July 16 - National Ice Cream Day

July is National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday, which is July 16, is National Ice Cream Day.

What local ice cream did you choose to celebrate?

      1. Laloo's goat milk Molasses Tipsycake ice cream from the Temescal farmer's market....delicious. Plus a spoonful each of their fig and strawberry flavors. I have done my duty for 2006.

          Mmmm, almost bought the molasses today. A pint of Laloo's cost me $6.99 at Whole foods. Same price at the farmer's market?

            $7.00. It was really delicious. Had both oatmeal cookie fragments and a couple of raisins in it. It wasn't gritty, as you describe the fig.

        2. I was sitting with a dish of ice cream (Double Rainbow vanilla with a homemade brownie) when I pulled this up. I guess I'll have to stop at Tucker's later, too.

            I just got home with a container of Double Rainbow Vanilla which I went out and bought on purpose because I read it was National Ice Cream Day. I'll be having mine with a drizzle of sorghum on top.

              The venerable Double Rainbow, always a good thing to have on hand.

                Where are you from? I don't think I've heard the word "sorghum" since I left Missouri a long time ago.

                  As a kid growing up in California, we had sorghum (syrup, to be proper) with our pancakes all the time. Of course, my grandmother was from Missouri!

            2. Didn't know about it until now! Luckily I have some black sesame gelato from Marco Polo at home. :-D.
