In honor of Cleveland remembering that it’s supposed to be pretty outside, I’ve decided to post my ice cream post of all posts!
You see, ice cream has been on my mind a lot lately. It started when I gave myself a good ol’ green pat on the back for embracing yet another one of my green living challenges to put less in the land fills and make this world a better place [oh, the utopia!!!]. What did I do, you ask…I ate my ice cream in an ice cream cone!!! We’ve advanced to the next level, people! First, a ceramic mug for coffee and now an edible conduit for ice cream! Try it sometime; it makes you feel better instantaneously!
Second piece of frozen-indulgence thoughts that broadsided me recently…a friend asked me, “So what is going to happen with ice cream trucks? With the gas prices rising, how can they stay in business?” Granted, ice cream trucks are like the neighborhood bully on diesel that sings like a broken jewelry box and robs the other neighborhood kids blind, but still…I gotta have my choco taco!
Finally, while enjoying some Mexican food w/ a few of my classmates this weekend, some indulged in a shared bowl of fried ice cream while another most serendipitously noted, “What’s the deal with fried ice cream. I mean, it’s already bad b/c it’s ice cream, now you’re going to fry it?” Uh…Note taken.
Hark, Cleveland, summer is on its way!
