I've become dependent on the ice you have to buy! I feel a little guilty every time I do it. One day my regular source was out of ice, and I drove around until I found a convenience store that sold it. I have plenty of ice cube trays, but the ice I buy just tastes better. It even tastes better the the cubes from daughter's ice maker fridge. The only problem is that there's always a big chunk of frozen cubes in the bag. I solve that by bashing the bag on the sidewalk before I put it into my freezer. I hope I'm not alone in being such a pill about ice!
