Happy National Ice Cream Day
I wasn’t always a big ice cream person.
Even as a kid, I could kinda take it or leave it.
I did like the Major League Baseball Helmet Sundays from Dairy Queen though. Soft vanilla with strawberries on top.
And the ice cream floats my dad would make on Sunday evenings were pretty good.
And a pretty good late ’70s sugar bomb rush too.
As I got older, and more into fitness, I didn’t touch ice cream for a long time. Thought frozen yogurt was better.
But, as I got older and more lenient with my diet, I tried it all…
Italian ice in South Philly.
Gelatto in Rome.
Dippin’ Dots in the mall.
Nothing beat just good ol’ plain ice cream.
Milk. Sugar. Flavoring of your choice.
I’m still partial to a creamy, tasty peach or blueberry or black raspberry.
Maybe a butterscotch or maple walnut to change off.
Like the hard ice cream rather than the soft. But in a pinch, it’ll do.
The heat index is to be over 100 degrees here in New Jersey today.
Might need to dip into some tasty ice cream at some point.
Seems only appropriate!
