Ice Cream DENIED

Scott and I and our friends B.A. and S.M. raced to Ben & Jerry's last night around 8:25 p.m. after the Team Green mixer at The Big Bang Piano Bar, as B&J's had its free cone day yesterday.
Free and ice cream...two words that are pretty much irresistible when you match them up.

Sadly, we made it 25 minutes too late. The scoopers and mixers wrapped up their shifts and were tossing out the last remnants of Cherry Garcia and Phish Food as we woefully gazed into the store's glass front. A pity.

Luckily, we went to Publix after our amazingly stressless H&R Block session yesterday (tax mishaps, gotta love 'em!!!) and picked up pints of Whole Fruit Sorbet in Strawberry and Mango flavors, as well as some Purity (a Nashville brand) Vanilla Bean. If you like fruity and cold, Whole Fruit is what you need!

It wasn't Cherry Garcia, but it helped ease the pain.

More later!


  1. Ice cream...the panacea for whatever ails you....
    When I asked an ice cream lover the other day what her favorite flavor was, she responded, "Well, it depends on my mood...."
    WOW...never thought of it like that!

If you review the photos on your phone, you will notice trends. Maybe it's cute baby photos, snaps of your pets doing something adorable and/or ridiculous, shots of your culinary feats or fails, or travel pics.

For me, my photo album is bookended with images of mayonnaise. 
I can explain -- really.
When Scott landed his planning job for Multnomah County, Oregon earlier this spring, we had many details to wrangle and projects to complete. Sell our house in Charlotte, North Carolina - ok, we can do it. Purge or sell many belongings -- that's FUN, let's burn it all! And successfully drive all our belongings for more than 2,800 miles in a 20+-ft. U-Haul truck, with the Ford C-Max with adorable, ridiculous #LorettaDog following along -- errrr, do what now???
The drive from Charlotte to Gresham, OR was my one hesitation. Not exactly known for my smooth driving skills, I rarely enjoy operating a motor vehicle, preferring instead to take frequently-delayed Amtrak train rides to se…

The Best Way to Keep Cannoli Fresh and Other Baltimore Stories

My mom and step-dad were up visiting for Thanksgiving and after gorging ourselves on turkey and the sites of D.C., I took them on a day-trip to Baltimore.

After a visit to my mom's favorite museum (she's a mosaic artist), we aimed for lunch at Rocket to Venus in Hampden. It was closed for lunch, but our trip up Charles St. wasn't for naught - we stumbled onto residents of 34th St. setting up their Christmas displays! This street is Christmas at its best, or worst, depending on your tolerance/interest in all things Christmas. Erin teases me for being a scrooge, but I have to admit, lights and what-not are nice at this cold and dark time of year.

After a brief walk through Hampden, we aimed for lunch at Kooper's Tavern in Fells Point. The tavern was most certainly open, with rowdy sports fans packing the bar and even spilling onto the sidewalk for fresh-shucked oysters. (My friend Gideon would have camped out right there for their Chincoteagues!) After some deliberati…

Friends with Benefits: Meet EV Originals

I love that feeling when a friend accomplishes something wonderful.

Maybe because I'm a only child and thus friends often feel like family, or maybe it's just because we all need a little more raising up these days.

So when I heard that a friend from the Nashville, TN area who co-founded and operates a catering business decided to share her culinary talents with the masses and create a line of bottled products, EV Originals, I did a big ol' happy dance.
