthy dessert.
Ice cream once in a weekend just isn’t enough, so today Matthew and I headed to Mackies 19.2 in Marischal Square for two scoops and a coffee. So delicious! I was hoping to finally try out the waffles I’ve heard such good things about, but having spent the day watching the World Cup we didn’t get out to Mackies until almost dinner time, so I restrained myself and just went for a scoop of Strawberry Swirl and Rocky Road. Mmm mm mmm!
When Mum and I were there in January I had plans to go back and do a full blog post on this delicious new ice cream parlour, but then I got pregnant and the nausea kicked in and my sweet tooth disappeared so I just didn’t get round to it. Now that my sweet tooth is finally returning I’m hoping to push it higher up my to do list!

I had a lovely lunch date with my Mama today, at the new Mackie’s Ice Cream Parlour in Marischal Square. We were incredibly tempted to be like our lovely Granny Stewart in her final years of life and just skip straight to desert, but we shared a yummy baguette before getting on to the really good stuff. There was almost too many delicious things to choose from so I’m hoping this becomes a regular thing, so we can try them all!
