Is it hot where you are? It is hot, very hot, in San Antonio. So the best solution is ice cream. We actually ate the ice cream pictured at a lovely little scoop shop in Denver called Bonnie Brae Ice Cream. They make their own waffle cones there, so it smells really good. They also have Sam's favorite flavor, butter brickle. For some reason, it seems that the only place to get butter brickle is in Colorado. They just don't have it in Texas. I had rum raisin, and it turns out the secret is soaking the raisins in rum.
It's really too hot right now to do much of anything except eat ice cream. And it is very hard to type a blog post with an ice cream cone in hand. So I will leave you today with some images of chilly treats and a mandate that you get a cone this weekend. Let me know what flavor you have, and enjoy.
